HA funny that I found this thread, just browsing pics of lifted GL's on google and saw a picture of my car. I don't really care if it's too late too enter, just wanna share my car with people that want to see something that they don't see every day.

I have a 6" SJR XT Strut lifted 2000 OBS.

190k on the 2.2
waiting for winter and money to do a EA D/R tranny swap

Things break a lot. It broke on the way to WCSS this year so thats why you didnt see me. I want to make it more reliable so I might lower it a tad, and go with a less intense wheel offset! thanks for looking! All I have are Iphone 3 pics, sorry!

the pooparu




used to look like this!

2013 Forester XT Touring

Only modifications...
Rally Armor mud flaps
Primitive Racing 3/16" Aluminum skidplate
Cooper Discoverer AT3 235/60R17 tires
Removed front sway bar, disconnected rear sway bar

I was looking for a replacement for my 2007 Civic coupe. I wanted something with 4 doors and a little bit of ground clearance. At first I was looking at the XV Crosstrek because of the fuel economy, but on the other side I was checking out the WRX because of the power. The WRX only came in a manual, the wife couldn't drive a manual. The XV was small and underpowered. I already spent five years in an underpowered Civic, I didn't feel like doing it for another five. I do some skiing, camping, and general outdoor activities. The XT was the perfect fit for me.

Absolutely no sway bars connected in these pictures:

Not really, they were my temp wheels from old street setup before they were stolen sold and then found and returned!






Had to extend the rear frame holes for the foz hats before the camber plates. Fronts fit fine but we didn't need em.

I like the pre-lift look.

As a side note, I need to get a loadwarrior.

There is WAAAAAY too much awesomeness in this thread. I had my car lifted once. I was rolling on stock wheels 215/55 general grabber at2 tires, lifted on King Springs with KYB struts, skid plates, bedliner and the works. All on an 03 wrx sedan, aspen white. Now I'm lowered on coilovers, track tires, blue assetto garas, COBB sway bars, kartboy endlinks, tons of UR bushings etc etc but I still have my mudflaps I really want to grab a GL wagon or a fozzy to lift to high heaven. Maybe even a 91 justy 4wd

I bet they're waiting for more entries. Or they forgot

Wheels are 15x7 and tires are labeled at 27x9.5 but are actually bigger in both dimensions. I never measured accurately by how much, though

So I'm finding this thread waaaaaaaaaaay late in the game, but thought I'd join in the fun. Here's my story about Otto, the German named Japanese Import to join my American car fleet in 2004.

I have been AutoX'ing 1G Neons since early 1999 and done a few RallyX's in one of them in 03 prior to WRX ownership. While I love them as a front driver, they lack in all wheel drive fun (all but the Subaru swapped AWD Neon my friends and I built-but thats a different story for another time).

So in mid 04 a close friend bought an 05 STI new, and took me for a ride. I was hooked, but since I already had 2 little cars that didnt have a whole lot of space, I knew I wanted a wagon. Test drove a few used ones and a new one once and knew this was the car for me. Did some online shopping, and found a silver 02 on autotrader.com in a small town where an old friend lived, who also had a silver 02. Emailed him, only to find out that it was NOT his car, but that his was for sale for the same price and less miles. So in July 04 I picked the car up and its been a blast ever since. I got the stock springs off the 05 STI friend's car, which lasted a year or so until my stock struts were done. Then I picked up some AGX/Prokits from Primitive, which really worked well. A skidplate was a must since RallyX'ing a lowered car can be detrimental to oil pans. I went through 2 sets of studless snows by driving to and from events, and in snow/ice only. Other than that the car lived on 5 spoke gold RS wheels like many of us think is the only way to go. Then in 09 the AGX's were all but dead, and we were threatened with "the worst winter in over ten years" (which by the way, never happened)...but I digress-figured it was time for a change. Picked up some 05 FXT takeoffs, bolted them on, bought some adjustable rear trailing arms to recenter the rear wheels only to have the heim joints go out in the first 1000 miles-cut those off and welded on the stock rubber bushed joint (that was a trick without melting the rubber). Now the car rode so cushy that I've often wondered why I didnt raise the car sooner. I'm still running the rule breaking Cusco swaybars, but its ok-I love to three wheel (interestingly enough, its often the front inside tire that lifts in hard cornering). Car still ran 13.9@97 lifted on snows, averaged 22mpg mixed aggressive driving, and was a total sore thumb at car events. Then last year those tires were finally dead, so I thought I'd upsize finally. Landed a set of GoodYear studless snows (which were only sold in Canada I later found out) at a junkyard with nubs still on them, offered $200 and they let me have them (215/65/16). So now I'm about 11.5" off the ground at the lowest point, and the car eats potholes for lunch without hurting my L4/L5 herniated discs post surgery.

...or at least it did until the WCSS15 Mudpit this year. After 4 or 5 runs of over a minute or two each, Otto developed an engine knock. Fearing rod bearing failure I did what any sane person would do-and I ran across the mud one last time, and parked in camp. Loaded up my gear the next morning and drove the ~45 miles home. Then out to a friend's house to pressure wash the bottom, and then back home so thats now ~55/60 miles since the mudpit. The knock never got worse, nor did it go away...so until my budget allows, Otto is sadly parked. Planning a 2.5 or 2.3 hybrid build later this year into next year. This has been the roughest fall/winter since buying him in 04.

Over the years, Otto has been great at towing my Sandrail to the beach, hauling quads to the trails, even moved my dad's 22' cabin cruiser around the driveway once. I've hauled many interesting items on the roof including but not limited to a Miata's hard top, 17' canoe, 15' row boat, and lumber. First Japanese car to ever come into my family, and the only one who will be staying until there isnt enough car to put back together if bad things happen.

Well, I just retired my 98 IOS. After reading this thread, I think I'm going to go get it back. Perhaps there's another chapter to be written after all.

You people are nuts. I think I'm going to join you.

I would really like to get that kind of body lift going myself, absolutely beast.

I believe I purchased the tires from Summit, but with all the orders I make everything kind of blends in the long run
