Unfortunately this Subaru will never be a glamourous vehicle.
She was bought to drive many many hours. (40,000km since February)

She was bought to go through the harsh Northern Alberta Gravel / Not Gravel roads.

Going down would result in MORE grounding out than I already do.

Going up, would be greatly appreciated if you could offer knowledge in terms of parts. Cause my dealership has been useless.

Not sure with how to raise but throw some used 16's on there that you wouldn't care about getting scratched etc. Can pick up a set I'm sure for under 200 and then toss some bigger tires on. That will help in some tight situations.

I usually wouldn't recommend it, but I've read a few really good threads on NASIOC about rally type setups that will probably have the info you are looking for.

Thanks guys, i've been looking through those forums.

It's my company's car (go taxes!), the tires are getting replaced later in the month.

I much enjoy this vehicle, my last vehicle was a 2000 Ford F150... and this just feels like my car :D haha.

I would look into 08 Impreza Outback Sport springs (factory springs should give you some lift and should be cheap not to mention covered under warranty since it's a factory subaru part)

-- see if someone on here with an OBS wants to trade? --

additionally if you're in dirt that often, I would recommend some cheap snow tires to help with traction

ALSO:

get a rear diff protector:

and I would recommend a skid plate once they become available (rallyarmor.com -- they're still working on one for the 08 models)
