Thanks! I suspect some of the misunderstanding may have been because when I called, I was speaking to someone who speaks French and i was speaking English.
Bottom line is that this kit does not increase your minimal ground clearance, The only way to do it is with a taller tire. The kit does slightly raise the deck and bumpers. Even if you drop down to a 245/65/17 the difference is going to be less than 1/2 inch. My stock 18 inch tire is 28.6 inches. The 245/65/17 that he recommends here is 29.5 inches so all that will give you is a .45 inch increase in height or less than 1/2 inch. Hardly seems worth it to buy at least another $1300 in wheels and tires. That is a very expensive half inch.
He never did answer me as to exactly where he is seeing his claimed 9.5 inches of clearance.

I think the OB is absolutely gorgeous with that lift kit and wheel/tire combo. and to me, thats worth doing it. i couldnt care if it gave me more ground clearance or not. if you were trying to accomplish ground clearance, perhaps it should have been looked into a little more. I think from my experience this shop is pretty honest and knowledgeable about their products and service. sorry to hear about your negative experience strman.

On this car, isn't addressing the approach angles giving you way more offroad capability than increasing clearance (which is already pretty good?). With the approach angle improvements, I'm sure a lot more terrain is opened up.

Looks fantastic. If LP can provide a 1 inch or 1.5 inch lift would be great. With this I believe you don't need the multi link spacers for rear.
Just 1 inch spacers for front and rear, this would put the outback at 9.7 inches which is more than enough for most off pavement adventures

Before/after with same tires

We need to lowers the rear subframe.. help to maintain the original positioning of the rear wheels. Which is very useful to prevent rubbing when using larger diameter tires.

With 245-65-17 lift or no lift make no difference but for that you have to use proper offset
