Just picked up my new work car. A Subaru XTL, now to have some fun.
What should I do first, give it a 5 inch lift or put 31 inch rubbe on.
Just jocking, but is it possiable to lift (Just a little) ??

The older ones could. Cant see why the newer ones would be any different.

King Springs do a lift with 4 coils, no need for new shocks.Yokohama Geolander AT tyres in the next size up fit great under the wheel arches and a alloy sump protecter from Subiextreme is all you need to have fun.My mate has these fitted and he has been to places to the suprise of other bigger 4wd's and himself.

There is a fair amount of after market gear available for the Forester.

The biggest failing of the car would be the tyres - A/T tyres are available.
As far as a lift is concerned 'SubaExtreme' a Qld firm has the gear for this - they also sell front and rear replacement bars, sump guards etc. subaextreme

XTL ? - is that a luxury Turbo model ? - if so I hope it is an auto as they don't have low range - the auto is much better 'off road'.
