So given its a stock Sport Limited, it should have 205/50-17 tires stock.

Replacing them with 205/55-17 tires will increase overall tire height by 0.8" , increasing ground clearance by 0.4"

Here is a complete kit with 1.0" of lift. This kit is straight forward to install to anyone that works on cars. 1.0" is the max lift without significant suspension changes needed.

This would give a total of 1.4" of lift, then the alignment should be able to be set with the factory adjustments.

More than 1.5" of lift of the suspension would need longer rear trailing arms, and the front would need longer c/v axles (Crosstrek axles), or they may bind or separate, when flexed and turned hard, like very steep driveway entrances/exits
