Default How to: Lift Your 2018 Crosstrek

Hey everyone! My friend Blake and I filmed a DIY install of the ADF 1.5" lift kit for my car. Hope this helps anyone who is thinking about doing it themselves.


After the lift I installed the Method 502 (15x7+15) wrapped in the BFG KO2 (235/75/15)

Let me know if you have any questions!

Really love the look. what was the total cost? And how much does it affect the gas consumption?

Thanks.

I couldnt really say on the gas compared to stock, I only had 350 miles on the car before the lift.

The lift kit itself is something like $560 or so.

They do not have a 4" for the 2018. I heard ADF was working on one for the 13-17 model but you would have to email them.

mostly just pulling your leg and seeing if anyone is here, 4" would be ridiculous.... ridiculously amazing! there have been some insane lift jobs tho (check link)
Im just going to go with the kit you got in the video.
