Post lift. Still have to get my trailing arm spacers that i just ordered. My tires will probably rub so i'll just get them mounted and balanced and at least test fit and if there's rub i'll install them after i put the trailing arm spacers on.

This is without trailing arm spacers. I installed my lift and measured then ordered the one i thought would center it best. If i'd gone with ADF recommendation it would be the opposite of this pic and too far back and look awkward. I got 1".

Gotcha.. So on my GP/GJ gen, I would just need a multi-link spacer kit, and that would suffice?

Honestly i'm not entirely sure what a GP/GJ is lol. I just know my WRX is a GD GG. ADF calls the spacer i bought a trailing arm spacer. But a trailing arm being one of multiple links in the suspension, I'd guess it's the same thing, or at least similar duties. Sorry i can't answer definitively on that.

Edit: just went back and saw you have a newer Impreza and took a look on ADF's website. Yeah i'd guess that's what you need based on what they offer, is the Multi-Link spacer kit.

Have an 06 WRX wagon. About to pickup forester xt Struts and springs from off an 04 or have to go rip some off an salvage 07. Both same price and haven't decided which to go for. I am wanting to do the 3/8" saggy butt spacers. Do I need longer studs for those to fit?

Then I'm trying to find 97-99 outback trail arm brackets and rear sway bar brackets still. Might have find them new.

Then eventually will get smaller rims with bigger tires.

From what I've read on here I feel the 2 inch trailing arm spacers would set it back to far for just doing xt suspension with 3/8 rear spacer.

Drive a lot on the highways in the mountains and still want decent handling being my daily

Yes. ADF recommends getting the multi-link spacers with the 2" lift. Anything less than 2" and you can probably get away without the multi-link spacers.

Doing the same thing to mine

So has anyone on here gone beyond the normal struts and spacers lift with there impreza/wrx? I wanna get higher and i know I have to lower the driveline, extend shift and steering linkage, and other stuff but im not exactly sure on what needs to be lowered... I know I have seen some really high WRX's but haven't gotten ahold of them

my 2002 wrx, KYB GR2 struts, King springs, stock wheels/tire sizes. I want to step up to 265/65/16's but I think it will need trailing arm spacers.

265/65-16 will definitely not fit with your lift. That's a 29.5" tire diameter and nearly 10.5" wide. I have same exact lift and 215/65-16 i have rubbing in front and 1/8th in rear w/o trailing arm spacers so i haven't put my tires on yet. Once i do i'll still have only about half to 3/4 inch on either side of the tire in the rear and in the front where i'm gonna cut the splash guard. You'd likely need fender work for those 265/65's to clear, maybe even more lift.

Looks great! Any rubbing? What suspension are you running?
