1998 Outback Lift - Help me get get my facts straight?
Posted 14 July 2014 - 07:17 PM
-Forester Iron Man springs (Subtle Solutions)
-Forester 1" lift / strut spacers (Subtle Solutions)
-Adjustable rear trailing arms (Gorilla Off-road Company)
-215/75-15 All terrains or mud terrains, haven't decided.
I guess what I'm wondering is whether or not I'll be able to get this tall without any other modifications, if this wasn't my daily I wouldn't mind cutting and fabbing parts, but since it is I'd prefer this to be an entirely bolt on and go type of deal. Too much lift with the forester struts, lift springs, AND spacers? Or do you think it'll be reasonable. I expect a bit more CV wear I just don't want anything obscene.
Also, think that tire size is good or would I be able to go bigger?
Thanks in advance guys, I'm excited to get this going.

i personally went 2.5 over stock with my 99. i used a 225 70 16
many many miles, mo issues with oem cv's. rump roast-loads of ground clearance, rode like stock
i used a 2 inch spacer and h6 springs
nothing else required. it was jumped, wheeled hunted out of, used like no other

ya, sounds close. your front sway bar end links will be pissed. a good front axle wont have issues. have fun with it

Any fixes for the end links? I hadn't even thought about that. May just ditch the rear bar but I sort of wanted to keep the front since it's a daily driver.

yep- you can use machined aluminum endlinks for a wrx or sti

I've seen that there are sedan and wagon end links. Assuming I end up keeping the rear bar, would I want to go with the sedan or wagon links? I'd assume wagon, but you know what they say about assuming...
