Default Lifting 00 legacy Outback

I want to lift my outback, but im unsure if its really worth $500 for a 2 inch lift kit and lower link spacers. 1 inch is much better at $170, but im worried that wont make much of a difference.

So, what's the question here? You want to lift it but don't like the pricing. I understand that. But, did you need help finding parts or something?

Or a better question, what are your goals for the car? What do you plan to do with it?

Well i have a couple goals. I want to go mudding in mild conditions. And i want to be different, around here EVERYONE lowers cars. I also want to lift it for camping and stuff like that as well. So my question is if 1" is enough, or if i really need the 2" lift.

If you plan to stick to dirt trails on your camping trips, then I think you'll be fine with the 1" lift. It never hurts to be higher though. Also, if I'm not mistaken, I believe your struts have the spring perch that sits high so you can fit some taller tires in there to add some more clearance.

How did you lift your car? I was thinking the cheapest way would be spacers, but would new springs or struts work better?

Spacers would be the cheapest. Mine, I bought new 04 forester xt struts, Rallitek Forester Lifting springs, 1" strut top spacers, adjustable lateral links and trailing arms, and a 3" Trailing Arm spacer. Mine was a bit costly because I went with all new parts.
