The OBS, taller with a Forester mod

Recommended Posts

Are you working the strut magic here, too?

The other post. I added Outback struts to make room for taller tires. 205/70/15s. Looks like I can fit 205/75/15s. Just have to figure out a skid plate.

What do people run (like subiegal and such...) its either prodrive or primitive skid plates... the ones that cover the WHOLE bottom... though with your suspension dropped more I wonder if it will still clear everything... I imagine it should still... (if It can take an airborne rally car)

You're looking for the word "Primitive" maybe? I plan on one. They have a burly thick one I plan on using.

How about now? 9 inches even under the Y-pipe and rear diff. Whoohoo!

NICE!!

 

I'm down with the low-cost factory lift of outback struts!!

 

Fit some bigger tires under there too, and get a touch more... I think i'm at 9 at the cat too, and maybe 9.5 at the rear diff??

 

Are you thinking of higher (after recovering from the strut swap blow $$)?

check out this impreza (for inspiration)

I got the struts for a good price, did the swap myself. It wasn't such a big blow at all. :)

That imp in the link you sent me has been my inspiration for years.

I'd actually like to add some taller springs in the rear. A lift kit is not out of the question either. :brow:
