  2. Wheels and Tires
    Got these mounted today. I have a 2” lift from Ironman4x4 and they rubbed on the inner wheel well guards on the front on full turn in just barely. Tire shop used a heat gun and massages it out. Super digging these so far. They seem to be quieter then my Falken oem tires it came with. Will be...
  3. Offroad Fozzies
    Hey, I've been putting too many miles on my Jeep runnin back and fourth from SF to the Sierras. I decided that I need a little mountain runner beater. I've always liked the 06-08 Forester xt, I think it looks the coolest when it's all done up. After a year of looking, (these things are pretty...

  5. Offroad Suspension
    Hi everyone, After introducing myself in other part of this forum I think this could be the right place to ask a few questions. I just got 3" spacers on struts installed. I couldn´t do it myself with only manual tools so I got a mechanic to do it. The issue now is the brake lines are tight and...
  6. Offroad Suspension
    I want to put some strut spacers on a 2008 Forester of about 2 inches, I want to know if anyone knows any brand or site that you guys have used that are sort of cheap but have worked well. Also, after installation of the spacers, what should I do? I heard that it has to be aligned and camber...
  7. Offroad Suspension
    Hi there! I have a 2006 Subaru Forester L.L.Bean I've been scouring the net and stores and having a heck of a time finding a set of strut/spring assemblies that will fit my LLBean due to the self leveling suspension. Everything I'm finding excludes this model. I have a bad front and a bad rear...

  10. Transmission and Driveline
    I installed a 2 inch lift on my '06 2.5x and have recently had issues with the rear axles popping out of the diff. Are the stock axles not long enough to handle the extra angle caused by the lift? I see a-lot of people running the the same lift as me with no issues. Do they make a slightly...
  11. Suspension and Handling
    I want to make my own HDPE lift as it would be considerably cheaper than purchasing a pre built one, and I am curious if anyone has attempted this/already has a diagram or dimensions drawn up of the struts. Any suggestions for DIY HDPE lifts would be appreciated as well! 2016 FXT Premium
