    My 2018 Outback with 34K miles does not ride very comfortably on any non-smooth surface. I feel potholes and bumps. I have tried different tire pressures from 33 psi to 42 psi. Is there a suspension part that should be checked and replaced? Do other tire inflations help?

    I replaced my Subaru Outback 2015 2.5L's rear right lower control arm (Part number: 20250AL01A) about 6 months ago. Originally, the squeaking was pretty bad over bumps which led to me replacing it - but it has returned a couple of months back. It seems like it's squeaking where it attaches to...
  3. Gen 4: 2010-2014
    This is just a post to help others out looking to replace the suspension on their Gen 4 Outback. After the dealership in California quoted me $1,633.00 parts and labor, I decided to get the job done on my own. I ended up paying about $1000 total, about $600 for parts and $400 for labor at a...

    Curious as to which year Forester struts would be compatible with a 2001 Outback base. I’m assuming 2000-2004 would work but would 2005 work with some extra work? Thanks

    We all know how Jeep owners love to park with one wheel up on the curb. Since I've never known a Jeep to do something a Subaru can't, I'm wondering if a 5th gen Outback could do this frequently without risk of damage to tires/suspension/etc. Stock tires, no spacers (2" kit coming in soon)...
  6. Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Hi, I'd like to install a set of 1-inch lift spacers, both front and rear. If any of you have done the same, how did it impact your Outback's fuel efficiency? Did you experience any other consequences with such a moderate lift (CV boot wear, etc.)? Thanks!

    Hi guys, thought i’d ask in here as i cant find an answer to this anywhere ! I’m looking at lowering my 2000 outback limited, i don’t want to spend heaps of money on coilovers nor do i want to “cut my springs”. I’ve found a pair of 2004 liberty stock springs which in theory will lower my...

    I’ve included a picture of my OBXT as it sits (silver) and a lowered example which has the ride height and fitment I’m going for (white). I’ve seen a lot of different info on here and my main question is what parts/ modifications will get me down on the ground like that? Legacy struts with...
  9. Problems & DIY Maintenance
    Hey everyone! got an old 99 legacy outback camper / battlewagon project I want to lift up a couple inches and get bigger tires, but I have concerns about the lift and how it will stress ball joints, bushings, and axle shafts etc, more than they were designed to accommodate. I want this thing...
  10. Gen 2: 2000-2004
    Aside from struts and the front sway bar in 2000-2004 model years, what are the differences between Legacy and Outback front end suspensions? Checking Subaru Parts Online web portal, it appears that the only difference for 2000-2004 model years is in the strut lengths. Specifically, I am...

    I just ordered the Ironman 2" suspension kit along with some wildpeak 245/16-17 to go on some method MR503 17x8 for my 2020 Touring XT. I plan on doing the installation myself but wanted to make sure that there wasn't other parts I should be considering installing. It does not appear that a...
  12. Gen 5: 2015-2019
    So I've seen a few of the posts on here about sway bar upgrades for the 15-17 OBs, but I still had a few questions. 1) What's the part number that you guys were using for the upgrade? I was looking at doing a 19mm but am not opposed to 20mm. I also don't know how much of a difference it would...
  13. Performance Parts & Accessories
    Looking to put air suspension on my Gen 6 2020 XT model. I understand that the legacy suspension is supposed to work with this generation of outback but was unsure if there was wheel clearance issues when doing the legacy suspension. I've seen several post on here about the lowering of the...
  14. Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hello everyone, Just asking about what the best ways/parts to upgrade to for most of the suspension components in my XT. I am planning to run BF Goodrich KO2's with some aftermarket wheels with a little smaller of an offset than the stock rims. Suspension wise, I already have a 2" Sumo lift...

    Hi, I just bought a used 2003 Subaru Outback and I am looking for advice from people with experience. My main goals at the moment are: 1. Stop engine oil leak 2. Improve suspension for off-road/rally driving 3. Improve lights for night driving/off-road 4. More power 5. Longevity If you have...
  16. 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.
  17. Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    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.
  20. Gen 5: 2015-2019
    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...
