You have to change the diff in the transmission if you change the rear diff ratio.From your post I wasn't sure if you were doing that or not.The ratios front to back have to be within 1% to work right.

so you are going to tear apart a completely good 5MT to convert it to 4.44...... ? Or is the car already an automatic? IF so you need a 98 Forester tranny and rear end. And flex plate. Problem solved. 5MT is a completely different story.
Have you ever had a 5MT apart before? Do you understand anything about sideload on bearings and pinion depth and how to set up a ring and pinion? If not I dont recommend getting into what you are talking bout.
You have a 3 inch lift, meaning you might be able to fit ~27 inch tires under that car. A 2.2L with 3.9 gearing will turn those just fine. If you were trying to turn 29 inch tires with a EJ25D (where the power doesnt come on til 4500+rpm) then I'd say its time to regear.
I have 29 inch tires on my outback with 4.11 gears and a EJ25D and it has no issues getting up and going. Your car is gonna most likely have a EJ22E and they make their power at the bottom end. Just sayin look into what you are wanting to build a bit before you start talking about major surgery on a tranny.
Have you addressed the top hat issue with the struts yet? Legacy and Forester run the same size top hats on the struts, Impreza runs a smaller pattern.
