  1. Suspension and Handling
    Hello everyone, this is my first post! I’ve been resurrecting an 02 Forester I bought on the cheap for about a month now. I put in a low mile ej20, a low mile 5MT transaxle out of an 04 forester and a 2” lift using spacers. Took it on a 600 mile test camping trip and everything was awesome. I...
  2. Suspension and Handling
    Hello All! Recently bought an automatic 2005 Forester XS at the end of last year. It's my daily drive, however I live in the PNW and value off road capabilities so I was looking at doing some modifications to bolster it in that aspect. After reading posts on here I'm considering a 2 inch ADF...
  3. Offroad Suspension
    So I’m torn between Anderson’s 2” strut spacer or primitives 1” lift kit. Primitives is on sale and has king springs and more to it but it’s not as aggressive of a lift? Any thoughts? I’m newer to over landing and all it entails with the vehicle side of things so, if you’d like, please tell me...

    Hey y’all, So I am planning on getting at 2” lift kit with a 2.5” lift in the back and to save money, wanted to get 245/65r17 Toto Open Country’s while keeping the stock 17” rims.

  5. Offroad Suspension
    Hey all, this is my first post on here, so I hope I’m doing this right. I’ve got a 2004 XT 4eat that I am wanting to lift a little. I’m thinking about either ADF 2” top hat spacers or eBay 3” top hat spacers. I am also wanting bigger tires but want to keep stock wheels. I’m wondering if anyone...
  6. Suspension and Handling
    Sometimes I tow a trailer that is actually over capacity for the car. I need to beef up the rear suspension to prevent sag. I have beefed up the hitch, 7 way wiring, ( trailer has brakes ) and put in a heavy duty high capacity transmission cooler on the vehicle, 2019 touring with the boxer...
  7. Suspension and Handling
    Hey y'all, I have been looking at the 2" lift kits made by bit Rallitek and ADF, originally I had been leaning towards the ADF one, but I found the Rallitek one just today. Now as far as I can tell they have no difference except about $50, anyone have any experience with either one? Or another...

    Selling a used 1.5" front/ 1 7/8" rear Anderson Design & Fabrication lift kit for the SH Foresters. I purchased the kit used off of this site 2 years ago and never got around to installing it on my daily driver. I recently had to get new springs/struts and ended up getting the raised Rallitek...
  9. Offroad Suspension
    I'm looking to do a 1" lift with upgraded springs and have no idea what kit to go with or if one is better than the other. I'm planning to install stiffer standard height springs to get rid of the saggy butt and put some gear in the back for camping with the possibility of doing some light...
  10. Offroad Suspension
    So I own a 2001 forester with 2” strut spaces and subframe spacers to even out the alignment. I’m wondering if anyone has some tips as to why my check engine light would be on? And why it looks higher in the front than the rear!?

    The plan is to make my 2016 Premium 2.5i 6MT a somewhat desert-worthy traveler. I will share a few notes here to hopefully help anyone else who is looking to make mods for a similar reason: Yesterday a 2" lift kit from Raceland went on the car. It was a pretty smooth process, biggest issue was...

    Hey guys, I am in the process of installing a 1.6 inch lift (40mm) to my otherwise stock 2001 Natural aspirated forester and I am looking at putting some bigger all terrain wheels on it.

  15. Offroad Suspension
    I’m a recent forum member, and the current situation has allowed me to finish projects on my subie. I was wondering what the most adequate / financially sound option there is when it comes to lifting. I currently have the stock suspension and wheels. I wasn’t trying to really do more than a 2”...

    I'm looking into lift kits. From my research it seems that ADF and Primitive are the top 2 kits. Anyone have pros and cons? Any other recommendations? ADF - 2019-2020 Subaru Forester 1.5" Strut Spacers W/ Multi Link Spacers Primitive - 2019+ Forester Lift Kit
  17. Suspension and Handling
    Hi Everyone! I am considering getting a lift kit for my forester for more off-roading/camping adventures. After some research, I've narrowed it down to ADF's lift kit for 2015 limited. I reached out to a local Subaru shop that's authorized to install the kit per ADF's website & got quoted...

    I've seen a lot about the lift kits everyones been using but not much on actual suspension (springs/ Shocks) for off road/ overlanding. Whats everyone using? Is there a preferred suspension set-up? Anyone try and set up fox shocks on their rigs?
