We'll let todds down lightly. I think the only people who has blueprints of a solid and tested true lift kit are BYB and PK Davis. John (mudrat) knows how to lift sube's, and he could probably build a lift for you.
As far as blueprints, you'll probably need to make some yourself. Its not that difficult to lift a sube, its manufacturing the blocks.

I agree with the statments above. Unless you really know what your doing with custom fabrication you are going to be spending a lot of time and money with just trial and error before even getting a lift you wiould be happy and safe with.

Todd is who taught me how to wheel subarus waaaay back. He's pretty familiar with the ins and outs of these things. I believe there are more than 30 in his yard in various shapes and conditions.

use 2x6 tubing and cut into 2x2x6 you will need 14 total for your brat that 10 in the front (5 on each side) and 4 in the rear (2 on each side)
drill holes in both ends of all 14 blocks use the orignial bolts and bolt all 10 blocks in place in the front flat sides faceing towards the front the 5th block on the inside will have the flat side facing the tire
use 2x2 tubing and measure and cut to fit in between the blocks and weld them in place conecting all 5 blocks together
do the same in the rear except you will also run a piece across conecting both sides
You will have to buy 14 nuts and bolt for the bottom of the lift
you will use 2x2 tubing and cut a piece and conect the front of the lift to the rear
so when all is done you have built a sub frame that is solid and will not rock back and forth
that just the basics theres a lot more involed in building the strut towers the rear shock mounts so you can run bigger shocks and even dual shocks if you wanted too
and re building the rear suspention out of 2x2 tubing
DO NOT USE 7" bolt like some people on the board thinks i did
I personaly would not trust the 4" or 5" bolts that come with the byb/pk lifts
