Getting my 2001 outback more adventure ready

Recommended Posts

I have a 2001 outback that i want to get more clearance on. i hear you can swap in forester struts from newer years that will give you about an extra inch or so and then add star spacers to get it higher. i just can't seem to find any information on it. 

 

is this the easiest way to get more clearance?

 

I'm driving to mainland mexico from washington state this summer and want to get my rig more adventure ready.

 

i want to get different bumpers as well.

any help would be killer!

 

thanks

Forester stuff won't get you much, if any.

 

 

I believe the accepted combination is 6-cyl front springs (assuming yours is a 4-cyl), and Baja rear for something like an inch and a half.

 

 

SJR makes a block lift kit for them, too.

thanks. would it be more worth it to just use a lift kit instead of doing the swap with the struts?

Get in touch with Anderson Design and Fabrication. Andersondesign-fab.com He builds Subaru lifts, and has done more of the newer than pretty much anyone. He's on here as well.
