I am looking at putting a lift kit on my 01 forester.
Debating between a bottom strut lift and a top strut lift.
Or a combo of both.

Can someone help me with the pros and cons of both and if it is possible to run them together and what it takes to Make this happen.

This is what I am thinking

2.5 inch bottom
1.5 inch top
3 inch trailing arms.

I'm thinking along the same lines

I'm thinking along the same lines. Considering the bottom lift first, in combination with spacers, to allow for taller tires. There is a guy in North Carolina that seems like he has a strut bottom lift kit. (Automative Maintenance & Performance around Asheville?)
EDIT: Just found out that ADF also makes a bottom lift kit...

I don't remember the name off the top of my head, but there is a thread on this forum. Do a search for "extended coilovers".
