Default Forester/impreza lift kit

I have been working on this for quite some time and have broken my back so I would rather see someone else use it. This is not a spacer kit for the top of the struts, it spaces the bottom of the strut up so you can actually fit an off road tire. All spacers for underbody and suspension parts are milled from solid billet. Strut spacers are 1/4 thick steel. This lift has been proven very effective and solid. Most people who have run this type of lift have used boxed tubing for spacers but I didn't want to worry about rust or cracks so I used billet. I have a ton of money tied up in this kit and will be taking a loss no matter what, but like I said I am tired of seeing it sit here and not be used.

What I have is............

Lift spacers for struts
Drop spacers for everything under car including swaybars
04 Forester XT struts and springs
04 Forester XT wheels with brand new Falken High Country A/T 225/75R16

You will need to get the longer bolts to finish the kit, Fastenal has all of them, I have already priced it out and it works out to be about 65.00 worth of hardware. I will get more pictures of the rest of the parts if interest is shown. Thanks in advance.




This is what it will look like installed.




And here is one on my actual car, just the front was done. That is sitting on the floor and the back was supported by jackstands. That gives you an idea of how high it will be. I could fit my head in between the tire and fender.

This is really cool how does it affect handleing I would do something like this in my impreza after outback struts but I wanna see how its gonna handle first with my current setup would this still allow for stock sway bars and all that?

Kit is spoken for, It should not effect handling that much, the biggest difference you are going to see is the flex in the tire sidewall.

Good point if I use a truck tire like Yokohama Geloander A/t-S that are meant for a heavy loads I wonder how much the sidewalls would flex much while cornering hard. I am going to put 205/70R15 versions on my car with outback struts front and back.

You won't notice as much roll as you would in a truck or SUV due to the weight of the car, and the fact that it is much less top heavy.

If you are interested in a kit like this one, please pm me, I may be able to have another one cut.

This is so sexy! I would love to see my WRX sitting that high. Anybody can slam a car but when is the last time you pulled up beside a custom and tastefully modded Rex shoulder high?!?! GLWS!
