    Thanks, nowhere near where she needs to be though. I'll probably just start with the spring lift one of these days, plus I need to make my old skid plate fit, then it'll be a good start.

    Actually doesn't seem much louder than with it in. Then again, there really didn't seem to be much in the first place: just this weird foam padding over the tunnel/tranny area and in the fronts of the driver and passenger footwells. That's it, just a couple plastic vent things that fed to under the front seats (air for the back seat if assume) and carpet. Contemplating pulling my roof liner but I think that would increase the noise level a little more than I'd like. We shall see though.

    -better braking
    -more rugged interior
    -doesn't have to worry about beating up a new car when offroading

    -overall just fits his needs better?

    Yep, that's more or less the plan. Kng springs will net about 1.5" of lift all around and then maybe add in .5" spacers to clear a little more. So about the same lift as the WRX had. I'll be excited too!!

    Don't like it, go elsewhere. Cheers. All of the following pretty well answer it.

    And I care, why? It's getting rally setup. Dirt and plant life aren't friendly to paint.
