  1. Gen 3: 2005-2009
    A couple weeks ago I added raided king springs/kyb struts, and moog control arms/bushings as well as moog ball joints. I also took the time while flywheels were ooff to sand and paint them. Next step is deciding on the tires I want to go with.

    I have had a clunk towards the front right of the vehicle since I installed the Flatout suspension coilovers. It’s mostly at slower speeds going over small bumps. Originally I thought it was a bad end link on the sway bar so I ordered beefier rallyteck ones. I then decided to remove the front...

    Hi Purchased these coils to lower my Outback but there’s still a considerable gap between the tire and fender. Looking to switch to legacy spec coil-overs instead. These coils have less than 1000 miles on them, still fairly new. Purchased in April and installed in May. These will remain on the...

    I was wondering where the cheapest place to get shocks and struts for my 2005 Subaru Outback 6 cylinder.

    Greetings! In this post I am going to lay out my general roadmap for what I have planned for my 2015 OB and use this map to ask questions and for advice. Eventually, once I start receiving parts I will add pretty pictures to the thread. I am going to lay it out in a list format and these...

    Hey everyone, long-time scroller here. I'm looking for some help -- I recently had an ADF lift kit installed on my Gen 4 2014 2.5i Limited Outback. I also replaced all four struts (KYB Excel-G). The ADF kit is 1 ½" in the front and 1 ⅞" in the rear. When I brought it home and was inspecting...

    Hi all. I have a 2001 outback VDC, and I love it to bits! Thing is, I run out of ground clearance going along the beach sometimes if I pick a bad line, or simply going along muddy tracks with rocks jutting out. What I would like to do: Fat, muddy, offroad tyres. Are these worth it? What...

    Howdy! My Outback has a knocking sound in the front driver side when my wheel hits bumps. I have an extended warranty but the dealer wants to charge me $190 for diagnostics if I bring it in and the item isn't covered so I'm hoping to figure it out beforehand and make sure its a covered item...

    Hello, fellow Outbackers! I just took my new (to me) 2009 2.5 PZEV Outback in for its government required Motor Vehicle Inspection here on the East Coast of Canada and the shop has informed me that the left front ball joint and right front tie rod is in need of replacing. This isn't unexpected...

    Hi guys. I’m looking to put outback suspension on my ‘04 Impreza outback sport. Anyone letting go of shocks and springs?
  12. Gen 6: 2020-Future
    Hello All, Just bought a 2021 Outback Limited, and then found this forum. I just figured out that the new outback have used aluminum from and rear suspension components. Previously I have only saw those in luxury/high end car chassis and I really apprecieate that Subaru decide to upgrade their...

    I just drove from ny to vancouver with my OB way over loaded with crap. I'm pretty sure my suspension is going to be shot when I finish unpacking everything. I'm trying to decide if I should replace everything that wore out with OEM parts or put on some coilovers and dropping it an inch or 2...

    I have a 2007 Outback Limited w/@197,000 miles. I noticed earlier this week an intermittent rubbing sound and yesterday at highway speeds I noticed a shimmy in the steering wheel. I think I’ve narrowed the rubbing sound down. When accelerating on a left turn / curve past a certain point (which I...

    Hi all, I’m a Sydney based member and am trying to source Bilstein rear shocks. It’s seeming almost impossible! Has anyone had much luck sourcing Bilstein (or other shocks exc. KYB) locally? Thanks!

    Hi all, I did a search but couldn’t find the comprehensive answer for this, but let me know if there already is one. I have a 2019 Subaru Outback 2.5 and do a lot of camping trips. These range anywhere from a few days to a week to a month. I have a rooftop tent and kitchen setup in the back, and...

    I just finished a full spring and strut swap on my 2018 Outback. The setup includes Rallitek stock height springs, Bilstein B4’s and 1.5” ADF Spacers. After install and driving around for a few days, the wheel gap is 5.5” at three corners and 5” at the rear drivers side. It is enough to be...

    My cv axle is seized into my hub assembly at this point I’ve given up trying to remove it and am just trying to find a new steering knuckle as I’m rebuilding my entire suspension anyways. As it so happens tho it is almost impossible to find a steering knuckle for my 1999 legacy outback anywhere...

    Hey guys, I've read through a few different articles on here about KYB suspension setup. I'm about ready to replace all 4 struts on my 07 outback and was just going to go with the gen 3's but have seen people recommending gen 2's in rear and gen 3's in the front or even gen 2's all around...
