Got another 1.25" from 05 Forester XT Turbo wheels. So far rides great, we'll see how it all holds up.
Camera phone pics attached.

yeah, i know right? it's either me or the XT6, i can't figure it out
Wow, only one response on this post?
holding up great, it's my daily driver. doesn't drive as nice and cush, but i guess that's the nature of a lift. i like the height right where it's at.
So how is it holding up?

yeah, right around the time you were doing yours i think i asked you about orientation of the rears - outer or inner, something.
Huh, I don't even remember seeing this thread a few months go?
hmmm, maybe the XT6 is different, air suspension?, or i need to check something out?
As for a lift effecting how it rides/handels. I dunno my wagon seems to ride the same, better tires sure helped alot though

i believe because the trailing arm gets pulled "forward" when it's pushed down by rotating on that front mount, it's actually a front to back kind of angle which would compromise the metal to bend the mount that way. i'm sure there's some solution i just haven't messed with it yet.
you cant bend the mounts for the rear struts so they wont be on an angle and leak??

i used scotts.
What lift did you use, Scott or did Bill make you a kit?
Posted 02 December 2009 - 12:57 AM
i used scotts.
maybe the rear coil overs are more rough, i can't recall if it was like that with the air suspension or not. maybe i'll have to try those again, and yes i remember making my rears orient the same as yours.
i didn't install anything but strut extensions though so i've got nice angles on my front CV's.
