4-6" lift? What is this Wrangler forum,m :)

Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
Funny thing is I seen a lifted outback and said dang I want one of those so 2 weeks ago I went and bought an old 03 model that was in really good shape and under 200k miles but I cant found any kits for a 6 inch lift someone suggested I use new coilovers with 2 inches of lift then add a 4 inch spacer but for some reason I feel like that wouldnt work I dont really know so I came here for answers ?

ADF (of Colorado), LP Adventure (of Quebec), and Subie Oz (Australia)

all make 1 to 6" lift kits for outbacks.

we have the "outback unpaved" section here with such cars in pics / video.

and there is a forum called "off road subarus" ...with a "s" on the end with lots more.

2" is the most common lift you'll probably find due to the suspension design of the Outback.

To do a 4-6" lift you have to extend brake lines, abs sensors, drop the engine cradle, etc.

Leading to a much higher cost than a 2" lift.

That said: go for it!

Im thinking I might be able to lift it properly 6inches for around 2500-3000 $ but a 2 inch lift isn't enough I need at least 4 would really like 6 I would like to do the work myself mainly for the experience and to call it my own I just want to do it properly! That being said brake line and abs won't be an issue dropping I'm just not sure about dropping the engine cradle?

I've checked 2 of these recently and only found forester kits but I would assume those will fit for the outback?

This seem the most legitimate I have found so far definitely saving this link, now I need to figure out which coilovers to go for.

By engine cradle are you talking about the subframe that the engine attatches to?
