Hey guys. I have a 2015 premium and I am trying to find a hitch that will work. I put WRX suspension on it, so it ended up being lowered about 3 inches or so. I just wanted to make sure when I grab a hitch for it, that it doesn't become a problem with the car being so low.

I've been looking at the torklift hitch, as well as some of the more cost-effective ones. Does anyone have any experience putting a hitch on a lowered one? I wasn't sure how far the different brands hung down. Thank you!

No personal experience, but I would suggest looking at something that is designed to retain as much ground clearance as possible. The EcoHitch and StealthHitch are two examples.

I love my torklift hitch. I like the 2 inch receiver since all my stuff is all 2 inch. But the oem hitch might get you a little more clearance. The torklift puts the receiver opening right at the bottom of the bumper but the oem hitch is recessed up into the bumper requiring trimming of the bottom of the bumper. Keep in mind the oem hitch is a 1 1/4 inch receiver.
