Re: 2004 Subaru Baja Sport/Turbo (pearl/silver) - $5200 OBO Los Angeles, CA

Just for clarification, "sport" is the base model, not the fast one (for every manufacturer). "turbo" is the trim you have not "sport/turbo"

Re: Can I squeeze out another 1

I haven't been on Facebook in years ... Like 5+ at least. I'm not terribly concerned about axle life. They're relatively easy to replace and if I get at least 5+ years out of them I would be happy. I emailed ADF and he said I can go 4" as long as I have a front subframe spacer, steering shaft exten...

Re: Baja Turbo No Power over 1/3 Throttle Then Misfire at 4000 rpm

IF (and I say if) you are hydrolocked because of fuel, I would suspect injectors. For diagnostic starters, pull the vacuum hose from the FPR and see if fuel squirts out of the nipple. If that stays dry, consider (yes, consider, because we can't be sure over the internet - I've see way too many folk...

Re: Fixing sloppy shifter

Do you have the little spring that pulls the linkage sideways? Both my bajas are missing it and have sloppy shifters even though they're aftermarket and are otherwise tight. There's natural play in the linkage without the spring and no amount of bushings will help.

Re: Can I squeeze out another 1

clocking or indexing the bushings not the axles. when you change the resting point of the arms you need to loosen and retorque the bolts that hold the bushings to let the bushings settle at the new norm. Otherwise they'll be under torsion at rest and will tear sooner. Nowhere in primative's page is ...

Re: Baja Newbie in Oregon.

Strut spacers do lift the suspension, what exactly are you looking for? It's been covered quite a few times. the easiest thing applicable to all years is strut top spacers. If you have an 03, springs and struts from later years will provide some lift as well. King makes springs for the Bajas which a...

Re: Mass Air Flow Sensor ‘05 Baja Non Turbo location on engine?

Never trust the store, they're just reading the top-10 suggested things for you to spend money shotgunning.

always always get the exact code number and bring it to us. for each component with codes there can be 2-10 different codes for it and they each have different troubleshooting trees.

Re: Can I squeeze out another 1

What's "safe"?

I wouldn't go any further at all without spacing the subframe, you have to be darn near out of downward travel in the arms. You're already going to go through CV joints at an accelerated rate and unless you've clocked them, the bushings will tear soon too.

Re: Just bought an 03 Baja

Hard to tell in your pics if you're talking about the rear bumper support or the body... the support bolts in and should be available from any wrecker. the body... same but you're into cut and weld territory. The rear bodywork is unique to the Bajas unfortunately. Car-part.com, it's under "engine cr...

Re: Help reading Live Data and Freeze Frame on OBDII scanner

I see another problem: both your MAF and MAP readings are phenominally, improbably high. Like higher than can be read by the sensors... for example, if the sensor reads 0-5v, you're showing 25 in the data there. MAP = 700 doesn't make sense on any scale, even KPA that's 100 psi but a 25 or 3 bar map...

Re: Grille Interchangeability

Any grille from a 2000-2004 Legacy or Outback will fit on all model years of Baja. They mount the same way, use the same bolts, and have a near-identical profile. A Baja grille, however, will not fit on a Legacy or Outback without some modification. The Baja grille is slightly larger at the bottom ...

P0457 is for the evap system, highly unlikely to cause the engine to misfire/shaking.
