Suspension on my '95 Legacy is pretty shot (well at the least the rear for sure) 

I keep hearing that Outback struts will bolt right up and lift the car about 1.5 to 2 inches. 

I think this is a great idea. But I feel like there is more to it?

Do I need outback springs? spacers? anything like that.

If anyone can give me any leads/video's/info on this swap. That'd be Great.

Outback struts are a direct bolt in and give an inch of lift. They are almost exactly an inch longer than stock legacy struts.

In the rear you probably want to replace the springs as well. The springs wear out with age/mileage and will cause premature strut wear.

Check the front springs for rust, if there is any chipping or bubbling under the paint coating on the springs you should replace those as well since they have a tendancy to break.
