do you have some good flex pics from side with your new shocks ? or maybe even comparison before and after new shocks ?
found some

so that front wheel doesnt drop down so much more then stock does it . i mean just front wheel alone . i got it that all 4 shocks makes such great flex there. but anyone made some comparrison stock vs coils on numbers , like how much more they allow ?

In the HotBits thread, first page, you can see some pics.

And if you look at the last video I posted (Morvan/France) going slow motion or pause, you can also see the suspension travel vs oem SF(beige) or SG/BG(green before the mud pit !)

All three Foresters had no swaybars.

I don't go much lower than a 2" strut block lifted Subaru but I don't loose the thickness of the 2" blocks on compression. Its all about wheel travel/stroke, not ground clearance.

If I remember correctly, oem flex (diagonal spin) with swaybars was 27cm, without swaybars 42cm and HotBits 60cm (tire pressure 2,2bars/32psi)

now thats good flex there. sure its not all about ground clearance but you need to have some clearance first still.
that 42cm flex is forester your model flex yes ? wonder how well outbacks as mine do . i guess some worse as not same suspension design

Not sure that you don't get the same flex as the Forester. You have a longer wheelbase on the Outback. The only way to know is to test it !
