Lift kits
« on: April 08, 2014, 09:03:01 PM »
Does anyone know who does cheap lift kits these days? I would like a 2" lift for my '84 2nd gen leone wagon.
Thanks

No one I know of. Back yard Boys apparently still do kits but from what I've heard its next to impossible to get in contract with them. Id be worried about giving them money before seeing the product in my own hands.

Are you in Australia? I think there are still a couple of places in the states that sell cheap kits.

Its hard to do a cheap lift kit
The cheapest aluminium 50x50 solid I could find was well over $100 you then have to turn that into a lift kit!
Lots of drilling. I made my own but to make one to sell would not be cheap even at minimum wage!

2" lift kit ( no extension ?) here - not mine

http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/coffs-harbour-2450/other-parts-accessories/subaru-brumby-lift-kit/1047903125





another ??" lift kit on ebay - no bolts ?

subawreck in adelaide will also provide but you may want to try to neg on the initial asking price.

or cr#######rd still make them for MY's at $455ish Inc Postage ( add $?? for correct extension) they would be better value than the one above - contact Jeff - I found him fine to deal with.

I missed out on both of those but I check Ebay often so maybe I will find one.

What is that last one that you mentioned?

C r o s s b r e d

Not sure why, but the forum software censors the word...

Theres a guy willing to make a batch of lifts for $500 ea with enough interest. His name on the facebook Brumby/Brat groups is Rohan Maxim. It is Maxxair http://offroadingsubarus.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=82 on here but he doesn't come here often anymore.

Odd that crossbred is also censored on this forum... I thought that was just an ausubi thing!

Cheers

It must be an American thing, its not in the black listed words so it must be programmed in the forum software
