    LED light bars

    ive got a 2ft light bar on my rig i mounted the switch on the grill and i only hook it up to the battery when i need it i also have 4 low powered leds in the bumper pointed low 2 out to the sides a bit and 2 straight ahead those are on a switch on the inside the fog lights are about as bright as the headlights and alot bluer and easyer on the eyes tban a tipicle led light bar so not much chance of blinding anyone with them but they light the side of the road also work good off road when im following someone i have some 6" led mini light bars im installing inside the hood scoop on the impreza for exploring the desert at night

  7. I think your only gona get coil bind with the fwd struts ive never noticed it with 4wd struts or the nissan 300zx struts i did blow the purch off of the fwd ones the only way that happens is if the coils bind

    Simple Lift 88 GL Wagon

    Sjr has been building lifts for a long time im sure he can hook you up with a kit that includes the extended steering link thats realy the way to go your not going to find a better lift outhere but your gona pay for that bolt in kit he did the engineering and testing for you if you choose to try building it for your self its not hard but anything over 2" is gona need more than just the strut spacers and thats were the engineering comes in you can do alot of damage with a poor lift kit so do your homework the 2" lift is easy and simple and wont kill your rig if your off alittle remeber you get lift from the tires too so a 2" lift with 27" tires will net you 4" over all

    Simple Lift 88 GL Wagon

    No it still rides in the same position on the strut as it did before the lift your not changing the waight of the rig and the spring dosent change so there is no reason it would max out your suspention a spring lift dose maxes out the suspention not a strut lift the 2" lift is the most comin lift around for subarus if you did want to do a spring lift u can use ford tempo springs i have a 12000lb winch on the front of my rig i used the progressive springs from the ford tempo they work great they will give you a very stiff ride if you dont have extra waight on the front end the controle arms have plenty of room to droop out its the cv axles that limit your lift not the suspention it self the big problem with the strut only lift is your axles do were faster not a big deal on a wheeler but it sucks for a daily driver The rear of the rig you can use honda springs for a 2" lift but that will again put you at the top of your traval unless you add more waight alot of people go that route it hadles realy good too you can also use the fwd rear ea82 struts for a 2" lift in the rear and it wont change the spring rate or were the car rides on the struts so you would keep your 50/50 bias of the stock strut as it was made for the rig i am using nissan 300zx front struts with stock springs on the rear of my rig they retain the 6" of traval but uses a larger diamiter rod so it dosent bend as easaly as the stock strut shafts do and its made for a vary heavy turboed rig so the damping is better than stock also i beat mine till the body failed then i redesigned it and then life happend and i wasent anywere i could work in it or run it but thats gona change soon as im finnaly gona move in to my house and finnaly have all my stuff in one place and be able to work on my rigs and test them and break them and rebuild them again and again

    If you can weld its easy to do a 4" lift but if you cant weld then stick to the 2" lift and a sawsall with all the other limitations of this platform you wont get alot more performance by going any bigger and at 2" you wont need to mod the steering ether any more than 2" the axle shafts hit at full extention so you have to drop the engine crossmember and mod the steering to get the axles to clear
  13. So i am putting together another ddd rig i pulled my loyale off the road due to to many questionable parts and untested designs and i just dont want to risk it on th3 road i have a 3.9 duel range and a 4.11 outback trans and diff and a forester 4.44 set up the forester is going to be the doner rig the outback is getting a new trans also im planning on running around 30" tires and some bumpers and what not i also have a 2000 2.2 to port and polish and mod out for the imp it should be a great daily driven desert runner i have to traval around a mile through the ohv park to get to my house so i need something that can take the woops at speed cross big sand canyons and dry creaks and light rock running day in day out and thats just getting to town my big truck has a problem getting stuck all the time some times 3 times a trip not a big deal but time consuming and it burns alot of gas just running to the store the plan is to swap all the suspention from the forester use the 15" rims from the outback and swap the trans for better gear ratios i probably wont lift it any more.than just the forseter parts to save gas inshould be moving in to the new house in a month or 2 so i should have plenty of room and time to finnish all my builds like my loyale and the outback and my scout and the imp lol i dont wan5 to move the forester so its off to the crusher unless some one wants it with out its suspention its engine or trans the body is still solid and in good shape there wasent any rust or dents last i looked at it full leather interior too it was just a horable off roader and i dont want t deal with it anymore

    Road Trip Repairs, Exhaust woes

    If you were in deep water it is posable your timing belt sliped a tooth the belts arent real tight on the pullies so water can get between the pully and timing belt kinda like hydroplaning ive had that happen before its a easy fix if thats a issue
