Just get a complete trans from Australia. The smaller displacement Foresters have a dual range internal gear box set up much like the old Brats. Should drop right in.

My outback is going to be lifted with H6 springs1/2"/subaxtreme strut lift 35-40mm and a factory baja body (1" liftspacers")

It will make my outback ready for serious offroad. here's a
pic before the lift.
Where did you get that very sweet pushbar?

I just recently got my OB stuck in a ditch and i bet anything i would have gotten out if 3 wheels were turning instead of 2. How did you go about finding your LSD??? Junkyard? I definetely do not want to spend the $800 something that isr is selling them for. Thanks!

Rally Stuff lift in progress!

I'm half way there! I lifted the back with King springs Ksrr-29's about 40min r/r. before height at factory diffguard was 7 7/8" after was 9 3/4" ! Nice springs too beefy! 25% stiffer & nice yellow color! I have a raked look for now and the handling is much tighter! I'l post pics when done.

I'll get the fronts(KSFR-32) done soon and an alignment as well and full road /offroad test.

You can get a used one from a parts yard from a 00-01 RS w/ axles for less than $400 usually. Other rear LSDs are out of 00 up Outbacks with cold weather pkg or Ltds, H-6s, LL beans, VDCs, or 00 up Foresters w/ cold weather (S, S premium, XS, XT). Make sure that the gear ratios are the same. If your car is manual, you have 4:11s which are pretty easy to find. Autos have 4:44s for the most part. Hope this helps...

Halfway there.. what happened a half rack?? You'll notice a nice difference off road when you get the fronts on. King makes a good product for sure.

Rally Stuff update on lift

I ran outta time to do the front(family) . So last night I started on the front. I took one strut/spring apart only to find the spring retainer was larger in dia. than the King spring.........Doh!

So today I went to the dealer parts and we found a forester spring retainer/rubber seat(on order) so hopefully tommorrow night I'm fully lifted!!

Talking clarification

I was refering to clearance from stock(2" higher) I went from 7 7/8" to 9 3/4" clearance. Measurements were taken at rear diff guard and front(primitive skid plate)

I am also considering putting a 2 inch lift on my OB. However, i am concerned about losing the down travel. Have you ever had a problem with the suspension fully extending too early? Also do you know if this will effect any other part of the suspension/drivetrain since it is not in the normal, stock resting position? It is pretty important that i have a suspension that will keep me on the ground because i drive pretty fast on frost heav happy Vermont roads. Thanks alot!

sounds more like a tire problem with frosty roads......get some blizzaks! By the way the suspension is much better lifted due to a stiffer spring, no pitch and roll gives you more traction in corners. as far as down travel goes it really won't affect it until you unless your gettin big air(rally style)! I mean you don't have a rally car or do serious 4 wheeling do you? I personally think the springs make the car handle like a sportscar than a rolly polly wagon. you feel everything under you which is good . Makes your car more dependent on your tires, in wich case get better ones!
