Default Saggy Butt Spacers

Sooooo, i bought some 1/2" saggy butt spacers for my 05, but i think that 1/2" would be too much now that i think about it, anyone have 3/8" or 1/4" and wanna switch?

Do you have to extend the studs for the 1/2" shims?

They add a spacer to raise the rear end as some suspension combos leave the rear sagging. This especially on wagons.

What's the biggest spacer you can use without extending the studs?

I think largest size without extending depends on application.

IIRC correctly, 1/4" without a strut bar, 3/8" without a strut bar.

Saggy Butt? you need these. These spacers will help level that saggy butt of your Subaru Impreza. These spacers go on top of your top hat and are sandwitched in between the body and the top hat. this works with the stock lenght studs.

so what you are saying is that if you add saggy butt spacers, than you cant leave your strut bar on in the back? i have a 1/4", a WL quick release strutbar on the back of my wagon, and i'm going to put sti take-offs on, so this is going to be a problem?

Should be fine, 1/4" isn't that much
