Re: Lift Kit installed

Rising tuning says that the https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08CBWGLVN camber bolts will fit the fronts. I'm not sure if these are what they include in their kit, as they forgot to put them in the package when they shipped. The ones i got from Tema4x4 look like the ones in the amazon link. The SPC 67455 p...

Re: Maximum Tire Size After 40mm Lift?

I'm on the 40mm lift kit. The rear control arms had to be replaced to get to a reasonable alignment spec. I'm currently running 235/60/18s on 8.5 x 18 rims - at the stock 38 offset. I have no clearance issues. I tried running 245/60/18 and while they generally cleared the wheel wells, on full lock t...

Re: Lift Kit installed

After reading this, I bought the 40 mm kit from rising and it doesn't fit. Passenger side CV interferes with the control arm. So it looks like i have a lift kit i can't use. probably 30 mm is as high as you can go. If you can post some pictures, I'll take photos of mine at the same angle to see if ...

Re: Lift Kit installed

Looks great and I am thinking of doing the same. I have ordered the kit and will likely install with new winter tires (also 235/60 R18s). Have you noticed a drop in EV range/MPGs? How about the impact on the speedometer reading? The lightest winter tires I could find at 235/60 R18 weigh 28 pounds v...

Re: Lift Kit installed

Thanks for sharing! Yes I have a come-a-long as well just in case, but normally we are a 2 vehicle group. With the front-country campsites all busy this year, the added accessibility to the back country sites has been a welcome change.

Happy PHEV'ing!

Re: Lift Kit installed

Of course, it's not a rock crawling, diff locking, mud, sand, and river crossing monster, but I've used it in deep snow, ice, and dozens of forest service roads here in BC's back country and it's been a great soft-roader. I'm coming from a line of Subaru's including a Forester, WRX, and 2015 STI, an...

Lift Kit installed

First off - thanks to BCBackRoader for taking the risk of trying the kit and sharing his experience with me. This was helpful! I bought the first kit off ebay from "Rising Tuning", however it was lost in the mail and never arrived after 4 months. I re-ordered a different kit from Tema4x4 which arriv...

No - there are several other forum threads on it, it's just not consolidated in one place.

Re: 208/240 volt charger suggestions for Canada (ie with CSA

I went with the Chargepoint Level 2 unit. It has a good app that allows you to monitor and control the charging. Around here in the BC lower mainland most of the public charging spots are also Chargepoint hardware so that app is very useful.

Re: Tire/wheel max sizes

From what i've read 235/65/18 fits without issue.

I have 245/55/18 and they fit, but at full turn lock there is a 1-2mm area of the inner fenderwell that touches the corner of the tire. It's still totally driveable thought.
