Hi guys.  Buddy got a 2016 crosstrek.   He wants to put a lift kit on it.


This is the model he wants to put on it.  Primitive Racing




 he wants me to put it on for him.  


Im a shade tree mechanic.  I dont have a lift or a spring compressor.


Anybody here ever tackle this?  




Is it difficult?


I messed with brakes and engine stuff, but never really fooled with suspensions before.


Any help is appreciated.

I kindly suggest you to obtain a Spring compressor, and get used to it, prior to do the removal of the coil springs, because it is very Dangerous to do it wrongly, the rest it pretty easy, like remove and install procedures.


Maybe you share here, photos of the Crosstrek, before and after the Lift.


in my own humble opinion, a lift less than two inches doesn't worth the effort...


Kind Regards.
