Subaru Brumby 2 Inch Lift – The first Subaru I owned, and the first one I owned, was an 89 Barmby. It comes with a set of 2″ raised rims, 14″ Speedy Desert Rats and EA81dc (dual carbs).
The first picture is from the day I brought him home. The next one about a week after I cleaned the rims and painted them white.

The first mod I did with it was fitting Kumho tires. This requires cutting the front fender to accommodate the large tyre. I also bought an aluminum bar and a 3 inch stainless steel sports bar.

After a while, I wanted more power so opted to convert EJ22, I bought a Subaru Liberty 90 instead. I wanted to do something a little different so I bought a FT4WD EA82 box with a central locking differential, I found another 5 speed PT4WD. Use a low frequency PT4WD (1.59 to 1 ratio) on the FT4WD transmission sandwiched between the EJ D/R 5 speed housing. I call it the Tri-hybrid drive. This combination got me a 5-speed transmission, no EJ shift disc, using an EJ clutch and central locking differential along with the best low-end available.
I changed the handles and the radius bar. Cutting the handles and lengthening them by about 20mm gives me about 0 degrees of camber, and the radius bars that push the wheels forward make for a better wheel.
I also found a set of 6×139.7 performance Superlites. They are 15×6 with 25mm offset. These wheels are also available as 4×140, but at US$170 for 4, I can’t pass it up.
With the switch and the new EJ battery I put in there, I had a bit of a problem with the starter cable running through the top of the battery. It eventually eroded and started to burn.

I bought my first Subaru in 2005, it was an 89 Barmby, red with flavor. I picked it up, mounted a 27″ Kumho MT. After a while I replaced the dual carb EA81 he had with an EJ22 latch on a custom transmission that used an EJ D/R, low range EA82 box. 5sp and RX central locking diff.

Subaru’s improved Brumby was introduced to Australia in 1984 and you would think that after all this time there would be very little left. It’s not, and simplicity is key.
Unlike Subaru’s L-series passenger cars (which are now almost gone), the Bramby engine omits overhead camshaft technology and is stuck with overhead valves for ease of maintenance. Even when the sedans and wagons switched to fuel injection, the Brumby kept its old carburetor.
All of this has contributed to a vehicle that can be easily serviced with no down time going from farm to dealer and many still running cars that have crossed the 500,000 km mark with just one rebuild. muscle.

The downside of sticking with old technology is that the four-speed transmission makes the highway rough and less fuel-efficient than it could be. However, the 4WD transmission is dual range and helps the low ground Brumby get in and out of places it can’t really go.
The inside is also sparse and plain; Vinyl seats and rubber floors with manual windows. Most don’t have air conditioning and only the Sport-of-the-mill with its removable roof panels has a cassette player as standard.
Some Brumbys will sit higher than others as owners notice the suspension adjustment points give about 30mm more ground clearance. acceleration and premature tire wear.
Rust is rarely a big deal with Brumbies. This is partly due to their effective rust resistance and because their limited clearance prevents use onshore.

Constant Velocity (CV) connections are prone to failure and the upper valve train needs to be adjusted regularly to minimize noise. A new water pump every 100,000 km with a radiator flush will keep the overheating under control but overall these cars are mechanically immortal.
Scratches are often visible on the bottom, with crushed exhaust pipes and catalytic converter damage on ULP models. Check to make sure that the rubber boots on the rear drive shaft and the front accessory joints are not damaged.
The Brumby price is still high for a car of its time, but $5000 would warrant a very good later model with bumpers and maybe even a coveted rear roof.
