What parts are used for a body lift on 97 outback sports, and anyone have the specs?

forester struts and springs would be the better choice.
If you can't find Forester strut assys, get Outback '96-'99 struts and use '98-'01 Forester springs. Works very well.

1x2 or 2x2 Square stock is a good start.

Use all the spacer blocks and bolts from a 96-99 legacy Outback. You'll also need the lower control arm mounts, the steering coupler between the rack and the column, and some other parts, but that should do most of that.
Want to lift more without destroying geometry!
Then make lift blocks the same height as the factory ones for the top of the struts.

I have the plastic and some fresh struts. I've even secured a place to do the required metal work. Still need some metal tubing.
