Re: New to me...2005 OBXT

Not so much into the monster truck thing but those geolander tires don't look so knobby, perhaps they won't hurt fuel consumption too bad. Be careful with the power mods, you're going to blow it up. Behind every modded turbo outback there is a tragic story.

Re: New to me...2005 OBXT

Okay I got some inspiration....
https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/d3/4f/de/d34fde51092327874e31f08fba676806.jpg

I found a great deal for Goodyear Eagle Sports mounted on Sparco Pro Corsas with only 5,000 mile on them (same wheels as above) for $550.  This setup is 1" taller than stock and will fit without a lift...but I was thinking of adding a 1" - 1.5" lift spacer.

Should I lift the outback!!!

Re: New to me...2005 OBXT

Looks good!  Are you going to drop the ride height or keep it stock?

Re: New to me...2005 OBXT

I put a Ford Superduty grille guard in my OBXT when I had it.  Pretty cavernous.  Shit rear legroom though.

Re: New to me...2005 OBXT

I have ordered all new KTB Excel-G struts and KYB top hats. Still trying to decide on springs (Rallitek lift springs vs lifted King Springs or just Rallitek overload vs stock height King springs)  Rallitek said if I go with the lifted spring I should use whiteline adj control arms.

Re: New to me...2005 OBXT

makes sense with the added weight of these meaty tires...this may be lighter than stock  banana

I will paint them black and add the red Enkei stickers  roxor
