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.
We put King Springs on KYB Struts in our car (GC Body Impreza -turbo) last Spring. [standard height springs/GR2 struts] ..First event was ice cross , second overall , next Trail of the Gnu rally (real fast) 2nd overall , finished the season with a third at Totem rally , good enough for 2 nd overall in the BCRally Championship . The 1st place car was running the same suspension … I am over 70 so not as quick as I use to be but this set up makes me look good .. It has no vices , very predictable.

We are real pleased with the guidance we got from Paul with this set up . The car has lots of other Primitive parts as a result and all are top shelf ..

We get asked this question pretty often and it’s not as simple as it would seem, Subaru’s don’t have very large wheel openings and even so the size of the wheel opening often isn’t even the limiting factor.
A lot of our customers are new to Subaru ownership having switched from bigger SUV’s or Trucks to Subaru’s because they have better fuel economy and are just simply more comfortable to drive but still have off road capability. Subaru has built its brand around their symmetrical All Wheel Drive system which performs very well in most conditions, it’s perfectly suited for snow, gravel, mud or sand but when trails get deeper and the rocks get taller Subaru’s just don’t have the clearance needed to make it through that washout or water crossing. We don’t want you to have to cut your adventure short or feel like you’re going to do damage to your vehicle so by popular demand we’ve worked continuously to develop products to lift your car without degrading the on road performance.
