blokespeed,
I have a set of stock BE GT Springs that will probably fit on your outback and lower it to a very nice ride height. What year is your outback?

I don't have one, but I was thinking about getting one for the winter, instead of driving my WRX.I have not seen lowering springs for outbacks for sale.

just get a set of tein s-techs
someone has a set for sale for $75 get some impreza tophats and go to town
thats teh setup i have
well i have WRX KYB's on mine so it sits even lower.
as for the "lots of people have" i know of 2 others besides myself. i have pics if you wanna see the drop. my future plans include some AGX's cause i need to stiffen up the rear a little. if you get WRX/Impreza struts it will lower it even more, the outbacks get their extra height from different strut mounts.

blokespeed - We offer lowering springs specifically for the Outback w/o air suspension.

spdracr00 - the Impreza x-over solution is not available on all years of Legacy chassis, only the BD/BG & BC/BF chassis. The newer BE/BH - up have different rear suspensions.

I have seen the 2000+ years lowered once or twice. The nice thing about the legacy outback versus legacy gt or L is that the outback tire height is taller from the factory, so you can do a +2 and still have a decent amount of rubber on the wheels...
