Beach bashing a subaru, Advise wanted.
Posted 30 March 2005 - 04:05 AM
I'm looking at buying an 80's model subaru sports wagon with a few other mates to use as a dedicated beach mobile for stockton beach in nsw Aus.
I want to raise the suspension and put bigger wheels on it and skid plates and so on. If anyone can offer any advise or know of any web sites ( i haven't really checked this one) i'd be grateful

Skid plates are a good idea, most 80's subarus will have a basic sump guard which will be enough for beachwork. Make sure it has dual range 4wd, preferably with a 3.9 gear ratio. If it's just for the beach you might want to weld the diff up as well.
join www.ausubaru.com there's a few guys on there from the stockton area.
