    Digging internet long ago, I already had posted this on the Legendary "Strange & Weird Subaru Stuff" thread but Recently, I merged the info regarding the Subject, into one post. Kind Regards.
  2. Yes, you're right ... ... you're not contradicting me; I was telling that the 14" chromed wheels "Looked Like" those. I was searching among the web also on my photo collection, and As far as I found, Jackman Wheels came in 4x140 with 13" and 14" rim sizes, and the 15" size were a especial order that came along a lift kit for the first gen Brat, available thru certain dealers as special package; I couldn't find the complete info online; but was something similar to the "Special Editions" that certain Subaru dealers sold in the Past. I remember clearly to have seen Photos of a mustard yellow 1970's decade Subaru Leone Coupé, in the HIstoric gen Forum, that had 15" Jackman wheels; but the search button isn't working as it should. Also, my age old saved web links from the previous system that USMB had, are not working anymore, sadly...
  3. I love two-tone paint jobs but that's my own humble opinion.
  4. I have seen 4X140 Jackmans, but they're 15"
  5. The EA81 era's 14" wheels looked like the one pointed with the green arrow

    There's no need to trash anything. I know that there is no lift kit on your Subie, only new coil springs and shock absorbers. Somehow I told you that the Kia's coil springs are too stiff for the standard EA82 engined Subies; the Ford Tempo coil springs are the best bet; so, if you mix a pair of shock absorbers whose travel is longer / taller than Stock ones, with stiffer / taller coil springs, then the increased tallness will be too high and takes off the camber. But: if you like the Ride, you only need to be Sure that the added stiffness will not make you to loose control of the car in unpaved / bumpy roads; because a too stiff suspension might make the whole front to bump and loose direction. You can do test drives CAREFULLY on unpaved roads at slow speeds, Please be Careful. Aluminium is Better. There should be a way to place those Camber correction plates, as I've seen aluminium ones on EA82 Subies, before: Kind Regards.

    Other USMB members have successfully done installs of camber plates: https://www.rallysportdirect.com/part/top-hats/whi-kca335-whiteline-com-c-caster-camber-adjusting-strut-mount Kind Regards.

    Your Subie Looks Great, however the Kia Sephia / Spectra seems to be too much coil springs for the Subie, Because the Subie has an Aluminium Block, Head and intake, while the Kia has cast Iron Block, Head and both manyfolds... Kia's front coil springs are for extra heavy front... Those are ideal on engine swapped Subies plus winch, heavy bumper, etc... The Ford Tempo coil springs are a midway between both and might not push up the shock absorber too far high... Also, those shock absorbers that you used, has the longer travel that I've seen on a Subaru GL / Loyale Front. Do you have their part number? Good idea, you shall install camber correction plates if you want to keep that setup; but also the subie will need to raise a little more the rear. Finally you'll need to Drop the rear differential and the engine's crossmember to save axles. At this altitute should be needed an extension for the steering shaft and for the brake lines... Kind Regards.

    Welcome! ... ... That's Awesome!!! The 4x114.3 lug pattern is good, I'm running my Subie modified like that, since 1996 I found that Wheels from Nissan cars from same era, had the Proper Offset for the L Series; maybe you can find some appropriate wheels for your Subie among them. Kind Regards.

    Good !!! Share photos of your Subie with us, to see how tall it sits now. Kind Regards.

    How it feels the Front suspension, stiffer than stock but not way too stiff? The images are displaying alright now, Thank you for fixing them. Kind Regards.

    Appreciated Ionstorm66, the images are not displaying on the forum. I bet they're posted from a site that requires the viewers to be logged in. Regarding this: Such situation never happened with the various installs of the front Honda coil springs onto the front Toyota shock absorbers that I've done, not only for my Subie, but for a bunch on other ones and also, other fellow members from this USMB worldwide has done it without cutting a single turn from the coil spring nor having the issue that you describe. So, this makes me think that you used other Coil Springs, not the ones that I listed on my writeup. Here, a couple of photos from this same thread, as example: This is my setup, uncut coil springs has enough free space between turns of the coil, to allow a normal suspension behaviour, see: Also, NakedBuell shared this Photo of his install, see: You can see his post, here: So, if the turns of the coil springs were touching each other, it means that you used the Wrong coil spring, not the listed one. Unless something went wrong with the install... Kind Regards.

    Unless you used other Toyota Shock Absorber than the one I listed, I don't see any imposibilities, I've installed said Toyota Shock Absorber with Honda coil Springs several times so far, each time flawlessly, without the need of cutting anything. Kind Regards.

    Exactly! I Agree. I always suggested to obtain the coil springs Used, from junk yards, thus secures that they aren't as stiff as new ones, to compensate part of the increased rate of the spring; I've had better results with used coil springs rather than new ones; using them always uncut. Kind Regards.
