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...

Re: Tire/wheel max sizes

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.

Re: BSW Needs Servicing

I have a 2018 Phev (canada) and saw the same thing for a couple hours, but it went away. Cameras were all clear/clean, so not sure what caused it.

Re: Head unit for Outlander

I had these android type units in my Subaru WRX. I would avoid any of them that have less than 4GB of RAM as they become very slow to use. You may also need to confirm that the wiring harness will match up with your specific existing head unit as the vendors aren't always familiar with the different...
