I finally got around to getting the front end of the Brat lifted up where it should be!!!
It's nice, to actually be able to turn my wheels lock to lock, without them hitting on the body. I've got a little bit of a camber issue, but don't think it's too serious. Also got brand new tires on the front!! No more slicks. I'm going to get some pics as soon as I can scare up a digi camera. Looks good now. Although I left a little bit of the "Subaru Rake" in there, doesn't look right if it's completely level.

I have thought about leveling out the front as well. This spring I am going to a 8/7 body lift for a total lift of 10/9. It won't totally eliminate the rake but it will level it off allot.

Man your right! I thought that was a pic with the rear lift in place and not the front. That should make a big difference in handeling.

Welp, took her out wheelin today, put a good many miles on it, and got into some pretty heavy duty stuff. Couple times I had the Brat laying almost completely on the passenger side, put a lot of stress on the new strut extensions. Nothing seems to have broken, twisted, or come apart in any way. These of course are things you want to hear. Got into some good mud too, nice and sticky.
Road handling is pretty much near stock, hasn't changed a whole lot, although now I can turn my wheels from lock to lock, without them binding on the body. Good thing, specially when wheeling. I can actually take sharp corners without haveing to go at it more than once. Of course if I really want to take a corner (like a 180 hairpin, such as on some good switchbacks we have up here in the mountains), then I'll just blip the throttle and the rear end comes right around. It's sure is fun steering with the gas pedal. Hope to have some pics up tomarrow or Saturday.
