What's the better suspension setup to go with here? Everyone keeps saying "get coilovers," but I wan to be able to go out in potentially deep snow. I was thinking of getting king springs at stock height and some good performance struts.

Any suggestions? Sorry that this isn't a technical thread, but figured I'd ask

What happened to your oem one? It's made out of steel and hooks to the body of the car, can't get much more sturdy that that.

It all really depends on what you want to do. My 07 wrx is on isc coils, I don't really take it out in snow more than 3-4".cause I don't want to rip my front lip off.

Also I tend to stay away from gravel roads as the travel on my coils is very short, making large potholes or heavily washboarded roads not very fun.

My 99 Outback sport is on 08 forester XT struts, and I take that sucker just about anywhere, lots of teavel, lot of cushion, and lots of ground clearance (12" at both diffs).

A set of KYB struts and some kind springs would work very well for what you describe wanting to do with your car.

Hope I helped give you a more.ofnan idea of what you want to go with.

Looking to lift my 02 wagon with brand new Fozzy struts and brand new springs. After looking at the lift threads here, it's my understanding that 99-08 take offs can be used, but I want to do brand new. Looking up the KYBs, I see there are differences in price with regard to year. I was wondering if one year is more desirable? 03 seems to be the cheapest. Lol and what about springs? I don't want to spend the bucks for some Kings, so I'm just going to do oem....what's the best oem parts site you know of?

If you plan to do tires bigger than 215/65/16 you need SG (04-08) style rear struts. Other than that, get whats cheap.

Just wondering if any of you have ideas for storing a full size spare. I have an 02 wagon. And like to have a full size tire for backup if I need it. The spot where the donut is wide enough but not deep enough for the cover panel to drop back in flush. Any ideas are appreciated,, thanks!

Fullsize tire youd have to ditch the cover panel....or buy a yakima and put it on the roof safari style.

We had a Subaru Nationals down here for the first time this weekend, my job was to take spectators out on the grass for joy rides. Tough job but someone had to do it

You can run the Kings with your stock struts and be fine. The 10+ cars can deal with the slight bump in rate no problem. You'll get a 1.5" lift with those, which is plenty for what most folks want to do with their cars. You won't have gravel valving, so they won;t be optimal for dirt, but they'll still work fairly well.

Unfortunately, Feal manufactured the only gravel specific damper upgrade for these cars, but they have since discontinued the gravel insert/shock upgrade. They do however offer two gravel valved coilover options which are proving to be pretty nice.

Drop me line on here and I can help you get sorted with something.

Hey all....I've got a 05 92X & I'm about to buy 04 forester struts to give it some lift...I've read it'll do anywhere from 2-3 inches of lift...can anyone be more specific? Also, any problems I should look out for? I've been doing some reading and will continue to, but one site says something that always seems to contradict another site.

Your biggest problems are going to be front endlinks, fender liners, and alignment.

Sti rear endlinks for the front. Camber bolts out back.

Honestly it would be best to have a second car wile doing this.

I spent 2 or 3 days getting everything mostly right on my 99 OBS.

It seriously adds a new level of awesome to your subie, everywhere I drive people just stare, they just don't know what they are looking at.
