It has a 1.5" lift and King springs; imported and installed by the original owner, from whom I bought it as a fixer-upper. I replaced the dead transmission, broken starter, retapped the 4 main bolts for the transmission crossmember/lift kit blocks, did the front brakes, repaired one of the fog lights, bought the deflector to cover most of the rock chips on the front of the hood, yanked the front sway bar, put some kickass wheels and tires (last winter's snow tires! LT215/75R15 Toyos) on it, cleaned most of the interior, and I'm making a skid plate (thanks Brian!) and polishing the headlights.

So what did you use to get the 1.5 lift?
Was it just the springs?

I'm afraid I wouldn't know as I've never driven a stock OBW. I'll try and compare them at some point but you might be better off inquiring about that on one of the Australian Subaru forums. Come to think of it, I should do that too since I might be asked about that by the potential buyers. :rolleyes:
