I put Forester struts and springs under my Impreza.
What do I need to center the wheels back in the wheel wells?
Do I need Legacy trailing arms, trailing arm brackets, sway bar brackets, and camber bolts?
Or would adjustable rear trailing arms with adjustable rear links work?
Thank you all.

No need for adjustable links. Just put a spacer in the bracket. You might also be able to use Forester trailing arm brackets but the easiest thing to do I think is a spacer.

Adjustable trailing arms. How are the angles on the lateral links?
Am unsure about the angle of the lateral links, however when the wheels are off the ground they have a lot of positive camber. The wheels go down in inward just like an old VW Beetle.

Have you taken any geometry courses in the past?

Look at the raising components from eg subyliftoz or your local mfg, you’ll need rear trailing arm mount spacers and some others, they should be able to advise :)
