      Since it looks like the Subaru thread got black holed

      Just ordered King Springs from Primitive Racing for my Outback. The springs should lift it ~.6", but since the KYBs have a slightly higher spring seat then OEM, I should see something like .75"-1" of total lift. Perfect for a DD.

      Just back to stock for now, but over 7" up from where it was...
      That is NOT over 7 inches...

      Not suspension only keep in mind, went from 40 series tires and dumped to stock + 65 series snow tires. The lift is from bumper to ground, I raised the rear coils 4" or more to match the front and the tires accounted for the rest. May not be 7" exactly but it is waaay higher that it was

      My Outback, it's lifted 1.5 inches on a combination of H6-3.0 front springs and RalliTEK Overload rear springs.

      A few videos of my Golf - it was lifted 4" and on 4" oversized tires (27x8.50r14)

      Lifted MKII VW Golf Diesel Offroad YouTube Video Playlist

      I'm hoping to bring it back to life sometime this summer. Had a little hydrolock situation after dunking it into a mud hole that was deeper than anticipated.

      So sad I missed it too. I had to cover work for my boss or I would have been mud drifting along with 'em.

      Here is one from the rally this weekend, new rear suspension worked awesome, this is with 300# of tools and spare parts in the trunk, and I hauled 3 people! Spring rate is a bit much when not fully loaded so I'm gonna try a few other sets to find the right balance.

      Looking good.

      I need to sack up and lift my new Golf TDI. It's one of the things that I miss the most about the B5 wagon that I had.
      Lately I have been testing "tip-in events". Just the tip-in. Just to see how it feels. Response time is typically on the order of 2-3 seconds. Sometimes the injection timing is a little off...

      I've been through that thread a few times and it was one of the reasons that I bought the car that I did. I knew it was possible. I'm not going to go as far as he did. The biggest issue that I'm wrestling with is that I really like the fuel economy of my TDI and I don't want to lose it (~42 mpg) by going higher and the Golf TDIs come with the same sport suspension as the GTIs and it's been a blast to drive, I just need to get a few trail heads here and there. Air bags?

      I only dropped like ~2 mpg, with the lift and the twice as heavy wheel and tire combo. And I didnt notice a difference which the initial lift.

      So lift your Golf!

      Tiguan shocks/struts/springs all the way around?

      Tig springs and 1" strut spacers up front,
      and tig springs, 1" spring spacers (TJ Jeep ones cut down), and BDS shocks in the back.

      I remembered reading how you did it, I'll skip the 1" spacer since I don't need to go as high as you did. Any reason not to do the Tig shocks in the rear? You had to do some fab work to fit the BDS shocks didn't you?

      No fab work to make the bds shocks fit. Just measured the sprung height and called the local 4x4 shop and asked for a shock with that as a midrange and for a shock with a eye/post setup.

      I imagine the tig shocks would work, its all based on the same platform. I just didnt try those. The BDS shocks are stiff and will take a beating.... and only like $30 a piece.
