You may have to swap the rear top hats for yours but not positive.

I got my Forester XT set up from a local member that went low.

I was able to squeeze 215/65R-16 Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S on stock WRX wheels on my 02 wagon with Forester lift.

I had to trim just a little bit off the side skirt in the rear wheel wells since I did not use trailing arm brackets to recenter the wheels. Look for my post on Dirty Impreza for pics.

if you need them, get them. 1-2 MPG difference isn't going to break the bank

got it off of a peugot from the UK. Not even sure who made it. there are some gaps that i still need to figure out what to fill them with. other than that it turns night into day.

Hi i have a 99 Impreza obs 2.2l and would like to lift it up but cant find any information on how to go about doing this. i've heard putting forester struts on my impreza will give me maybe an inch and a half of lift. But is this true? or is there more involved? im looking for a total of maybe 3 to 4 inches of lift (if possible). whats the best way at going about this?

That's a lot of lift. Just be mindful that your car will handle completely different. Not that it won't be, but it will at least feel unstable in handling terms.

I've got about 3inches of lift total and my car handles fine. I have 1in JR spacers and 215/65/16 General Grabbers. It's been completely problem free and doesn't require any other modifications.

You can go with forester struts for a bigger lift, but it requires trailing arms and can possibly lead to some axle problems.

I should elaborate at higher speeds the car will theoretically roll more and possible slide more around turns do to a higher center of gravity. The roll can be reduced with stiffening up of the chassis.

no lift at all, AA was going to make one for the longest time but it never materialized, the Baja is an 06 so it is the tallest of all Baja's not even the after market lift springs will raise it at all. the cross members are already extended.

From all the reading I did you are most limited by the wheel well opening and with out rubbing on the back side of the fender you cant get anything larger than a 30" tire under there.

I no longer have her though, lost it in a divorce
