What about the springs, that's what makes them high.

my lift is home made - the guy that original did everything is on this forum - but the rig has had a lot of changes - but now it has some electrical issues - I fixed a few (major ones) - but it also has some suspension issues 2 - the driver side is up higher than the passenger side - not sure the problem - but haven't really looked @ it either - but I am pretty sure - I have the ONLY lifted Subie in Delaware - so not 2 many people I can talk 2 - but this weekend (1/17) - heading to NJ to go on a off road adventure - so I can talk to some other Subie Nuts - I also own a '06 WRX but I don't take that off road - its a little 2 low (2.5" drop) - but now I have my Loyale 4 off roading fun

Dude, I have a Motor Scooter in my yard. Ran fine but I popped the rear tire and couldnt get a new one. We could strip it and use it if you want. :)

Well im back after quite the absence...I could not log on for the longest time so i just gave up and then one day sent like 10 request to the admins to fix my account, so they did and im here again.

This is the evolution of my car, it was nice when i got it, but i believe it was offroaded before i got it and also overheated so it doesnt run right, well at least i think haha.

Stock when i got it...

Some super rusty pugs that never held air right....

How she sits today. All ive done is horribly wire the lights in and got a set of brand new falken snow tires for free! But she runs good for the most part. Maybe one day i will actually let it leave the city limits :lol:...

Has this wagon been around for a while, I was up at EC about 3 years ago with some of the members of the board and a wagon that looked just like that came up and met us right up by the pic area looking at Rainer.
Maybe I'm wrong but I was just wondering.

Jeff, I've owned this car for about 7 years and I lifted it about 5 years ago. My brother Brian used to live near Qman and we bought a used lift that came off his hatch, then built another one so we could both lift our '81 wagons. And yes that was probably me at EC, my car would have looked something like this. Jesse
