It's like a Legacy Outback sedan.

I am sure I am in the minority here but if I could lift mine an inch or to without losing the handling I would love to.

That's because half the people on car forums these days are hipster retards that think stance and eliminating wheel gap at all costs is the coolest thing ever.

Functional lowering or lifting > Stance

All I can say is haha! That made me laugh. Thanks blizzard

I wondered when a small group of people would lift their legacy's. Makes sense in some ways to lift it half an inch to an inch. Need the right tires and rims though.

Eliminating the fender gap also means eliminating the "bottom of my car to snow and ice gap" in the winter. Why did I buy an AWD car in Cleveland again?

But "most" of our roads are decent enough for lowered rides. Except if you are in Logan or Sherman...streets suck over there.

I am... even though I'm currently dropped on Swifts and I think its pretty functional while being low enough, I'm still getting peer pressured to slam the car by another 2", get 25mm spacers and stretch 215 tires over my wheels :(.

I like my current height right now, even when I get coilovers in a few months I wouldn't drop the car more than the way it sits now.

Your car looks great. Please don't listen to those other voices.

I wouldnt lower our car unless I had a backup ride for the 6-10" snow storms we get. I need all the ground clearance possible. One of the Subaru service techs in this months msg even said he would raise his impreza in the winter when asked what miss he would do.

Jsmith 08-22-2012 07:09 PM

Like I said, I would love to raise mine an inch or 2.

hmmrdwn 08-22-2012 08:55 PM

It would help the approach and descent angles. Would also prevent curb stop damage. Would negatively affect mileage and handling to a minimal degree.
