    STI - getting it raised

    so I wana get my STI raised...never done it and know nothing about it.

    anyone ever raised their sti? I know people get it lowered (90% of the population), but this will be something a lil different...

    if you know anything, I am really curious- how much is a good raise, how much $$, any affect on performance, what kinda tires can handle it?

    to go even further...I am thinking add some bush lights at the front, does STI make these by any chance (stock lights would be nice) and some mudflaps!

    anyone got any comments/recommendations don't hesitate!

    You can raise it at home.. there are a few options (some are better than others). I forget the specifics, but I could ask my friend (or you could google). It will effect handling, and clearance [obviously]. There are also light bars to be had. I know Hella makes plenty of lighting options. It's all been done before, but I don't know the specifics off the top of my head.

    thanks brother

    check out dirtyimpreza.com. Many threads on lifting and auxilary lighting. Also nasioc has an extensive auxiliary lighting thread as well as quite a few lifting threads.

    This was going to be my recommendation as well.

    Rally armour mud flaps are easy to install I managed to do it without removing my wheels. You need a small screw driver for the back wheels. They have a few colors and they all look great for the price.

    I would look at some hella lights

    Also if you are raising you should look at a metal under tray. There are a few different sites that sell them. Any ways that would look bad ass if you are going for an off road look
