My girlfriend is thinking she might like a little lift on her 2000 Outback. My thought is 1 inch spacers and 28 inch tires.

Would 1 inch spacers harm the camber on the car? Wondering as far as alignment/tire wear.

Would 28s or similar affect the automatic trans? longevity is the priority but would like to make the car a little more trail ready. Not an off roader, but something that can handle dirt roads and Wisconsin snow storms even better than stock.

After installing the lift you will need to get a suspension alignment. After installing King Springs and 1/2 inch spacers, I was able to align the suspension with no problems.

I have run 215/65R16 General Grabbers which are 27.5 inch diameter new and they didn't hurt my gearing enough to not be worth it. 28's might cause some rubbing issues.
