He lifted it the right way, not just adding height to the suspension and having no droop like most Subaru lift kits. He also isn't running sh*t stiff lift springs like dobsons & kings which significantly limit the up travel as well.

The ground clearance in the rear is huge and the front is being sorted. And protected. Plus once there is a bumper up front again it will actually look like a forester haha

30's on a 2.5???

I have 28's on my outback and it has made a huge impact in performance. Let alone in an auto with 3.7 ratios!

yes autos do have a 4.44 final drive ratio.

kyle did have 30's on his GL with stock motor and 3.7's tho, and he got around just fine... not quickly, but honestly i was surprised because i would have thought it would be much slower than it was with that little motor. :P

i am going to be doing a 2in body lift with 3-3.5 suspension and 30's on mine aswell. i am not worried about it being slow, and ill be at lower RPM's going 75mph on the freeway!

the rear struts as initially assembled were way too stiff and needed a re-valve. we were going to get some help from a known expert in the off road strut re-valve world but couldn't get our schedules in line, so we went for it. we knew exactly how to do the physical work and the concept of re-valving but didn't really want to take a shot in the dark on the shims and re-assemble and be wrong. however, in true rally fashion we pressed on regardless and took that shot in the dark. and who knew it would end up being a huge improvement!










now we are ready for our annual big bear trip to test the fozz in some real action

Great work

What shocks are they? Approx cost?

Did the fuel container survive being squished against the roof or is it just the camera angle lol
