The tuner introduced a suspension lift kit for the Japanese Subaru Crosstrek crossover. You can increase the ride height for 549.95 dollars

Over a year ago, Subaru introduced the Desert Racer, a car that was created specifically for the 2019 Baja 500 rally. I must say that this is the coolest version of the Subaru Crosstrek crossover (or XV in other markets – editorial note) that we have ever seen.

With very “evil” off-road tires, high ground clearance and a great many different improvements to conquer off-road, Desert Racer looked like a buggy, ready to drive on tons of sand. Moreover, it is equipped with a 300-horsepower 2.5-liter Boxer engine, created by the famous company Quirt Crawford.

Subaru Desert Racer, apparently, was a source of inspiration for tuners and off-road enthusiasts.

Tuning company Crawford Performance introduced a suspension lift kit for the Crosstrek crossover. Available on the company’s website, the Crawford Performance CDR Series lift kit includes a 2-inch front suspension lift and a 1.5-inch rear lift. The aluminum spacer also has a corrosion-resistant design, and the anti-roll bars of the anti-roll bar retain the factory location of the swing rod. Moreover, the original Crosstrek crossover ABS sensors were not changed, as were the brake line mounts.

The Crawford Lift Kit comes with two 2-inch aluminum struts at the front and two 1.5-inch aluminum struts at the rear, six extension cords at the front, and four short struts at the rear. It is noteworthy that on the company’s website you can also find a detailed installation guide.
