Look at www.subarubrat.com and he may have pics of how he setup his own lift kit.
Generally what I would suggest is to first understand the basics of lifting, is to get a "PK Davis" lift from www.ozified.com . Once you understand how and what needs to be lifted on a Subaru can you really make a decent lift.
I think I am a PK person for life though... unless I choose to go higher, then I am going to "Mudrat79"
Basically you extend the struts on the front from one end or the other, drop the engine cross member, the rear of the front subframe (3 bolts on each side on EA81's) then lower the rear mustache bar and trailing arm assy.

The CVs retain the propper angle if done correctly. The engine is dropped 3" along with the Tranny. If you lift the car more than 3-4" then you need to think of shift linkages and extend brake lines etc.
I believe the EA82's even have a tranny crossmember that is dropped as well.

Unbolt everything and put blocks between them when you bolt it all back up! :-p
And the Ozified lifts come with instructions.
