From the AA site;
" EJ 1990-2005 Outbacks, Legacy, Forrester, and Baja, Imprezza

EJ series lift: This is the newest addition to the allied Armament family. It comes as 4" that replaces the factory 2.5" lift for the outback and 4" lift for the Legacy. It retains stock geometry in the front and adds minimal strain in the rear (almost none). It is based on lowering front and rear struts via strut extensions and lowering blocks for front and rear sub assemblies. (bolt on kit) " Has anyone actually done this lift? I'm wondering if there are any special tools required, or if it could be done by someone without a AutoShop full of stuff.

I've been asking them about that since January. The response two weeks ago was "no lift yet for the Forester", even though the web site claims it's existence.:-\

I posted to the other similar thread in the New Gen forum... since then I found one of the things I was referring to, the AA lift in a DARPA Challenge Subaru:

It's post #19 in this thread.

no lift yet for 2gen outbacks either! They wanted me to come out and use mine as a guinea pig....sounds great.... but I want tested versions for safety since it's the family car! I don't have another ride while they figure it out either!

I thought they were buying a baja to make a lift for (which would be the same as a gen 2 OB). hmmmm :rolleyes:

I'm not sure about that. Given the Baja already has a body lift stock. I don't believe it's a B12 chassis(not sure) I thought about just getting the Baja spacers and trying it ...on my outback!
