I have a 96 Legacy L sedan, AWD, and would like to lift/increase the ground clearance by an inch or so for a trip to Death Valley.

I thought that there used to be some spring spacers that could be easily installed and removed without removal of the springs so that I could just leave it raised for this trip on dirt roads and remove them when I return home. I have made the same trip before in the same Legacy and scrape the undercarriage and catalyst a bit, and increasing the ground clearance by an inch or so would be a good improvement. Any ideas?

You could try spring spacers/helpers. I wouldn't leave them in permanently, but for a quick trip they shouldn't hurt
