What’s up guys, I recently bought a 99SF
I want to lift it. However I’ve seen a lot of do’s and do not’s concerning lifts and I just want to raise her up as much as I can without hurting her. Can I be pointed in the direction to go. Also I’m going to try to put 225 70 R15’s on it, I guess that’s as big as you can go. But that’s where I want to start. Any thoughts or similar builds ?

Seems like nothing is "up" if you have to lift it ;) Welcome aboard!

The spring perch is the limiting factor for tire size. If you install SG struts you'll get a bit more clearance.
Browse the members' builds, "Wheels and Tires" and this section and you'll get some ideas.

right ! Lol I just want a little more clearance is all. I was looking at that and I knew I could not go very much bigger on the tire size. So did you lift your outback ?
