    Dodik's 09 Tribeca

    Picked her up on Saturday just a bit south of Rochester NY, 67k miles 7 passenger family hauler. For now I'll be mostly concentrated on selling the outback but once that's done some minor alterations will be made.

    Re: Dodik's 09 Tribeca

    I haven't looked it up, but the 09 is an EZ36, yes? How does that compare to your EZ30D, driving experience wise?

    Re: Dodik's 09 Tribeca

    well there is no comparison, this thing will rev effortlessly I am almost surprised how light it feels. The old outback has way more feedback, this one i am not used to yet, been riding bike to work.
    Engine is a lot more refined maybe its a 5eat thing but it feels like it can outdo my outback like nothing (whiles sipping 87 instead of 91)

    Re: Dodik's 09 Tribeca

    Thanks guys, i really like this one just the feel of it is really solid and the 3.6 revs so smooth.
    I haven't used a spare since i had a pontiac 9-10 years ago, always carry a small compressor and plugs.
    Well its already discontinued and mostly because it was mis-advertised in the beginning.

    Re: Dodik's 09 Tribeca Lowered

    installed front 05 outback springs as time was scarce I didn't take any exact measurements of the drop, but its about and inch, ride quality didn't change in any noticeable way, just more refined leveled look.
    in order to install outback springs you would also need outback upper spring perches, as the springs taper on the outback and not the tribeca.
    You can not use 05 outback struts as the knuckle is thicker on the tribeca.

    here some pics

    Yeah I got a couple of SLI stickers on her,
    well if you ever need the 3rd row seating then definitely look for one, otherwise H6 outback would be a better choice.

    Re: Dodik's 09 Tribeca

    no rear is stock, but is very easy to change if wanted to, like any multi-link subaru its a 3" diameter spring that can be bought in almost any length and stiffness

    I will be watching this thread and looking for ideas for our '08.

    Gotta say, I love the Tribeca a lot. For how big & heavy it is, it handles really well and is an extremely nice highway cruiser.

    I got to see this last week at the RI meet. The work done in the center console is so amazing and factory-like that nobody else even seemed to notice. Dodik, you have to post side-by-side before/after pics here.
    Oh, and those 20's look really good on there. It should've just had those from the factory.
