I have an 11 WRX hatchback that I've been interested in lifting 2-3 inches. I'm a total noob when it comes to cars, and I baby my car, don't really have any mods on it other than upgrades speakers, headunit/amp, and radiator. So, sorry in advance if these questions have already been answered, I've read through the post but couldn't piece together the answers I am looking for. With that said, what I'm trying to figure out is what the best way to go about a lift is (2-3 inches). I don't want to lose much handling in the process and I'm not sure if that's a necessary sacrifice I'd have to make or not. I don't have any sway bars in my car yet, I've been trying to find some used ones to save a little bit of cash. I don't plan on taking it off-roading, I just want a really versatile car and I feel safer in a car that sits up a little higher. My tires are shot so I'm ordering some DW continental extreme contacts. I figured if the parts for the lift are in my budget I could have the tires and the lift done in one go, I'd have someone else do the work as I don't have a garage or car-savy friends.


Also, none of the pictures on this website show up for me! There's just a thumbnail. Is there any way around that? It would help me out reading some of these posts.
