My tires in the front really like to pick up when I accelerate on 235x75x15 and a 4" lift. stock struts and springs. Any way to correct this lifting because it wears my tires on the outside a lot faster than it does on the inside.

King springs helped because they were a stiffer spring but mine still lifts up a enough to wear the outside a bit . what is the degrees of the cut for your front strut lift blocks?

I think Ea82s are cut around 15-17°. There's really No way to avoid it, every lifted Subaru I've seen or had has done it. Your alignment could be off as well.

Its the nature of how the FWD works when lifted.  Especially when you have the sway bar removed.  Mine are cut at 17º and it still lifts pretty bad when i get on it.  You can leave it in 4WD or just accelerate slower.  You already have accord springs which probably helps a little. Like Skylar said, I don't think there is a real good solution besides a transfer case and running it in 2WD rear.
