Hey y'all. Found a lot of great info on this site, and this thread in particular. I just picked up a 98 Legacy (non-Outback) and will be lifting with '05 Forester struts/springs. I grabbed some 16" rims from an Outback at the junkyard, and am looking at 215/65/16 General Grabber tires to do some offroading. Anyone have this combo, and do you like it? Would you have done anything differently? Any larger sizes that don't hit the spring perch?

Thanks very much

Do the earlier than '04 Forester struts, both front and rear, keep a '96 Outback at stock height? bolt up without modification? do not need brake lines tied up?

In other words, are earlier than '04 Forester struts a "straight swap" replacement for '96 Outback?
