They really are the limiting factor. Now, EA82 axles can take a little more punishment on the angles. That is why not many lift the EA81 in the same manner.......search my friend which its seems you got that info.
Sleeving the front axle, well is one way to fix that issue, not really sure how many have even done that, but if you are a pro, it should be doable.

some folks have used some of those parts while doing a 5 lug swap, so there should be some threads out there in regards to the differences....

Just look into the EA82 front suspension swap.Already has longer axles and control arms.Then make a 2" block to lift the strut.A couple pieces of 2x2X1/4 tube works pretty good for lift blocks.The holes to attach to the lift block to the strut and the body need to be offset some degree.Normal subaru lifts offset the holes 7* per inch of lift (IN to engine).However a much smaller angle is needed for the lift with Ea82 suspension.On my 83 wheeler toy it has the EA82 suspension and a 2" block.But the block was drilled for 7* so I have a decent amount of negative camber...Im running 2wd front springs which are softer so its not quite as high as it should be in front but now it has something resembling travel
Stock EA81 suspension with 2" lift in front and torsion bar cranked up in the back scored a 350 on an RTI ramp.
just the addition of the softer front springs and the EA82 suspension bumped that up to 420.
then there is a couple mods I can do to the rear to bump that number up (not that 420 isn't a nice number )
