Subaru Impreza Ground Clearance

Ground clearance (also known as Ride height) measures the space from the minimum tip of the auto’s undercarriage and the mark of the tires’ contact with the smooth area. However, the maker of the model might adopt slight tricks to the regular method to claim fancy result implying the legitimate space from the shock absorbers, the engine oil pan or the muffler to the ground could be briefer than detailed in the official characteristics.

It is no wonder while choosy shoppers opt for an enlarged ground clearance to escape trouble when parking near the curbs or running through the rugged countryside. The true ride height of the model alters between 130 to 165 mm depending on the year of creation and equipment. Note that a well- laden auto will surely give up about 1 inch of ground clearance.

Luckily, the model ground clearance can be uplifted with spacers for shock absorbers to get the auto rest higher off the ground. While relishing a higher model, you lose a piece of the original balance and flexibility in angled turns. On the other hand model ground clearance can be trimmed for the sake of enhanced handling and stability.

There a number of ways to increase ground clearance. When it comes to lifting or lowering your Subaru Impreza you can choose between bigger tires, a leveling kit, coil spring assisters, coilovers, airlift suspension, suspension lifts, etc.
