SJR vs ADF and new struts?

Recommended Posts

Any differences between the two, in the way of 2" spacers?

 

I'm wanting to lift my new 01 forester. I commute 115 miles a day, but need this thing taller Saturday/Sunday/Monday.

 

What struts would be recommended to go in with my spacers, after I jerk the old ones out?

 

Recommendations for a bolt on skid plate? I've had two close calls with the oil pan already...

Camber offsets are build in, ive had sevral people go in for an alighnment and not even need one. lol.

 

Stock struts are fine but if there wore at all, i would recomend replacing them with KYB GR2's.

 

I personly dont like king spings, they limit travle and are very stif for offroad... seen may cases when theyve causes broken struts and top hats.

 

hahahahah!! The title is killing me. :P

+1 for KYB's.

 

king springs seems silly, i'd never consider them in a 1,000 years.  wear item (i guess it's barely a wear item) and you can't easily keep them/move them to another vehicle when you move on from the vehicle.  i've had my SJR lift on at least 2 XT6's now - and maybe a third by the end of the year.

Where is the best place to order the kyb's?

 

depends.  amazon, rock auto, check shipping rates, ebay, and local chains can be cheap if you research online discount codes - buy online, pick up in store.

 

depends on your ability to maneuver through online coupons, shipping, and juggling the shipping juggernaut on rockauto.
