From what I saw Friday night, you need as much of both as you can get. That or you need to learn to shut it down and call the cavalry earlier. You also need to post your pics b/c your car was an EPIC level of muddy that you just can't get anywhere besides some place that you have no business being.

So I just put 02 Forester struts on my 95 impreza. The rear springs and struts seem to be rubbing on the chassis...anyone else have this problem? I used the impreza top hats also.

I massaged the inner fender where the spring cup is really close to the outer trunk wall with a air hammer.
I dunno if that makes sence but I can take a pic if you want.

Yeah I'd like to see a pic of your work if your down to post one up. Did it take alot of hammering to get enough clearance?

I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned the strut contact issue before.

It might be because most of our applications are different. Forester struts swapped into an Impreza is the general lift technique, but the year/model of Impreza makes the variance in fitment.

So I don't have a pic of the inner fender but it's really easy to figure out. Jack up the car and pull the tire, look at where the spring sits into the strut and how close it is to the inner fender. Note the area that's prolly already scrubbed a bit, pull the strut all the way out (or just out of the way if you think you can get at the spot) and pound it out with your bfh of choice. Be careful not to punch through by spreading the love around the area.

I do have a pic of another area that I had to trim to make the tire fit because of the caster issues from the linger strut.

I fit my 215/65/16 on stock suspension but they did rub alot. You could probably eliminate alot of that with a 1 inch spacer. I never measured my stock ride height but my pinch welds and rear diff sit at 11inches right now. Thats with the 215/65-16 and a forester lift. Let me know what your ride height is I'm actually kinda curious.
Just did alittle research. A 215/65-16 overall diameter is 27.00 in, a stock 205/55-16 is 24.87 in. So you gain about an inch in just the tire difference.
