A lift kit FAQ would be a great addition to the USRM. I was in the process of making an article with instructions on installing a PK Lift, but only got the front done.

When i was a kid, I had a friend with a father who had a CJ7 with a lift, and he worked in a off-road vehicle shop as a mechanic. When i asked him if a Subaru could be lifted, he said no way, no how... boy i wish I was still in contact with him so I can prove him wrong.

That was the emptiest place I've ever been to. The Bonneville Salt Flats are more exciting than Wyonming. I know I'll never go there again if I have it my way.
Did you know it's the coldest State in the Continental US?
WCSS5 had at least one car from as far away as Indiana. 100 cars in all. . . or so.

It would seem to me that what we do to lift a sube is more like a suspension lift than a body lift. body lifts are for trucks that dont really wheel usually. just makes more sense to me that way. ok im ready for the:argue: .

It is a full fledged body lift as the suspension components do not go any where. The body is raised off of them. A suspension lift requires different springs (plus blocks in some instances)
The body lift does allow for larger tires in all cases. Which is where the extra clearance comes from.

I think you have a valid point, it is sort of a combination of the two because the frame is attatched to the body and it goes up as well. However, as much of a problem as people have grasping the concept of lifting a Subaru I like to keep the explaination as simple as possible.
