struts you've got.
But unfortunately one of the aforementioned companies is no longer in business...
I just don't remember which
And you'll need some negative offset wheels so that you don't hit the strut tops.
I'm not sure how far you need to go outward, but its a pretty good amount.

Lift is not gonna be your only issue running tires that big.
Subafreak is running 33's on his legacy and I am sure he is lifted more than 6" Plus he has an xtra xfer case and such to go with it.
I am gonna be running 35's on mine with a custom built suspension, but to get good travel i would say my "lift" we be in the 15"-20" range, maybe more.
Some of the brat, and ea guys are running 33's as well with 6-10" of lift.
Search around a bit. It's not gonna be easy but it is do able.

But with a 3" or 4" lift you will have no problem clearing that size tire and will be great for wheelin.
I have lift 3" and 4" kits for your car ready to ship. PM me for details

i am aware ther will be seriouse mods involved and i dont intend on keeping the outback struts. i will try to put up pics if i can get any on here of what i have done.
What do you mean?
The outback struts are actually a lot better than the stock lego struts.
They have a higher strut top and have more travel.
Just adding a lift your car and wider offset wheels would probably fix most of
your clearance problems...
And as for cutting and bashing fenders, its done on here all the time without
any major detriments to the car.

it will have to be pretty much completely custom. you'll need to space the hub down away from the strut, to do this you'll need to put the bottom bolt on the strut through the top hole on the knuckle, and then put some lengths of 1/4" steel along the outsides with 3 holes in them to reinforce the whole assembly. And then finish it off with some ~1.5" wheel spacers, as that strut isn't going to fit inside the rim anymore.
search this section for my thread entitled "BG on 31s" for some pretty detailed pictures of it.
