My country problem that we no have those aftermarket bolts here . must order from amazon or ebay and wait for couple weeks . plus pay lots for postage.
I thought maybe i could make them from original bolts or weld some and grind some on smaller bolts to make them kinda like aftermarket ones.

That's way cheaper than paying for repairs after the wheel comes off, plus hospital bills!

Think about it, if the wheel/hub assembly comes off you will lose control & have no way to avoid oncoming traffic like a big truck or a bus full of school children. Are you really worried about a few dollars postage?

Hello from bonnie Scotland,

Im wanting to make my own 2 inch front and 2.5 inch rear lift for my 2004 SG Forester.
I have gone over soooooo many forum post and this one seams to be the best. So,

1. Does anyone have any 1.1 drawings i could just print off.
2. The offset for a 2 inch lift is 7MM, what about for the rear 2.5 lift?
3. Also what did you guys do regarding the rear trailing arm spacers?

4. How much would a kit cost if i was to buy one?

Thnaks

Trailing arm spacers need to have bracing to stop them rocking when you hit a pothole, speed bump, rut, etc.

A 2" lift kit with camber & caster offset and rear trailing arm spacers is 425 GBP with FREE shipping to the UK.
2.5" rear spacers are an extra $20 to correct any butt sag.

2.5" front 3" rear with 3" trailing arm spacers is also available for 495 GBP with FREE shipping.

Hello NachaLuva,
Thank you for the info and quote, that looks really cool.
I think I'm going to make up my own set, it looks quite easy but you never know I might be ordering your kit if it all goes to ****.
Any info on the offset for the 2.5 rear spacers?

Hope you understand if I can't give out any information. I've spent a lot of time, money & energy perfecting my kits & can't give away my secrets...

that 2'' offset 7mm is for foresters and outbacks same ? and that offset goes to inside car straight or it has some caster as well . i mean some kits says camber and caster offset. so what makes caster then ? i think as car looks lifted it would need just little caster moved to front.
