Default update on my wagon... (56k beware)

in case you are unfamiliar, my wagon started like this:


and then it went to this... which many people didn't care for


but most don't understand that i have another lowered car that i show:


and i was really looking for a ride that was nice for a daily driver and didn't rub tire every time i went over a bump...

NOW... for the update...
new wheels and tires...



and the way a subaru SHOULD look



future will include an alliedarmament lift, an ea series 5spd 4x4 high/low tranny swap, limited slip rear diff, and some underbody protection. (not necessarily in that order)

hope you guys like it. (although it's not exactly the norm)

Gaaah! Can't you do that to one with a roof rack? I need one without the rack for my track car!

Just kidding, it's cool that your legacy does what you want!

I'd think with the mud tires, you'd want a roof rack with some lights mounted up there! I like the look with all the mud a lot. You should just clearcoat over that mud and call it a day!!!

Why did you shave the roof racks and not the antenna? Or at least put a euro antenna in the middle of the roof (from side to side), near the back of the roof (front to rear)?

Because subaru did it for him a decade ago. You could get a legacy without a roof rack.

Those black rims look horrible- like a poor spraypaint job all scratched up.

But that mud shot is freakin' gorgeous. Nice work!

yeah, well, Spence didn't get this for just off-roading. It's his daily driver too. Otherwise he would've gotten a Jeep.

Can I get a parts list for what you used to do this? I want to do something similar to my 96 Legacy. Please include the rim and tire size please. Awesome.

outback struts and springs off a 96-99 outback, wheels are factory 16" wrx wheels, tires are 215/65/16. that's all that was needed to have it sit the way it is.

Thanks. Sorry for the delay. I will have the parts (or something similar) by Xmas. It's funny having to plan so far ahead now that I have a family. I remember when I would've had the parts the next day.
