I've been really busy with school and work so i havent had much time to do any work on the subie. I found a good deal on craigslist for a set of 5 Jeep wrangler wheels for $100 so that is my next issue is making them fit. I ordered spacers from adaptitusa.com and they work but fender cutting and rolling is in order. Also started fabricating some of the front bumper, hopefully over spring break ill have a day or two to get some things done.





its starting to come together.
just need money and time

WOW, holy offset Batman!

I found this post ironic in that I recently used some adapters to mount STI rims on my Jeep and here you are mounting Jeep rims on your Subaru. I'd be a little concerned that those adapters aren't hub-centric though. You might suffer some vibration. Here are mine:

The adapters may be hub-centric to the car but they lack the spigot that would mate up to the hole in the Jeep wheels so the package is effectively not hub centric. It may not be an issue but the excess offset will likely exacerbate any mis-alignment in there.

I understand what your saying man. But so far i haven't had any issues with it. But it hasn't been off the pavement yet. With time it might act up or become slightly unbalanced but for now its all good.

see post 160
(http://www.subaruoutback.org/forums/...ack-wagon.html)

2000 and newed have a different rear suspension than pre-2009 foresters...
for a 2000 OB, look at outback H-6 or baja springs...
or lift blocks from subtle soultons or jackson rally.

I have a 1996 Subaru Legacy Outback. I just sold a Tahoe with 31's and a 3 inch lift. so as far as I can tell my outback is stock. I am wanting to ad some height to it, but I don't want to spend a lot of money and I kind of want it to be an easy job. Thanks

I gave the General Grabbers on my Tahoe, I will say they are just as good as BF

For a 96 outback AND simple, i would suggest loking for some gen 2 Forester struts. Likely plenty here on NASIOC from folks getting out of stock suspension. 2002-2008 forester strut assemblies (complete strut, spring and top hats) will be bolt-on and give your outback 2+ inches, allowing for taller tires (which would provide more lift. So with a 2002-2008 forester strut swapo and tires you'd gain 3ish inches ground clearance for 3 nuts and 2 bolts per strut.

+2 and with a slightly more open lug, they shed snow and mud better than the BFGs.

Yeah. All Outbacks use the same suspension '96-'99. I would recommend 1" rear spacers along with the Fozy suspension. You can get them through Subtle Solutions.
