I know how you got the original 2" but what did you do to add another 2"?

The Forester is lookin great! Much better with swampers on it.

the 2" I just added is the Scorpion body Kit and I installed it myself. Easy lift to install with good parts and instructions. the hardest part was getting the shift linkage adjusted right since I'm running an ea82 tranny and linkage. They didn't say anything about the shift linkage needing to be adjusted in the instructions.

suspension lift is modified struts done by Mudrat.

The lower rear of the front fender wells had to be hammered in to allow clearence of tires when wheels where turned sharp and suspension compressed. They now only rub on the control arm lift block when wheel is turned all the way.

How the Forester should have came! :drunk: Dual range, LSD front/rear, 4" lift, and full skid plates.

Can't wait to see pics of it on some sick trails. Just remember, chix dig body damage! :lol:

Amen!

Why they didn't do this in the U.S. is beyond me.
