    Focus on braking and cornering mods. The WRX has plenty of straight line grunt, but really lacks in the corners.

    If anything a bit of suspension work before braking. My own opinion but I feel the brakes are decent stock for a bit but the body roll is a bit much

    Are my eyes playing a trick on me, or has it been slightly lowered?

    Well after stage 1 is usually stage 2. But as others have mentioned, handling is a good idea to.

    I'd go handling. RCE regular guy Springs are a popular option that I'm considering myself, but still looking for another option that won't lower as much.

    You are in the right mindset. A good set of springs and struts will only drop you 1.5 inches from the ride height. It's really not that bad of a drop and it will usually put you barely lower than an STI.
