they make the plastic insert for it that isn't angled at all so im just wondering if I fab em up should I make em straight or angled, For the back I'm pretty sure I will just make straight ones.

Your going to want them angled in the back too or you will end up with positive camber. You should also look into getting some outback or forester struts for your Legacy they have a higher spring perch to give you more clearance for taller tires. Brads you pull in Redmond might have some I've gotten struts there for about $20 each with springs.

Hi all, I finally found the tube lift info from Markus56, I have an 86gl sedan that I want to lift. What is done for the rear lift? Is it the same as posted using the bolt under the rear seat to raise it? Thanks for any info. Will post pix when it happens.

Do you need some kind of spacers and is it difficult?

I just lifted mine this way. The rear is very stiff now. Should I take the pre-load off of rear control arms to soften ride? Some vibration on accel but understandable with new driveline angles.

Hi, I´ve got loads of 2,4" (6cm) tube for free and thought i could make this sort of lift from that, would that difference to the 2" be significant for the axle wear? This loyale 3 gen. i have is my daily driver so I don´t want to hugely risk popping cv´s just at this point. I think i could shorten the tube to that 2" but of course it´s a lot more work and structurally maybe not the best thing... Oh yeah and at what angle are those lift rear plates?

PS. this is my first post and thanks for all the great info.

When are we lifting my subi Jeff? If I can find some 14 inch wheels for it I plan on running 27-8.50-14 maxis bighorns, this is my dd so I will need the slanted blocks to help the camber!


Oh yeah this is Zac from les Schwab!

Under your rear seat in your car there should be a little plug in the middle, if you pull that off there is a 19mm bolt if you tighten that all the way it will pick up the back of your car, I don't know if you've done this before or not, but I'll keep going with this. anyways, If you put 2" blocks in the front and your torsion bars up all the way up in the rear, it will sit flat and about 2" higher, we did this with my buddy mikes rig and this is what it looks like

Again there is no lift in the rear just the torsion bars and 2 2" blocks on each side in the front.

That's a nice easy way to lift it and not put any extra stress on the rear axles of the EA81's

Hope that might give you a bit of an Idea for a little lift!!

would that same bolt be in the ea81 brat 86?
