Got some new bearings on the way before putting the carriers on, as the previous owner didn't have the carriers on for the past 5 years he owned that Forester, and there is 5 years of gunk that has gotten in there.

I'll also be get the skin resprayed and colour coded green.

The bloke I bought the bar off, bought the car about 6 years ago fully decked out with SubaXtreme gear - Front Bar, Rear Bar with Dual Carriers, SubaXtreme Lift Kit and SubaXtreme Sway Bar Link Extensions, however, he was a amputee, so the wheel carriers were a nuisance to open all the time, henceforth he removed them as soon as he bought the car.

A deal came up on a XT that ticked all my boxes, so it was time to transfer all the goodies over onto the new Forester, dubbed Ruby the XT.

Thanks all, the XT is super fun to drive compared to the old NA, and the VTD Auto is surprisingly nice to drive as well! The ole NA will be up for sale soon if anyone is interested
