Looks Great! I love the look of the older style Foresters lifted with the big aggressive tires.

Very nice! Which method did you use to get the lift, springs and spacers? Steel 2x2 blocks? Raise the strut from the bottom? There are so many ways to choose from. Which method did you choose and why? How far did you have to move the rear tires back? The rig looks great! Even my wife was impressed and she doesn't usually notice vehicle mods.

kingsprings & 1" strut spacer blocks from primitive, pararniod fabrication (HDPE). rear struts are SG to clear bigger tires under the perches.

I used the same method on my outback 6years ago ..no issues..

Looking good, if you don't already have them get the 3/16 aluminum skid plate and diff cover from Primitive. They are awesome and worth the investment. I had Paul send me Kings on KYB GR2's pre assembled and could not be happier. I think the Subtle lift blocks are probably better but Primitives skid and diff are much better than Subtles so I gave Paul the whole order.

Looks good. Sorry to hear that you decided to go with a different lift kit supplier.

That look awesome! Now I'm even more impatient waiting on the slow boat from Aus to bring my ironman springs.

That looks so right!! I also recommend the Primitive skidplates, put the full set on my 2013 2.5x, precision made product, perfect fit bolted right up with no fiddling about.
