Short video of my forester on custom coils and 16x10 diamond racing steelies. Have plenty of pictures if anyone is interest thanks!

backpacker on Vimeo

more info on these "custom coils" please, and whatever else you've done to the suspension.
What size tires are you running, and what offset are those steelies?

Are you on subaruforester.org?

importology lip with a replica lip underneath.

I completely dig it and would like to do a similar setup on mine

mine on ISC N1 coilovers. 25 inches ftg
trying to figure out a good setup for wheels right now so excuse it's ugly state
projected set up is to be 18x9.5 +20 on 225/40 tires

The coilovers were made using impreza struts and Honda civic sleeves and coils (the sleeves slide rite over the strut and dont move at all. I made new top hats for the rear to lower the car about another inch and a half and raised the strut mounts under the hood in the front to do the same. Sub frame spacers were removed to help with axel binding (which did wonders) but no roll-center kit yet so steering is a bit off geometry as far as caster angle. Lots and lots of cutting were needed to fit the wheels (I know ive lost sleep over it). The whole car was lowered for about 60 dollars and rides quite well, though this method obviously destroys factory struts quickly. The rims are 16x10 et+25 and tires are 205/55/16 for a great stretch.

Additionally I am not on said website, I was looking for a more forester friendly website but have not joined any as of yet.

This may not be the place to post suspension pictures but felt it may be helpful in visualizing what I have just explained.
