1990 subaru loyale 3" suspension lift?
Posted 28 March 2011 - 02:56 PM
Does a suspension lift change the camber that much if any at all? Does any one know what the degree cut would be for a 3" lift rectangle tubing so it dosnt change the camber? What ive come up with was a 21.5d?
how much does a lift increase the tip rate? or decrease the distance between the two front tires?
Im looking for more clearance under my Subaru for this summer, not really wanting to run larger tires as it will kill my mpg, but if it comes to that what, are a good size tire for terrain?
thanks, anything would help! kinda new to the Subaru world, but im lovin it so far!

Your axles will be at so steep an angle, they will hit the control arm mount of the crossmember.
You could perhaps get away with just blocking down the subframe 1-2 inches, and going 3" on tops.

I've judiciously searched the forums for this information but couldn't seem to find it...

Don't lift the corners if you don't lift the center bits as well, there are a bunch of guys that make some good kits, listed in the Offroad FAQ, for most of us it's been money well spent, and someone has already done all the hard work for you.

if your not set on 3" you can run 2" suspension lift on a EA82 for a long time without too many issues.And a 2" suspension lift does add clearance even if you don't run bigger tires.it raises the crossmember up 2".
a 2" suspension lift on an EA82 has like 8 total pieces. 6 2x2 sections for the front struts and some flat stock for the rear..

Those issues however are eating axles like candy, yum yum. Lift it right the first time.

EA81 with a 2 in suspension lift eats axles like candy.Ive always heard that the EA82's could take that sort of angle much better,and that a 2" suspension lift on an EA82 was fine.
they cant. my ea82 2inch lift made brand new axles sound like they were like 10 years old and pretty much ruined them the 5-10 miles i drove before dropping the crossmember. if you do a 2 inch suspension or body your axles will squirt grease everywhere and self destruct unless you at least drop the crossmember. its very easy and alot cheaper than new axles.

Most of the kits come with 3 inch blocks in the center and 4 inches in the corners, Its a good compromise between getting extra clearance in the center, and not eating axles.

You may know everything though I honestly do not. Any question I ask is with good intent, and if you feel upset by something I have said I apologize. Though, I will continue to make comments and ask questions as I see fit. If you would like to answer them I appreciate it, if not who cares? lol
