Not the standard strut lift question for a Legacy

Clearance where? There should be an unusually large gap at the wheels/wheel wells that would tell you it's taller than stock. Got a pic?

Check the part #'s on the struts themselves. Fronts will be 235633 and rears will be 335021 if they have been changed to to OB struts.

from where the strut bolts to the steering knuckle (for the front), if it's an OB or forester strut it'll be a few inches from that bracket to the bottom of the "champaign glass" cup (lower spring perch). if it's legacy it'll only be like an 1-1.5" between there.
see pic, mounting bracket at bottom, and spring perch (in profile it kind of has that inverted funnel shape)
BTW, where are you measuring to (rear differential, bottom of the body, front bumper, etc.) from the ground? and are you on flat/level ground?
8" from this measurement seems reasonable for a legacy.
When they measure "minimum ground clearance" I think it's from a catalytic converter or maybe a CV joint going into a hub. . .

here's to add to my previous post. This is a front (legacy style) strut and a taller (OB style) front strut side-by-side
shorter legacy on left, taller OB on right
See how the lower spring perch site down lower/closer to where the strut mounts in the steering knuckle?
