It'd be a pretty rare car you couldn't strip down to the subframe. you should be able to remove entire front clip. As long as the subframe itself it not bent or it's connection to unit body is not damaged, you can rebuild it back to original condition. (I do believe the Forrester is a unibody and not a full body on frame.)
