Nacha, you have modified you're trailing arms, is there a how-to? Any thoughts about it?
Or better do I use spacers for a max 2" lift?

Trailing Arm Spacers are a much better way of doing it. I'm going to remove my longer TAs as they push the wheel too far back under full compression. TA spacers are much better at keeping the correct angles as the wheel swings through it arc as it compresses.

Have a look at Trailing Arm Blocks

Started going through the GoPro vids from Echo Camp Backtrack, Arkaroola. Found a good example of the Subaru AWD system with rear plated LSD at work:

Nice, your plated LSD seems to work well.

And the location of the GoPro is perfect to see it work !

Suffered a little damage (bent strut) doing a black diamond run & a double black diamond:

So...time for some SG rear struts for better tyre clearance plus upgrade the strut tops for more caster?camber.

Front:

Rear:



I also put in a new rear wheel bearing in a new (old) hub. I also found the axle outer cup was worn so chased down a new axle.

Then I finally fitted my HID driving lights. The wiring & relay had been done ages ago when I upgraded my headlights, so it was just a matter of making a mount for it & adding the wiring from the lights to the relay
