How high do you want to go?

Forester struts/springs would give you a pretty fair lift with a lot of tyre clearance.

Most of the legal trails in manahawkin/barnegat are right off of rt 72. Any two track in Wharton State Forrest is open to registered and insured vehicles unless otherwise posted. There are some restricted areas off 72 (hidden lakes, etc.) All around some great trails for subies though.

lol It's almost funny that the last bit of dialogue is "remember, it tightens" (that's what she said) and then bam, off the course at the decreasing radius.

I'm sorry about the wreck, and I'm glad to hear you're ok. Get her back up and running and you'll be good for next time!

Brisky....

Ive got the stock obs springs on and these http://www.dirtyimpreza.com/forums/s...=jackson+rally

Its a 1in spacer/lift that goes on top of the tophat. The tires are General Grabber a/t 215/65/16. You really cant go any bigger with that rim size. They are soooo tight! I love it.

Cool.
So did I read that thread right that he makes it for the GC/GF chassis as well?

Probably easier then putting on forester struts I would think.
A bit pricey though $230 +15 S&H.

Does it drive different?
I mean did you loose anything in the handling department?

It seems getting a tall slightly stiffer spring may not be fees able.

Thanks for the post!

It's higher now, though!

The lift itself is complete and the Forester springs are back in (it had STi springs temporarily) and all he needs to do to fix the bit of positive camber he has now is to get some different lateral links and front control arms, which it sounds like he may be putting in tonight!

The final lift is 8 inches in the rear and 7.5 inches in the front. The whole drive train was lowered on the chassis 4 inches to give the extra lift.

It was nicely parked next to his current DD Outback Sport, which really shows a nice contrast since it's slammed.
