1998 obs, just cut the bumper today, and the lift is relatively new, but definitely helps with the sand/gravel beaches that i used to get *almost* stuck in


05 forester KYB struts

stock 15s with 215/75r15 open country at2


cut bumpers, full legnth header and thule are the only mods, planning onboard air with trainhorn, some perimeter lights,  roof platform with canopy, and probably some strut top spacers or springs to get a tad more lift.


on a similar note, can anyone explain this? started at 7.3" to the rear diff. lifted it and was at 9.3. put 2.8" taller tires on it and drove it 2 days, and its at 10.1. shouldnt the 2.8" taller tires add 1.4" of additional lift?
