I have been driving on the new suspension setup more than two months and I have to tell you that I am very glad that I made the purchase of the raised height King Springs and that I got the alternative KYB struts for the rear of my 2008 Outback. Continue reading

Just wanted to let you know how happy we are with the triple armour skid plates and brushbar on our 2012 Outback. Have some Lightforce auxiliary lights on it which makes the driving in our long dark winters up here in the Yukon much safer and enjoyable, definitely have helped spot the wildlife, and it’s nice having the extra protection. This will make the next trip up the Dempster Highway so much more enjoyable this winter.
Re: King STD height springs and Koni Shocks – 2008 WRX
HOLY CRAP! I am so unbelievably impressed with them. They feel great for the 4 days worth of driving I have on them now. The suspension feels more articulate and I am fully pleased with the front and rear spring rate. The ride is sporty yet supple and comfortable with a softer Koni setting, but can still feel tight and aggressive if I crank the Koni’s up. Granted, I couldn’t care less about that! Best of all, my wife is willing to ride in the WRX again! Continue reading
I purchased a set of Rally Triple Armor skid plates for my XV Crosstrek a month or two ago. I just wanted to say, these things have saved my XV countless times, and have more than lived up to my expectations. You make an incredibly great product, and I recommend your plates to all the new forum members, as well as my friends who have XV’s. (All my friends now have Primitive Racing skid plates) Continue reading
Hey finally got my parts installed! They make the car look great! Also it feels great on the road, maybe not as stiff as before for tight corners but is amazing, love it so much. I am looking forward to hitting the dirt with my car now 🙂 Continue reading
From Hamish in Australia with a 2009 Forester!
Just wanted to give some feedback after taking the kit out for some offroading.
First of all the lift looks awesome, and really makes the vehicle stand out. The ride is better than stock with much less body roll, and it handles charging over speed humps a lot better.
From Ron B (in Canada, ‘eh)
I got a set of lift springs, new struts, and skid plates for my ’05 OBXT from you recently, and I just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying them! They are amazing and really transform the handling of my [outback] wagon – how it should have come from the factory. No more “saggy butt” and it goes with more confidence through any conditions without being too harsh. Continue reading
Jan 28, 2015: I’ll send more [pictures] when I change the tires. RIDES AWESOME!!!
Besides a Full Body Armor kit for back roads in his 2004 Forester XT, Wayne got FULLY ASSEMBLED KYB struts with King RAISING SPRINGS and our impact absorbing 3/4″ front and 1″ rear spacer kit. He received our PRIMITIVE RTAS (Rear Trailing Arm Spacers) and some camber bolts to complete the alignment. Big lift and good ride, hope to hear that the handling is top notch too.

I got my plate Tuesday and its already saved my A** twice, thanks for the fast service and the great item. If i had a decal i rep that thing hard on my ride… Continue reading
Sometimes we feel our name PRIMITIVE RACING can be a bit misleading, the racing part makes it sound like all we work on is WRX and STi rally cars but this isn’t the case at all, in fact the 2005-2009 Outback is the model we sell the most suspension parts for. The stock rear shocks and struts in particular need to be upgraded. Here are several emails that we received from CUSTOMERS who installed the King Springs and up-rated KYB struts on their Outbacks: Continue reading
