Welcome to the USMB. 

I'm going to move your thread to the new gen forum where it should get some more attention.

It all depends on what you use to lift your car, what do you plan to use?

On my 99 OBW, I lifted 1 inch by switching to 235 X 70 X 15" size tires. Car drives just fine.


Correction, I upgraded to size 215 X 70 X 15, not what I firsted stated above.

You won't notice a difference with a 1" lift.
I lifted my sedan 4" and put Outback sway bars on it and it handles better than when it was stock.
