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 the sway bar end links didn´t fit anymore.
So I am on the hunt for brakeline extension brackets and rear endlinks for this 3" lift in Canada if possible.

I emailed the place where I got the spacers, but still waiting for an answer, I wasn´t aware that I would need more parts to do the right installation.

Thanks in advance for your help,

I´m looking forward to upload some pics of the mods soon. Right now I have stock wheels, but I´m waiting on 16" black rhino rumble rims and 225/75 BFG tires.

Yeah, as you change the geometry of the rear suspension, you change the distance for the brake lines and links... the beauty of a multi-link suspension.

You MAY be able to buy them from another source, but most of the lift kits I've seen sold in the US the max is 2" lift.. but you may be able to reach out to one of those sources (readilift, adf, lp adventure, whomever) and see if they sell those items separately from their lift kits...

or try everybody's favorites - Amazon and eBay.

Thanks FozzieBalou,

I got in touch with a Subaru specialist in Ottawa, and he should be able to help me out finding what I need. He is quite busy though, so I will need to wait a bit.

In the meantime I am fine tuning the wheel wells for the rubbing when full turn. Also I just got the tow hooks, they are OEM, I got them on ebay, I think somebody else was looking for some. They are not easy to find, I will post the link on the right thread if I find that post again.
This is the part number: 57805FG000
Here is the link to ebay: Tow hook

Also I am thinking about painting a stripe of a few inches all around the bottom of the car with bed liner for protection. Does anybody has any tip about what product is best?? I've heard Rust-Oleum Truck Bed Coating is very good.

And I will get some better pics, but for now here are a few : )
