Oh the joy of grinding calipers, fun fun! You can go that route, run 16"s or go for a 53mm offset 15" rally wheel like Speedline, OZ or Compomotive. Glad that wasn't a problem on my '97.

The car is looking good though..for a BH

A dual range tranny would round out the package nicely...

Have definately taken it in spots only Jeeps can go...

Too bad you guys are so far away...
What offset rims are you using for this setup? Have a customer wanting to do this but I am wondering if there are any rubbing issues.

On the 15"s (215/75/r15) I was running stock '94 Legacy turbo wheels which have the same offset as a stock '97 OB wheel. On the 16"s, not quite sure what the offset was, probably between 40 and 53mm, as they cleared with no issues.

Hope that helps..

Actually have the car in at the moment (from the new owner) getting ready for an STi shortblock and cometic headgaskets.

The 1995 Outbacks had no suspension lift, they were basically just a Legacy with foglights and some gold body cladding, beyond that they were no different. But I believe you could fit anything for the 1996-1998 Outbacks.

my fault, its a 96, sorry guys.

i want to do a drop, no lift, any body mods, sub frame connectors, brakes, exhaust, any i plan on modding the 2.2, new internals, etc... and a custom turbo. but i cant find anything on the internet for it. btw its not a impreza sport, its the outback, but i guess its called legacy outback.

Anything Impreza of a similar year (GC) should fit suspension-wise. As for turbo, maybe a WRX swap is the way to go. Cheap & reliable and it's been done before, a lot.

Hondaslayer,

going to lift my friend's OB this week. Pretty much same specs as yours. One question: how did you handle the alignment post-lift? Will it still align to stock specs?

Alignment?






In all seriousness though I adjusted camber as far inboard as it would go and set the toe to 0.0 front and rear

That would be the beard. The wife is smiling nicely with the dog posed next to her. You've got the crazy deliverance backwoods look with your dog trying to get away from between your legs.

She had time to posed with the less squirrely of the two dogs, I had to setup the camera, run over, try and turn the camera shy dog around etc....

As for the crazy deliverance thing, well, you know me

As for the beard, I think I am about 2 weeks away from achieving a perfect Grizzly Adams
