For the rear, use the XT springs on the RX shocks. Thats about 1.5 inches.
edit: Geez, look at how the RX's have the beefed up suspension! No wonder my spripped RX handles just so right going really fast down any road!

Notice any difference in the handling of the Rx with the XT springs in the back?
I ask because a softer spring in the back will supposably cause a bit of understeer.
Would love to get the rear of my RX down a bit with this swap, just trying to cure the tire eating understeer.
I've got a set of GR2s waiting for install in the rear. Maybe they will compensate.
My front tires thank you for your response.

Lowering the front got the camber to zero on the front...then it traveled to the negative 0.5 range. Excellent handing....but the springs were too soft. I'd love to get some extra RX springs and cut them properly. That would be massive.

what is this? is it easy? is there something that makes it undesireable for off road use? Just wondering why everyone is cruising around on pugeot wheels if you could put some 5 lugs on there.

5 lug is hard to come by, we use the XT6's for the donor parts, as the XT6 is a hybrid car, of hitech EA82T stuff and legacy parts. I dont think anyone has relly tried to use any striaght up Legacy or impreza parts tho... Pugs are hard to find, if there were an easy way to use 5 lug, then everyone would be doing it...but pugs seem to be easy'er...just bolt on after you find a set. Some ppl have used 6 lug wheels redrilled.
I DID find some one in OZ that had redrilled hub on his RX to use some kind of common 4 or 5 lug wheels. But i dont remember anything else about him or the car....
