my '98 Foz

Nice! Just out of curiosity, what did the King springs run? And they lift roughly 1.5" right?

 

about $430 set of four springs, 1.5" is correct.

Looks good! You upgrading the tires now that you have more clearance? Looks like plenty of space inside those fenders.

the rear was done using '03 SG struts, kings springs KSRR-33,

Paranoid fabrications 1" strut spacers(HDPE) '02-07 impreza. Note: some chamfering required to fit strut tops.

camber bolts from primitive Lower position..

 

Front lift is stock struts, king springs KSFR-32, primitive 1/2" strut spacers(HDPE) stacked.

 

I now have 12 1/2" at the pinch welds(factory jack up points )

11 1/2" rear diff.

9 3/4" at front skid plate.

 

I also swapped my cargo basket from the outback (temporary)

Looks good! How tall are your tires in inches?

 

They are stock tires 205/70R15

Mud terrains will be on soon enough..

Yeah I thought they looked a little small, so that makes sense. Those 27.7's would be real close to the rear struts, even with the SG rears. Mine measure a hair over 27.5 and there isn't much room at all. I'm sure with the right wheel they will be all good though.

Umm, YEAH!!!

 

Might need a camber kit for the rear too, looks a little caddywompuss.

Me thinks you may consider a touch of driveline lowing... Doesn't all that push you a touch over 2" greater than stock?

 

Looks awesome G! the tires are gunna be full sweet sickness!

What do the CV's look like? My Outback has 10" at the diff and the CV's look like their lives will be considerably shorter.

I just installed it with rear camber bolt as well ..I just head down to the alignment shop right after..

I just took the pics as I had just fin..the lift and it was around the corner of the shop..as the sun was setting...

 

cv's are not an issue...only at 3"lift will you have problems..All the aussie folks can verify on www.offroadsubarus.com

The driveline is at stock level.. the diff. hasn't changed it's relationship..only the cv's (I'll assume that's what you were addressing..)

my outback has the same lift of 2.5" and zero issues..for years now..

I immediately went through one front cv after my 2" lift, and now the other is making noise. Both factory Subaru axles too. Hopefully you have better luck than I did!
