I had custom softlines done up at a brake shop / warehouse. The fittings are a common metric size so they had plenty on hand. The softline was about $20 / foot. About another $10 / line in hardware. Hardlines I buy at Fleet Farm. They have the correct size fittings and diameter hardlines in stock.
As for sizing up what you need I just went in with an old male and female fitting from hardline to softline. Then just made sure what I was buying screwed in properly. Should be pretty easy to nab some from a junkyard

I have never done it on a subaru but on other 4x4s I have gone to my GOOD local parts store and used the brake line appliction catalog to find longer lines with the same fittings on either side.
sorry no specific info.
That is exactly what the 'ol boy at brake shop did for my Sub. It took him a few minutes, then he ordered them for me and sold them to me for cost. I gave him a five for his trouble. Later, Tim

I'll concur that you don't need them for a 3" lift. Mine extended out fine after I released them from the retainers and straightened them a bit.
