That would not work. Maybe I am missing something. You have to drill new holes in the body. The way the bolt pattern drilled would make it off 60 degress.

They have the same image of the spacers for every car. Their description makes them sound like spring lift blocks rather than tophat spacers, but who knows. Someone should see if they have any pictures of what they're actually trying to sell for the forester.

I think the front will work because its on a bearing that you could rotate but the rear will need new holes or maybe there is a reason for 1.25" tall that you could bolt straight up.

Velocity - 130 for the front 130 for the rear = 260
Subtle - front and rear = 235

might be 1/4 inch taller but not cheaper.

Fancy look for something you never see :lol:
Anyway for my kind of setup I would be getting Subtle's spacers anyway. I would want to stay in range of the 2" max lift I be getting from combing with the raised kings I have.
But because of some stupid laws over here I'm not going to put spacers in.

I think kings and a 1" lift spacer is the way to go. We are working on a 2" strut spacer right now though.

Ye. Kings plus spacers is best if you like a bit stiffer setup then the oem that is. If not it's spacers all the way.

Hello to all! I've only just joined up but am VERY keen to know the progress of the 2" spacers. The spacers and a set of 225/60/17 Yokohama AT/S is first on list for the XT! I have tried many avenues for Aussie built spacers but the manufacturers have either stopped production or won't answer emails/phones.

I just got a quote back fromm Velocity Offroad of $159.99 US each! Not the $130 each as mentioned above so something has changed there a little. So you'll be looking at $320 US for front and rear. Apparently they are out of stock but had a small redesign to make installation easier and the new design will be in stock mid next week.

Did you ever check out our 1" lift? I don't recall getting an email from you.

We are in the works on a 2" lift kit too!

Yes, I checked out your website and got prices from there, so you're not ruled out of the equation. Roughly how long until the 2" kit will be available? It would suit me much better than the 1".

Couple of weeks and then a few days to powder coat. My metal guy is swamped w/ jobs right now for the Aerospace industry. I'll do my best to squeeze this into their busy schedule.

Is it possible to fit 2" lift on the SH without any strut mod? By design, I heard the highest it can go is 1.4", after which modification is definitely needed.
