Is there any way to adjust the steering wheel so its closer to me?
 
Hi,

I guess i have long legs and short arms because I find driving my 05 legacy a little uncomfortable. when i have my legs at a comfortable position, the steering wheel is too far away.

I am wondering if there is a way to move it closer to me by an inch or two. i guess i can't use spacers because of the air bag and the light/wiper spokes will be too far away.

Any ideas anyone?

new aftermarket steering wheel + Hub + Quick Release

just saying...probably not exactly the solution you are looking for

Install telescoping steering column. In USDM was available MY2008-MY2009.

Mother of god. I never knew.

Are all 08/09 Legacy/Outback trim levels equipped with this?

I need to start putting together a parts list.

You could always put blocks on the pedals...like when you were learning how to ride your older brothers bike and you couldn't reach the pedals. I'm the youngest of 4 so I always got hand me downs...

The earlier LGT didn't came with telescope columns?

I HAVE THIS EXACT PROBLEM!! I'm 5' 10", and even with the telescopic steering column the wheel doesn't come far enough back to a comfortable position.

I'm pretty sure everything above the extreme base 2.5i had it. 2.5i Special Editions at least have it.

I believe they all do, yes. My 09 2.5i SE Outback had it.

I agree with the earlier, time to pull a parts list!!

I never knew this was wanted by so many people. Its like my extendable arm rest. When I drive sometimes my elbow hits the button and it comes up. I wanna rip the ****** off.
