It feels about the same as my 1998 Legacy Outback, which is a great improvement over stock. I can't wait to take it throug some mud.

Does driving on your lawn count as "mild off roading"?;)

That looks pretty good. You must work in a sign shop or something.

Do those little wings on the fenders make it fly?

If I were you I might think of selling personalized stickers like that. I want one when I get my set up closer to complete! You have done good work!:headbang:

I can't really do that, but what I can do is give the design to one of the members running the site and they can make and sell them. (so the money goes to the board)

Update: Well everything seems to be running fine. I have developed a bit of a squeak in the through out bearing. A little annoying, but livable.

I need to rebuild the entire front end of the car though. Everything is loose and worn out. New wheel bearings, bushings, struts, ball joints, axles ect. I'm going to go through the whole thing. I guess after 24 years it's time and I don't want to keep patching crap together on it anymore. I also found out that Autozone is selling the ajustable struts now so that's way cool.

I do need a little help figuring something out. What can I do to fix the negitive camber in my front wheels? I though about having some small 1"-1.5" plates make to go between the crossmember and the frame, but that seems to be a big P.I.T.A. I was wondering if there is an eazyer way.
