I'm thinking about lifting my '08 OBS, which is DD, what would be the best (cost effective or easiest) way to lift my car?

It depends on what you want the car to do. Do you need more travel or more ground clearance. If you want more bump travel, you run a taller spring like what TommySWRX did. If you simply want more clearance, you add chassis spacers. I will note that this can include strut spacers but also spacers that drop the subframe which keeps the suspension geometry the same. I don't know of anything exists for the newer chassis though. The cheapest option is simply the spacers that go on top of the strut, but realize that is only a partial solution. Normally you would include lift blocks for the subframe front and rear.

the strut spacers might be what i go with... i have [summer] wheels with a low offset (+35) and i rub over every bump with no cargo, so the extra inch should be a little more helpful, especially since i might be going on a nice long road trip in the next few months.

Also, what do all of you guys with bigger tires do about the speedo and odometer? I'm sure its probably way off. i have 205/60-16 on my car right now, and it seems a bit off.

I've just dealt with it, it doesn't annoy me at all. My tires are exactly 10% bigger, so if it reads 50, I'm going 55... if it reads 70, I'm going 77. Very simple for my situation.

yes you are correct about the tires, and that is stock suspension. only thing is i had to cut the front flaps(width wise) on the inside of the wheel well because the tires would rub against the flaps when your turned the wheel lol.
