I love those 118kw 2 litre engines!

Jaaa! Yum!
So "loving the 118kW" means you're not going to build a C63AMG eater?

Well, in Japan those 2 litres were tuned for 140kw, but that was for 100 octane fuel. Wife does not need to go that fast on the farm roads.

Thanks!
I was thinking about fitting Forester struts and springs for a 2" lift, but it is not that simple. Trailing arm brackets and swaybar endlinks and everything going with it is way more than I want to spend now.
Think I'll just settle for saggy butt spacers for now.

Go for a 10mm spacer (will fit on top of struts with no issues) and 216/65/16s :D

I take it the spacer fits on top of the strut before it is attached to the body

It seems that the rear has sagged quite a bit.
I got specs that you measure from the wheel arch to the center of the hub

Front spec: 387mm. Front Measured 375mm (12mm sag)
Rear spec: 376mm. Rear Measured 355mm (21mm sag)

I want to lift the car a bit and if I put a 25mm spacer in the rear, I will be just above factory spec.

I think I must get new coils for the rear, and at the same time put in a 25mm spacer kit in front and rear.
