Actually, we all liked the lift alot, Sean even said he wanted one for his turbo baja. I've been driving it around for a few days now and it feels great... although much more truck-like.

What we all had problems with was that parts weren't included that should have been, and some parts didn't fit. Either Renick doesn't know what they are selling or Scorpion isn't making the kits correctly. And the instructions SUCKED !!! This was suppose to be a few hour project that turned into 2 and a half days. on a positive note, the quality of the parts were very good.

The reality it that the Scorpion products are not made for the Baja, they are made for the Outback. There is no Baja in AU. So, you can expect a few fit problems when crossing over to the Baja, notably in the rear where the most differences exist between the two cars.

Since they don't have a Baja to use for a model don't expect an authentic, spot on Baja lift anytime soon. At least this one fits 90 percent perfect.

perry,
while that is true, you will notice that on both the xcceleration and renick site, they advertise it specifically for the baja. the problem is if you have to refabricate a part and mess up, that part is ruined. thus the lift is ruined. you shouldn't have to do that, especially to a critical part. and that aslo doesn't explain why there were parts indicated in the instructions that were not included in the kit at all

Jamba,

I agree with you. I was just pointing out that even though the kit will work, would be lifters should be forwarned that it isn't a perfect appliccation.

Renick should really try to correct the kits they get, or better yet, have Scorpion do it. Be sure you let them know of the problems you had with the one you installed. I think I will wait for the Mudrat kit given your experience.

Perry

PS - Where are the finished pictures?
