To: Wagonist: Thank you.
"The radius rod goes through a plate which also holds the front gearbox crossmember. These need to be spaced down also."
Okay. I have been learning that I also will need to adjust the five speed gear shifter, and the stick that attaches to the transmission and shifts into/outof four wheel high and low. I'm going to guess that by 'front gearbox' you mean transmission. (hmmm. I have a transmission in the front and a rear differential in the back as far as I understand and see). So I am aware of lowering the transmission (or gearbox) crossmember, and I looked at the bolts to do that, but it sounds like you are also saying there is also a plate there which the radius rod goes through that needs lowered. Its late and dark at the moment, but I will look that over tomorrow, examining this radius rod and plate to further understand what you describe.
P.S. every time I am searching, I am finding the best equipment on Australian sites. I was looking at these beautiful custom bumpers with an outward swinging tire mount and another outward swinging jerrycan mount. Much like I had been fantasizing building for my car. Also lots of custom bumpers, racks, lights, etc. It seems like there is a good group of Subaru enthusiasts there.
