Sorry @NachaLuva I have been thinking a little more about this
Does the 2" lift you are talking about reduce the suspension travel at all?
Also does anyone getting the lift look at increasing the suspension travel through new shocks etc. or is everyone happy with stock?
Thanks

Not everyone is happy with stock, well certainly in the older models, not sure what can be done in the newer ones.

Strut lift does nothing to shock travel in general as they tell.

SubieS a lift kit lifts the entire car higher increasing ground clearance & approach/departure angles. It doesn't have any effect on suspension travel. The only way to increase travel is with long travel coilovers like Hotbits, very good but very expensive at around $3k. The most cost effective build for good results is a 2" lift kit & stock suspension, it is the most pliant & gives the best ride & articulation offroad
