” The setup is fantastic Paul, it feels like a totally different car.  Thanks so much for the guidance and help.      Regards,  -Ben ”

Ben ordered KYB struts (with up-rated rear struts) and paired with the King Raised Springs on his ’06 OBXT and appears to love it.

” Hey, I just wanted to say that I received the kit and got everything installed. Everything was spot-on and fit up perfectly. I loved how each different stage of the install had its own separate set of instructions, parts list, and photos. It was really nice to never second guess which hardware to use or what parts went where. Install was smooth sailing. Thank you so much for putting the extra time and effort to get such a great product on the market! ” -Eli  purchased  2″ Lift Kit  3/19

I get asked what makes a PRIMITIVE LIFT kit superior to other SPACER ONLY (cheaper) lift kits on the market.  The answer is pretty simple.  Our lift kits are designed around HEAVY DUTY King Springs.  This makes our lifted car HANDLE much better than a spacer only lift, AND the heavy duty nature of the springs included with the kit, allow for much more load with less sag.  Perfect for those doing OVERLANDING and loading the vehicle with people or gear or both!  Also great if towing or putting any weight on the back of the car (spare tire or gas cans, etc)  The other advantage of our kits is that they come COMPLETE with everything needed to lift and correct alignment.  You don’t have to seek out those missing pieces like other “low cost” lifts. Our kits include springs, spacers, shock extensions, PRSS (Primitive Rear Subframe Spacers), brakeline brackets, and new heavy duty rear strut tops (reinforced) in some kits.

The spacer only lifts tend to give pretty vague handling and a soft ride (which is not always bad)

We have been in business for 21 years and have plenty of experience in designing, developing and manufacturing the best Subaru accessories out there.  We carefully select the springs and components for our lifts for best ride, handling and longevity of the car.  Most Subaru dealers buy our lifts that you see in the showrooms.

Look for our brand new Ascent TRIPLE ARMOR to come out soon.  It will blow you away!
