Bought the car in Hamilton, drove her back to Auckland and it handled like crap (in my opinion), I had to remedy that asap!

Have you had your D2s certified? If so, how simple was the process? Did they snag you on anything else? Wondering whether I should go down the adjustable route...

Yup - mine felt like a boat!

No cert - I haven't got around to it yet but its next on my list!

I would recommend adjusties - at least then you can match the height better (front vs rear)

Late to the party and didn't read whole thread.. but didn't you just turn the an Outback into a Legacy? geninue curosity here no trolling

Sorta - It's on adjustable suspension for a legacy with legacy bumpstops.

This thread here outlines what exactly is different between outbacks and legacys suspension wise (there's a surprising amount of parts which differ!)

Am I the only dude that likes his Outback at the stock ride height lmao? Also Adikt my man, how did you go about blacking dem tail lights?

Used the vht tint spray. Got a can from repco. Be careful with it though - easy to **** it up. I'd advise taking the tail lights out to complete it also (simple to do)

Isn't that illegal man? I actually have aftermarket housings on mine

Most good things are illegal these days. I duno lol. Just thought it was illegal if too dark. I preferred the clean look of the factory lights so took the tint off which is also a pretty easy job.

Mine is going to get slightly taller because the tyre I want isn't available in 225/60R17... Have to go 225/65 or 235/60. Could also go 235/65R17 but I think that exceeds 5% diameter increase.

Without lowing the centre of gravity your best bet would be upgrading the sway bars, links and bushings as ADIKT mentioned. Apart from that I'm not too sure how else you would be able improve the handling.
