    yup DD what are your questions about the suspension? I'm no expert but i can give you my opinions.

    Stock s2k has great handling almost zero body roll and a near perfect 50/50 weight distribution.

    Stock GR WRX to me felt like a small minivan with body roll it was pretty awful.

    Yeah I could care less for that body roll... lol. I'm not expert either so I was wondering with a stiffer suspension, does that also make for a more jarring daily drive?

    It's noticeably stiffer and yes you feel bumps on the road than you didn't feel before but its not like unbearable by any means its just what you sacrifice for a stiffer setup. I while back I found a good write up on sways for the noob. It is a pretty good explanation of how they work altho i don't agree with their recommendation of products.

    I personally have my sways set at the softest setting front and rear and my koni's are at 50%

    Its the Cobb plate delete found here:
    Subaru Front License Plate Delete

    Cobb actually puts their sticker on these then pants the metal black then peels the sticker off and voila you get a masked cobb logo. Im not a big sticker/logo fan so i just sanded it down stripped it down to the metal, I'm lucky enough to have access to a professional body shop. The color code is 02C if youre looking to get it done or attempt to do it yourself.

    One winter tire had a bad bubble that escalated quickly so put the summers on a little early.
