Kartboy aluminum Sti rear endlinks for lifted Subarus! Lengthen your links!

Hey!... Welcome back for another #modmonday! Where I give you my take on an installed part on my car. This week we will take a look at @K4rt3oy's rear endlinks for my 2006 Forester Xt. They were installed over a month ago and have been working well ever since.


After lifting my Forester I found that the rear end links would need to be upgraded. While looking around I decided to give an adjustable heim link a try. They lasted for one year due to the the weather and so it was time to try out something else.

New and old.

With a bevy of endlinks available I was a bit overwhelmed on what to choose, until Tom from Kartboy decided to weigh in with his options. After talking back and forth, we decided to give the 04-07 STi links a try.


Straight from Tom, this is how they come!

Kartboy's 04-07 STi links measure in at 3.625 inches versus the Forester's factory length at 2 and half inches. This sounded like a winning combination for me and this is what is equipped to the Fxt.

Installation was very straight forward and fitment worked out very well for my 2.5" lift. Issues I had with the sway bar rotating hasn't occurred and cornering flatness has been improved. Being that this vehicle isn't made to corner, it is just an added bonus.

Given Kartboys great product offerings for Subaru I was pretty confident in these working well. I have had these aluminum links installed on the Sti for last 3 years with no issues, whether on the street or auto-x course they have been amazing.


Installed and ready for action
