I have semi quick disconnects on my swaybars, I replaced the bolts with dowel pins and keys. Pull the keys out, remove the pins front and rear, takes about 30 seconds - 20 minutes (takes a lot longer if you wait until after you go through the mud )

I wanted to post this here because this is about as much gravel/dirt as my subie sees, and if i dont post this then i may never get to post here. And yes that is masking tape on the back wheels in an effort to keep them from being beatup in the sideways action.

Does anyoneelse blow cv boots like crazy? I'm on my 3rd set in less than a year.luckily NAPA has a lifetime warr. I'm getting real good at changing them, the hardest part is the stupid retaining pin, I'm about to just start using wire ties instead. Are forester cvs longer than Imps? I'm running Forester struts/springs on my 97 coupe.

I know IFS trucks and SUVs have to be really careful about the CV joint angles when lifting, because CVs typically only have a narrow range of angles that they will work well in. This is an especially big concern with IFS vehicles that don't have disconnecting hubs (such as all our Subarus) where the CVs are always turning. They usually have to move the differentials down when lifting more than a couple inches to keep the CV angles in check.

I don't know what the axle lengths (or angle tolerances) are for the Impreza vs Forester, so I can't really offer any specific advice for your car. Though this does make me wonder what (if any) drivetrain parts were changed in between the Legacy and Outback, since the Outback sits significantly higher.

^^ i thought of that too..

i did a comparison once and the impreza and forester axles are the same with the same joints. so i think it should be safe to lift to forester height...

lift kits like the one on the hatch there is actually a 'subframe drop'. the entire drivetrain is lowered by however big the lift is so theoretically all geometry should be stock. but the extra height allows for bigger tires...

I'm pretty sure the outback is also just a "subframedrop" which I'd like to avoid if I can.

stock height in the outback vs. legacy comes from taller springs and struts. subframe drops are used in aftermarket kits...

if you want to lift beyond that without a subframe drop the only option i know if is king springs. google it. they are out of aussieland.

For the record the Outback has taller struts/springs as well as spacers in the subframes to even out camber/toe/driveline angles.


Nope, never blew a CV boot (or joint for that matter) but I did assplode a front differential (likely a combo of too much tq,extreme angles/big tyres and near 300k on a 4eat)
