I've been hauling around a lot of weight in my '00 Outback Impreza recently, and when I do the rear end sags pretty badly.

I'd like to install a lift kit or some kind of suspension that can handle the extra load.

Has anyone had experience with this kind of project? Any products recommended?

Get a set of paranoid fabrications saggy butt spacers - we had these on our old '96 OBS & they worked GREAT!
The thickest spacers still fit with the stock strut mount studs & give the OBS a slight rake.

dunno about fitment - maybe someone here does - but I have the springs from my 06 WRX wagon avalable. pulled off with less than 1900 miles on them.

The best way to go is with longer/heavier duty springs if the lift is not just for looks. Using a spacer doesn't increase the travel of your rear struts, and you'll still bottom out just as much carrying a heavier load. Upping the spring rate or spring length will keep the back end high and allow more weight to be added without hitting the bumpstops as often.
