Looking to run 28" tires on my legacy. Currently have 99 forester struts with stock spring but need additional lift and struts are shot. Leaning towards KYB struts and Ironman or King Springs. Searched a ton but found nothing definitive. Thoughts ? Appropriate model or part numbers appreciated...

I went on my 00 forester with kyb excel g, king springs and 1" strut lift. I Love it! What year is your leggy? Might have to drop the sub frame too with forester spacers.

No need to drop the sub frame but it looks better.  If you're using Fozzy struts get the Ironman springs.  They're half the price and have a better spring rate for off-road.

Found one Ironman dealer in the US. They are " out of stock for about 4 months". Lame. Looks like it's king springs. You guys have a link or something on the subframe drop ? Also, what's the best way to extend trailing arms to center the wheel ? I just used some wedges under the bracket with my current setup...
