All of the kits utilize geometry corrected, angled blocks for the strut tops.

 

4 inch and 6 inch kits will use 2 inch and 4 inch subframe blocks respectivly. This will improve overall ground clearance from stock by 2 inches.

4 inch kit = $700 plus shipping ( 4"strut tops and 2" full subframe blocks)

I am looking forward to the new webpage!

 

I am curious if you have considered making 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch leveling spacers for the rear struts for those of us who tow with our 2000+ Outbacks (or other models)

 

I recently installed King Springs for the increased stiffness and higher ride height. The springs provided a 1.5 inch lift. A small strut spacer would be great for King Spring owners that want a little more with or without a body lift as well.

Is the website operational yet?

 

I'm stoked to see lifts for my generation of car! Have you installed any of the 6" kits? I'm wondering how the suspension/steering components/axles hold up...

 

Do you know what tire size will work on 2000-2004 Outbacks with your lifts?

 

 

 

 

WOO HOO!

Lifts still available.

 

I could make a spacer for the rear of the 00+ outbacks to lift the rear end.

 

PM me for any requests, info.

 

Lifts are available for all models, in any size.

 

Since I don't have an unlimited amount of cars to experiment with, I can't tell you details of tires sizes, etc.

 

But the Two inch lift on the 03 Outback H6 has not caused any driving issues. taller lifts will drop the subframe relative to the tops so should be no issue. (these new ones aren't rally much different than the old ones overall)

Wow, that is sweet. That's a pretty inexpensive easy way to get a 2" lift. Now there's a quick recommendation to make for that gen when a new person asks! I wish that'd been out a couple years back when I put in King Springs.

 

Here's a comparison pic for reference in case it helps someone see the difference later. This is a '00obw with new KYB GR2's and KS lift springs. The lift from the blocks in the pic above appears to be easily a couple inches better. http://www.porcupine73.com/pics/gallery/obw001-lg.jpg

A note to all those interested in HighGuys kits.

 

We have a passion for lifting Subarus. But however much we love it and dedicate to it, this is not our daily work. It is a side project to help fellow enthusiasts. We have family's and job's and the lift making must come in between those times.

 

Due to our small batch manufacturing, and the part time nature of this venture, we ask that you allow 2-4 weeks for shipping when ordering a HighGuys kit.

**This only matters if you are still producing these. **

 

What is the turn-around time from payment to shipment for a 2" kit? I would like to purchase one for a Christmas present.

 

Thanks

I was wondering if you guys are still making and selling lifts for second Gen outbacks. I hope you still are since you are the only one's I can find that does the steering shaft extensions. thanks
