Damn it, there were two late 90's outbacks at the Pick'n'pull I was at today, but both of them had their trailing link bolts completely rusted together so I couldn't get the longer brackets off

Forester Struts + top hats, WRX springs, Forester swaybar mounts (99 Outback trailing arm brackets on order, not currently installed)

Here is what it looked like before with the Megan Racing Coilovers:

Hey Kost, if I didn't know any better I'd swear your rear tires are centered in the pics you posted. Might have the tires too far rearwards with the Outback links and they'll never rub anyways (mine don't in my Outback and aren't centered and have had 250+ pounds in the back). Looks sic though!

Its not quite centered. The brackets will help out just enough I think, but more with the geometry and lateral link travel than the centering.

Not worried about looks anymore, more about utility.

i want it a little higher, but i dont know if i want to replace the springs with forester, so probably just top hat spacers in the future.
Engine and everything else: stock!
wheel plans:
1990's chevy astro van wheels(15X8 with zero offset). i'll need to get some adapters as well. and 225/75's either generals or bfg.

I don't know if I'd describe them as honey comb, but thanks. This fitment would normally be for jeep wrangler/for ranger

Yea, PA. The pink turned out as well as I had hoped, aside from a ton of runs I haven't had time to sand out. It will look a lot better when I get rid of the red seats and find some door panels that match the dash swap.
