bought LGT with a problem


Recommended Posts

I test drove a 05 5eat LGT limited and it drove good, the turbo spools nice. When I was driving it to my house it started smoking (oil/ coolant smell). Its got some mods and 67k. miles. The dealer said his master mechanic will fix it and will replace the HG or turbo if needed. Is it worth it to keep this car?

Its getting fixed now, apparently there was a leak on the camshaft valve cover. It drives nice so I figure I will keep it. Not to talk about a bunch of things in one thread but is there a thread or an answer on how to raise my suspension myself? I feel the previous owner lowered it a tad too much for colorado

OEM struts and springs for stock ride height.


Outback struts and springs for a slightly elevated ride height.


If you want aftermarket performance, that will take some noodling.


I'm on a bastardized hybrid suspension and I'm at about stock ride height although a little more evenly stanced front to back.


Tokico struts + spec b tophats + pinks on front


Tokico struts + oem springs + 3/8" spacers on rear

So I cant just adjust the ones I have? I guess ill save up for the oem ones, thanks man

What exactly do you have? I thought I read everything, but did you mention what suspension that you have? Anyway, if you have coilovers you can probably adjust the height. If you are on strut + shock combo can't adjust that.

Let us know what suspension u have and we can help to let u know if it can be raised or if it is just lowering springs. If it is just lowering springs on stock struts then you can put in OEM springs to get it back to stock height.
