My 2007 OBS w/ 5MT. It's lifted on FXT suspension w/ rear spacers, converted to sedan track, and has the complete set of 97-99 Outback body spacers installed. This summer I will be installing a Forester dual range 5MT w/ 4.44 FD, Suretrac R160, and 215/65/16 Grabbers.

JDM Racing Motors in Montreal. Great group of guys and they always treat me well when I drive up to buy parts from them.

FYI, my 03 Forester dual range came with 4.11s, but I installed 4.44s into it because I wanted the extra oomph.

I have an 04 WRX that i'm going to lift on King Springs soon. Looks like they give 1.4 front/1.5" rear. What should i be looking at for struts as i know being lowered has probably put my struts close to being bad by now after about 160k miles on them.

Also i want bigger tires. I found some Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S in 235/60-16 for a good price. I'm wondering what it would take for these to fit as they come out to 27.1" diameter and 9.25" wide. I'm guessing a small spacer would be necessary or an offset wheel as the tires are 1.2" wider than stock essentially. But if i have to go with a different wheel i'll end up going with a different size tire and try to offset it so i can get a 245 on. How many have gone with this wide of a tire in this diameter? How likely am i to run into rubbing issues?

Just got the L Presidente lifted up on Forester struts. Gotta install the trailing arm brackets to center the rear wheels and then get it aligned. Looking forward to hitting some dirt!

Thinking about getting a 2" ADF lift for my impreza. Will I need anything else other than the spacer?

Ordered my parts yesterday. King lift springs, KYB GR-2's and 16x7 gunmetal Vision 425 Bane wheels. Once the lift is installed i'll head to the tire shop and have them test fit a couple sizes and if the 235/60's clear then i'll go with them. If not, then i'll go with BFG K02's or Toyo Open Country AT II's in 215/70 and possibly use some spacers to get flush.

I'm planning to get the ADF 2" lift for my impreza. Do I need to buy the multi link spacer kit as well?

Do it, I am so happy I got mine. Mine is a 2015 wrx and it is the best decision I made. You should get the multilink rear kit(needed to run larger tires otherwise the wheels sit to far back to go much larger) I would recommend getting the whole kit as well as the extra 3/8 in the rear. Mine sits perfectly level with this set up and still retains all/most the handling I had before.

Were you the one who posted your WRX on reddit awhile back?

Anyways...

is the multilink rear a must? IE: Can I run a stock size tire, or similar? I'm thinking about buying a used set of 16" wrx wheels. I've never gotten an answer yet and tried searching around with no answer.

Good to know though! Thanks!

No not mine on reddit. I don't have any pictures on the Internet of mine. Can't figure out how to post pics on this forum. It is not a must no. The only thing it does is re-center your rear wheels. I would seriously recommend getting it though. Without it you could run stock size yes but it will look funny with the wheels being more toward the front. I would talk to the guys at ADF, they were so much help to me when I was looking, great product also.

Gotcha...

So it's not really used as a preventative measure? I read somewhere that the multilink spacer was either 1) only for recentering the wheels 2) A must to prevent CV damage.

Not to my knowledge no think it would be safe. I was under the impression that the back can handle more lift/drop then the front. But either way ADF told me that 2in would be within the limits before I had to start dropping lots of other parts, but I am no expert on any of this, far from it. Also how do you post pictures on this website I could never get a straight answer out of anyone? Thanks
