I've owned 3 subaru's and have been wanting to lift every one of them. Now I'm on my 4h Subaru and I want to lift it.

I don't want to get a suspension lift mainly because i dont want to go through cv-axles. I mainly have one question. How good is a body lift? and How easy is it neccessarly to make and install? Also, if i do a body lift do i still need to do an alignment adjustment? ok thats more than 1 question :-P

is it neccessarly as easy as bolting in spacers like here:

I'm on a rather /tight/ budget but, i have access to a welder and some steel. I was thinking 2 - 3".

Oh By the way I'm working on a '88 GL, EA82 Wagon.

You wont go through Axles and you will not need an alignment, all it does is shove your tires down 2". It takes me about 2 hours to put the whole thing on, and Yes it is as easy as bolting it up just like that, that is a 2" lift, 3" you have to drop all the crossmembers and that is a far more involved deal..................
