^ Gabe that Outback looks SIC !!! Only suspension mod is the spacers? What's the height of your pinch weld, 12"? Do you rub at all?

those look great! I think it may be the first gen 3 OB I've seen mildly lifted, of coarse there's Superu's on subaruoutback.org, with 2" spacers AND kings (awesome)! ....

I AM DIGGING THIS THREAD!!!! Never know there was a following like this for lifting Outbacks. I was just thinking to myself it may be beneficial to lift the Outback for when the snow comes around.

kind of an old thread but an amazing one at that! i am looking into lifting my 98 outback (yes its had the engine rebuilt so no blowing my gaskets! thank god!) so i am about to start looking for some SG suspension. now my only concern is people keep saying you should get the strut spacers to go in the rears, why is this? what are the cons to not having them? does it add camber wear or something? or does the back end just sit a little lower? right now i dont have time or money for suspension and new tires (i drive 195/60R15 goodyear assurance tires (the mid size car version of the forterras)) and my tires are in awesome shape and handle in snow like no other, so, my question is, can i safely get and install SG suspension without the spacers and not end up breaking my car? lol im really in need of this lift, right now i am driving on 95 legacy suspension, and stock legacy rated rims/tires and therefore running about 3" shorter than stock, awesome LOOKING but not functional for getting up to the mountains with more than 2 people in the car! thanks guys!

acanadianreject:

I'm pretty sure SG (03-08) forester struts will lift your 98 OB fine.... There will be no breaking.
I think the want for saggy-butt spacers is more of a look than functional necessity.

You're tires will look quite small (195x60-15) with the larger wheel gap of a teller fender, but stay with good tires till they ware out, or until you can't stand the gap any longer. Then get a 215x65-16 grabber! or a 215x75-15 AT and you'll be psyched!!

best and post pix when you get it all done!! here and in this thread: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...228188&page=93

N'joy!

205 or 215 is the section width of the tire... not the sidewall... 205 or 215 can fit any wheel width (given the aspect ratio isn't low) between 5.5 up to 7"

I've got an 03 outback with the king springs on it. I got a decent lift and considering I only paid 300$ shipped I think I got a pretty good deal. I'm currently running the grabber at2 215/65/16's and my only complaint it that after only maybe 15,000 miles I'm down to about 4/32 tread. I did do some 1/8th mile drag racing on them but I'm still a little disappointed about the life. I plan on buying another set but going to 70 or 75 series.

I know SJR makes Subie lifts and other offroad mods. They're based out of Bellingham, Washington. From what I've seen of their website they look legit. subies are great offroad vehicles, though most wouldn't suspect it lol. I've taken mine offroad where my buddies didn't think I could make it. Hell, one of my friends with a lifted samurai couldn't make it where I did one time.

there is a local guy in my area that makes lifts for outbacks, foresters and old school loyales.. he does great work.

my buddy bought a lift for his loyale and it is very well built. he also makes wheels, skid plates, tube bumpers, push bars and and adapter plates so you can mate an ej motor with a loyale tranny with high/low four wheel drive.

It used to be called allied armorment, but now he changed the name to S.O.S, but i cant for the life of me remember what it stands for hahaha.
