First off, welcome to the site. Second, please don't double post, I deleted you other thread. Third, try doing some searching before asking your questions, there a number of active threads on lifting the Outback, here are a couple.

Have a search on Australian Subaru and/or Outback forums - they like lots of lift.

You can always use spacers in the rear to level up the suspension.

Paranoid Fabrication makes them.

Mudrat has been MIA for a while and banned from a few boards due to lack of product or returns of funds. Sjrlift.com is one and the only company with a web page at the moment that makes a lift for your ride.

Here is a 3 inch on a regular Legacy with the sjr 3 inch lift and Outback struts.

If your existing struts are good a lift kit is a good option for some people, depending on your goals with it. I like lifts just for the additional height and snow clearance, i don't really need off road capability or anymore than it has to begin with so the little bit of lost travel isn't a big deal for me.

SJR - i've bought and installed his stuff.

there's also a guy in portland Oregon - goes by Gloyale on many boards and has Highguys - he's on USMB regularly. He has some newer gen lifts (2000-2004 and maybe newer?) that SJR might not (or used to not have i think).
