BG on 31s....

Recommended Posts

saw this at Sno*Drift, and talked to the owner/builder quite a bit. It was finished the day before the event, and driven across the lower peninsula of MI to the event without problems. Cheers to them!

 

 

the recipe:

'96 LGT wagon

take the stock EJ25D, and add STi pistons and rods

then add a TD04 and associated intake/exhaust/IC parts

bolt it to the stock LGT 4.444 4EAT

add some 6" subframe blocks

some 6" strut top extensions

and some plates to extend the strut-knuckle connection about 2"

some 1.5" wheel spacers

and some 31x10.5" tires

 

 

as seen Jalopnik:

Super cool.

 

These pics make me think he needs either more lift.....or more zzz and more BFH

he said they had a little rubbing in the rear on the way out. so some trimming will be happening when they get home.

 

 

with a 2.5 turbo and 4.444s....yea. probably had some pretty good power.

I've been kicking the exact same idea for lower strut lift to run bigger tires.

How thick is the material you used on it?

 

he said 1/4". and that it was extremely tough.

i tried the same lift idea on the lower strut mounts on my outback wagon last night, i can do it, and even get the camber correct, but i would either need wheel spacers, or i would have to use some sort of fwd gm wheel, We tried one and it fit. With the Subie wheel, the tire rubbed the strut pretty bad.
