For extreme strength and reliability, we use 3/16” steel plates with ¼” solid center steel tube. Front spacers are MIG welded with six 4” welds. Rear spacers are MIG welded four times with 5” welds. Our Trailing Arm Spacers are laser cut 3/16” steel and MIG welded.  

Factory Alignment

To maintain factory alignment specifications Camber and improved Caster offsets are built into the steel spacers. – We recommend that you get an alignment after your install, as there may still be a human error factor when installing the camber bolts.  

Trailing Arm Spacers

We recommend installing trailing arm spacers. This keeps your tires centered in its factory location and prevents rubbing when installing larger tires.  

Powder Coating

We also professionally powder coat all of our products to prevent corrosion and to insure the highest quality of products on the market.  


All Metric Grade 10.9 Zinc Hardware is included in the kits!  

Rear height additions

We also offer a few different heights of Rear spacers to compensate for added load in the vehicle or level vehicles out, if they currently aren’t sitting level.  Added height is built in one solid spacer, no stacking of different spacers. Adding 3/8” compensates for mild loads/weight, + ½” more for excessive loads/weight.  


These kits are designed for Original Equipment Manufacture fitment. We cannot guarantee fitment on non OEM parts; strut mounts, struts, exhaust etc.  Recommend contacting us for fitment verification. Please note that a majority of our kits are build to order and may take 2-3weeks to manufacture.

    Absolutely amazing customer service. Patrick the owner will make sure that you get all of your products in a timely manner and have a smooth install. I have now purchased two lifts from ADF, one for my 1999 SF and now for my 05 SG and both times I received amazing quality products, and even better customer service.

    This is my third time ordering an ADF product, and each time I have been very happy with the quality of service, timeliness, and responsive support during the decision making process. As for this installation, I purchased a 1998 Forester 2″ lift kit with trailing arm spacers. Having done a 2004 Forester installation that was a crusty challenge; this install only took three hours from start to finish. I did the front first and referred to the SF PDF instructions which noted the spacer Front L/R orientation. When installed the logo’s point inward and are legible as you look under the hood. Angle inward like so: Pass Side L\adf___adf /R Driver Side. Removing one side of the sway bar end link helped a lot up front. One the rear I ended up removing both sway bar connections at the upper side of the end link, I did not separate the brake line, but rather did the careful trimming I have read about by using a hacksaw that allowed for lines to slip out of the newly made U while still allowing retention with the OEM clip. I used a jack pushing against a punch crossing two lug nuts, threaded onto the studs to help “kick” the hub into the correct angle. A drift to guide one of the suspension bolt holes is also useful. Wasn’t planning on giving detail in a review, but I figured any information is better than no information. I will be back for another 2″ kit in the near future and will be recommending ADF to anyone that encounters my Subarescues and wants to know about my build details. Thanks ADF!!
