This is just step one, so I will be addressing more issues but just wanted to have a journal. Larger tires are still to come, alignment issues to take care of, trailing arm issues to take care of, etc.

05 Forester suspension, 2" higher than stock. The tires I'm getting will give me another half inch also.

Sundog, was it just the forester struts, springs, top hats, or was there more to it than that?

you will have to switch top hats I think, you should get ahold of dome24 since he also put Forester stuff on an older one.

the axel angles are good, that's why I didn't get the Jackson Rally lift on top of this lift.

So using the newer forester stuff doesn't stretch them as bad as the 98 stuff hum. Still kinda BA I was ganna get the outback hardware for my lgt but figured I haven't been stopped at stock height yet. Sad part is I'm lower with the sti stuff on. I wanna see a side by side comparison. It's really hard to just see how much life it is over stock by the photo's.

I love seeing lifted subies Lol

A light bar/brush guard is on the list, but first I have to fab up some new trailing arm mounts to push the tire back in the wheel well a little bit
