So are you saying the people in here don't know anything about Subaru suspension component interchangeability?

I'm saying this is a thread for Pictures of lifted subarus. If your looking for component interchangeability answers you should look in the suspension technical sub-fourm.

Already am. This thread moves faster though, and if I get some answers, then you'll obviously get some pictures.

No, this is a forum for just about anything. Rally cars, Lifted, and Dirty cars as well like the title suggests. A good Rally cross car is going to be lowered a bit. Who cares if he wants to ask about lowering. There are plenty of lowered cars that get dirty and muddy too.

I lifted my car 2 1/2 years ago and have only the stock camber bolts, and only have about 1/32 wear difference between the inner and outer edges of my grabbers. So I don't think a camber kit is must when lifting just max out your stock bolts and you should be fine.

while different part numbers I think 95-99 LEG springs are indistinguishable from 96-99 OB springs, so LEG springs in OB struts would NOT lower anything.

BUT WRX/STi springs in OB struts would lower, a bit after the OB struts lift, so you should be able to fit taller tires b/c of the strut lift and get batter handling with the WRX/STi springs, but you wouldn't be able to max out your tire size b/e of possible rubbing at lock-out with the body dropped back down from the IMP-based springs...

Is the rear sway bar on or is it that stiffl?
And is that a Currie anti-rock in the front?

what about the rear? you need a camber kit for the rear right? I was going to order one camber kit for the rear suspension when I read your post, now I'm on hold waiting for a reply on this!

The rear isnt swayed yet.. it will be soon though... the rear spring rates were set a bit higher to compensate for the stereo thats goin in it (big a$$ subs) it will stuff properly once the load it on it the t case and drive lines arnt even in it yet..

I have not been using any camber kits. My slight wear issue has been on the front not the rear. When I originally did the lift I maxed out both front and rear camber bolts and after checking the alignment after it was within specs just at the edge of it. So I left it.
