I'm curious about the fitting of the Liberty engine crossmember & LCA's

Well done AndrewT!
I bet your glad the day has finally come when you can have a licenced semi practical yet ridiculously customised subaru offroader! Congrats on persisting through all the headaches and custom things that others (like me) couldn't be arsed doing. I look forward to driving past your work tomorrow to eyeball it in the flesh!

As far as I know I was the first to do this way way back with the first Monsterwagon, as part of the huge 6" lift kit. There are photos etc in my other Monsterwagon thread I think. It's just a matter of making the lift blocks where the radius rod normally mounts in a way that presents mount holes in the right place for the liberty control arms to bolt in. I did a pretty terrible job, it was just a proof of concept but it worked great.

This time around I was just going 2" body lift, my time was severely limited, and I wanted it done right to avoid re-doing it again later. Found someone local who'd made a similar concept lift block/adaptor setup (but way way nicer than mine!) for 2 other people so got him to make me some too. He also did the engine crossmember blocks with offset holes for me too (last time I slotted the holes in the actual crossmember - offset lift block holes is a better idea). These pieces are still in R&D so I can't say who did them at this stage.

Holy flying duck balls! Not only do we have a H6 L series on the forum but we've got a blast from the past drop by... I haven't seen Subafury on here for ages!

Good times.

I'm also toying with the idea of the liberty crossmember setup from the same local... Pipe dream but we'll see

I'm still waiting on these engine bay pics

Cheers

Bennie

Nice one mate! you'll have to bring it out fishing some time. I took a brief drive in a h6 fox a few weeks back. Very smooth motor, nice and powerful in the sand. 181hp in a L body should be sweet!

Regards

Doug
