      Asking that question is DIW. Lifted Subarus are awesome.

      That snorkel would be a lot more awesome with some black spray paint.


      Can someone direct me to a DIY on this? There is a slightly beat Forrester languishing at my neighbors house that could use this treatment.

      Still doing it right, although I must admit my bias as I'm currently in the process to save for an inch lift on my '10 Impreza

      I plan to put some Outback struts on my 90 legacy to give it a little more lift and clearance for bigger tires.

      IMO, the only problem with lifting a newer Subaru is its lack of a 2-speed transfer case. For those like me whose idea of off-road fun involves crawling over rocks, what's the point if you can't actually crawl?

      There is a guy floating around a few of the good Subaru boards who put a 5sp with low range from mid 80s GL into his Forester that was lifted.
