    Hello Jay, I know there are a few that have done it with spacers. You won't get much lift that way, though. Also, lifting throws the suspension geometry way out of whack (especially the rear). Read the epic "Ghost Walking" thread to understand what you are up against. The rear suspension has a passive rear steer designed into it for better high speed handling. This causes the rear wheels to toe in on compression and out on extension. There is enough movement that you can see the toe out if you raise the rear of the car off the ground and let the suspension hang at full drop. Basically, raising the car without putting fully adjustable links to correct the alignment will make the tail wag the dog even on dry pavement. http://www.subaruoutback.org/forums/...i-3x-tdck.html Look here for adjustable suspension parts (I don't think he did a lift though).

I see you commented on a thread back in 2011 and gave some good advice on the matter. I'm just wanting to know what you would reccomend me doing to achieve this. your help would be greatly appreciated
