Suspension / Re: SH Rear Suspension (Again)
« on: July 11, 2018, 03:35:33 PM »
I must say that after changing my rears to standard non-turbo SH springs and dampers, the handling of my XT is up to scratch. I was told the KYB units were similar to the Subaru OEM units, but in capacity, not up to the job. The SLS units were super crap, but with the stiffer X springs, the rear seems a lot more planted and I could load a lot more, without the ass dragging and feeling like I had a caravan on the rear! The biggest mistake Subaru ever made, was fitting that crap to our cars!

Tick Tock...waiting for the darn thing to arrive! In the meantime a temporary fix as the one above has been made... Gauge just stuck inside with velcro, until the electronic version arrives...

I was shopping for wheels in Qatar last year and was told there's no longer an XT available. I almost beat the salesman down, right there and then! Turns out he was not talking rubbish!

Well, hold on to your old XT's they might just appreciate in value!

Sad, very sad indeed!

Ja, Qatar is ver, boodskappe vat seker maar lank om deur te gaan  ;D

Wat maak jy daar?

Al daai sand behoort mos 'n lekker plek te wees om met jou Fozzie te speel.
Jammer ek kan hom nie hier gehad het nie! Lokale Fozzies net N/A, LHD! Ry maar 'n Pajero petrol en byt my onderlip as die bleddie ding nie wil wegkom nie! Ek werk die afgelpe 2 jaar hier as bestuurder by 'n equipment huur onderneming. Ek is te wit en te oud vir SA...
My pa ry nou maar in die Noord Kaap met myne! Kon hom nie weggee vir die geld wat hulle my wou betaal nie! Hou hom dan eerder in die familie...

Ek benodig iemand wat kodes kan kanselleer, weet jy van iemand in Kimberley/Bloem area?

I need the same thing done, but in Kimberley (I know!) anyone????   ::)
Have you always been in Kimberley?

Sorry, I'm only replying now, I now live in Qatar and the vehicle is with my father in Kimberley. I grew up there, but have lived in Port Elizabeth for 20 odd years... Now it's the Sandpit!

Thanks LSS, I've looked at the site suggested, but these guys sell pretty serious kit, looks like mostly professional racing driver gear, etc. Also not scared to charge! I can get a fairly comprehensive OBDII connected meter from the US, for like $60 plus shipping, so perhaps I'll fit a temporary solution until this arrives...

So the OBDII still runs off the stock water temp sensor? Can you set alarms on it? Please post a link if you do order?

Yes, got one one-Bay for $35 that displays all the OBDII info on a LED screen! Plug and play unit... hope the link works!

Buy a Prosport water temp gauge and plumb it in.

https://www.performanceproducts.co.za/121-performance-series

The more expensive one has a warning light and beep as well.

On my TDL as well. Question however is where is best position to put the sensor.

Already have the oil pressure gauge, working a treat.

Easiest solution is installing something like an UltraGauge.

Thanks. Looks like a great idea, but I need something quicker than 6 weeks delivery from the US! I'll definitely order this also...

Has anybody here ever built a heat gauge into an SH? I just had to have my engine overhauled, after a radiator cracked and I blew both head gaskets because when the red light to indicate overheating came on, it was too late!

I would try for 2nd hand, otherwise RockAuto, but looks like you're in for around $100.00 plus postage +- $30 - 40... I've heard that either certain Nissan or Toyota ones, are the same, not sure how true that is...

Good luck!

They'll probably whistle, the all too well-known mechanic's whistle when they see a Scoobie, but get their opinion anyway...

What is a mechanics whistle? That typical whistle that says "here's big shit"?
That's the one! It's normally accompanied straight after by: "Nee meneer, die goed kry jy net by die agents...!"

I would take it to a place like Drivelines, or a recognised CV specialist and ask them to have a look. They'll probably whistle, the all too well-known mechanic's whistle when they see a Scoobie, but get their opinion anyway...

My 2012 Forester is driving me crazy. I 'think' I have narrowed the squeaking down to the rubber supports that are supposed to keep the back door firm and steady, but HOW DO I SILENCE THEM?

Check the long rubber stoppers can actually screw in and out in order to adjust the "boot" door. Slight adjustment there would seal better and make the door more solid.
