Really suprised at how well it turned out. Was hesitant about the paint job at first, but now that it's finished it actually looks really cool. I bet you can see that thing from MILES away. :banana:

Sweet job on the paint job :burnout:

Got the struts today.

Are these right for true Outback struts? I ordered for a '97 Outback. Rears are 29" long and Fronts are 25" long (Total)

Lol.

Yep I found out today that these are longer then the stockers! I just got done with the rears today and wow its nice. Sits a lot higher! Gonna look good when I get the front done - will attemp tomorrow.

The old rear struts (208,000) the driver sides piston won't even stay up on its own without the spring on it (Amazing!) the tire used to hop off the ground like a basketball. The other side wasn't much better, but would stay up on its own, but didn't have the power to push its self back up.

No more cadillac ride with the new struts :-p

Tom, i found the gasket to that crusty rump roast water pump you are riding on. It goes to show that leftover parts from a blown headgasket can resurrect a $500 car.

I painted the blue legacy white on the bottom. My girl had a real issue at first, but after all, I am Miles Fox and this is a Subaru. She got over it. This will be her car. I'll get a picture. The XT-6 is next.

Scott, the Volvo may as well be TW11, and the legacy 12, you have 13 for the ranks.:banana:

I wish i could find a $500 car. well.. moreso had the $500 for it. LOL.

good deal... 13 seems to be my lucky number. i'll have to make a retro lookin Trashwagon13 logo and maybe have mick or my buddy who has a vinyl cutter (he has a sign shop) i just remembered.

I was wondering how the debate over the blue legacy was gonna turn out. cant wait to see it.

wheres the pic tom?!?

I see that $500 and lower it to $200!!! hehehe... granted, my Legacy isnt an Outback, but it is a $200 running, driving Subaru. :grin:

As for the number 13 - you and I might need to battle that one out, Scott! :lol: 13 has always been my lucky number, too!
does seniority picture into the equation?? :rolleyes:

Next up is my passenger side axle...

Sometime ago this axle was rebuilt by the P.O, seeing how this guy used Zip-ties for boot clamps and failed to install the snap-ring on the axle shaft (DOJ side) my axle shaft popped out due to not having a Snap-ring to hold it. Oh yes I found the snap-ring, it was bent and laying in the cup of the DOJ. I have now taken the DOJ appart and have a new snap-ring. I'll assemble the axle tomorrow along with installing it into the car.

You'd want '98-01 Forester springs for your Outback. And yes it will lift it 3/4" more about, and you can change the top hats to Forester ones aswell since they are thicker.

I need to get me one of those old Wagons and jack it up. I like the way that thing looks. Like the Outback too, but the Loyale is just a beast! Put a winch on one with some diamond plate steel bumpers and a set of roof lights I bet it could out-do every jacked up pickup or SUV in this town. Especially with some 31" super swampers under it, and a Camo paint job! :lol:

As for the pain on the Outback, is that truck bed liner or actually paint?
