Where did you get those wheels?  I really like them.

 

Also, is that a 2" lift?

AA (Alied Alignment) wheels I got from a board member. And it's a 2in lift with 205/70/15's But now it is in the hands of the new owner.

it looks like the front lift blocks are backwards... it shouldnt have that much positive camber.

I installed the boss lift the way it was written on the lift blocks. Driver/ Passenger with the arrows pointing forward. I double checked and thats what was written. The way I did it put the strut tops closer to the engine. I don't have the car anymore so I can't just go look but I am putting one on my new set up and I will try it both ways. Maybe it was marked wrong?

AA (Alied Alignment) ...

 

Not Allied Alingment (now that's Fun after seeing the Subie's Alignment)   :D

 

It is "Allied Armament"

 

Kind Regards.

Ha! Got it. Thanks. Well, she got a good deal and car regardless. I had not even got to wheel it with the new tires and wheels.(Probably a Good thing!) But I still get to wrench on it. I am showing her around the car by helping her fix some of the issues that persue after lifting said vehicle. Rear axel happened to go out on her almost a week after getting the car.boo. I gave her two front axels and a new exhaust with cats, and a spare motor with 90,000 mi and a blown head gasket.

She was also stoked to find the junkyard filled with parts she wanted. Cosmetically    I suggested to her to become a member and start a new thread on her improvements. Hopefully she will take over from here. Cheers.
