Are you guys building you own lift kits?
I've owned a few early 80's subaru wagons. I would love to find another one or even a forester.

Yea the 2 foresters have 2 different style lifts on them, both work out to about 2.5in lift O and yes made both setups. Green one has 30x9.5r15 with recentered forester rims and the silver one has 235/75r15 bfg allterrains with 1.5in wheel spacers. Then the outback has bunch of different things going on for lift and works out to about 8in lift and 31 mtr retreads.

Yea no prob on info other day.

Has no big motor mods just few odds and ends, was surprized i beat the turbo car in a drag race, woulda been even more but clutch was slippin at the start (thats what the smoke at the start of the drag race is if you look close in the video)
Yea there def fun to go play with, wish had video going threw the rollers in the field. Got huge air a few times then ended up bending the driverside front strut in half which is why the tire is off at the end of the video.

O and did drive nicer then the truck in the woods

Thanks Subaru guys too for offering great deals on fixing them. You guys do a great job. What are you down to like 5 dollar oil changes.

Love to, show me an american made AWD car that gets 25+ mpg on the highway that can be purchased with a stick shift and is less than $30,000 dollars? Or maybe something in the used market with the same criteria for less than $5,000? $2,000?....thought so.

Now, go back to fucking your self you fucking retard.
