    They shouldn't hang over too bad...I've seen numerous people run 245s on a stock 8" width STI wheel without any problem.

    All 4 of them are at least at 60%... two of them are close to 80%. I'd say they are good for 2-3 track days

    All the more reason to go finish wearing out my Hoosiers

    BFG R1s are "technically" a DOT approved radial... although they are 100% slick. Not that I should, but I could drive them on public highways to get to the track.

    Sways - Cobb 25mm front and rear w/ adjustable rear mounts, Kartboy front endlinks, Whiteline rear endlinks.

    When it comes to sways, I say the bigger the better. Cobb no longer makes theirs, but I believe Hotchkiss still does, and that'a all the cobb swaybars were, is re-branded hotchkiss.

    Whiteline makes a 26 or 27mm sway if I recall.

    I added all my current mods to a list on the 1st page and I'm tryin to keep it updated.

    i have been told that a 24mm or so and a 20mm or 22mm is pretty good for street use. if you get a much bigger bar in the back could make oversteer be more prominent. if you would make an evasive maneuver you could have snap steer (where you dive into a turn and lay off the throttle.. the ass comes out on ya or with quick steering input, the rear comes out). i was told that a 20mm or 22mm is all the bigger you need in the rear for basically a dd. whats your take one this.

    If you are diving into a turn and then braking..... You have no business on a racetrack anyway

    Honestly.... Even with my rear sway set at full-hard, my coilovers set at full-hard, the subframe lockdown bolts, and the chassis bracing..... And my front coilover tophats set at over negative 4 degrees of camber...... I STILL STRUGGLE with understeer.... Not oversteer.

    With that.... Im going to have to disagree.... I still say the bigger the better. I suppose it could just be my driving style though... Everybody is different

    for your dd setup. what do you set your sway bars on?
    do you like your eibach springs? i dont think i am going the route of coilovers thats why i am asking.
    do you have a pic with the springs on it not the coilovers i could see what it looks like?
    thanks tom

    I keep my rear sway on full-hard all the time.... Just because it's a PITA to adjust. My car is pretty brutal after the coilover install, so it isn't going to make a whole lot of difference in comfort level. When I was still on the eibachs.... I used the medium setting.

    Yes, 1st page of this thread has pics with the eibachs on it. I like them, they are very comfortable and provide a decent drop. In way of handling improvement, they don't provide a whole lot.

    I can tell you that Prodrive springs are the EXACT same drop... I've seem my buddy's 07 WRX parked next to mine... and they are identical... the prodrives provide better handling.

    I can also tell you that Epic Engineering has received EXCELLENT reviews from almost everyone that uses them, and the drop is a little bit lower than the eibachs. If I had it to do all over again, based on what I've read, I would have chosen the new Epic springs.

    Check out Rallysportdirect.com... they keep them in stock... and the guys there rock, are extremely helpful, and wont steer you in the wrong direction.

    i will check out the pic. i have seen the epic springs. yes people do sound happy with them. i want the better handling and even look. i think they are what i will get. when i get the money around. thats about as low as i want to go mostly cause of driving in snow and i have 18 inch wheels. i dont want troubles with either of them. havent figured out what to do about the sways yet. i got lots of time to figure that out. thanks for the help

    Seriously though...isn't the stock sway 18mm to begin with? You definitely want to go at least with a 22mm. Otherwise you're spending money for barely upgrading. I had a 24mm Perrin on my first STI and it really helped with the understeer. I had it on the medium setting and it caused no instability in the ass-end at all. I definitely suggest 24mm or bigger

    ^^^^ Kartboy endlinks.

    They are bigger, beefier, and the bushings actually wrap around the outside of the metal part and provide more stability....... and they cost less.

    Check out page 18 of this thread to see what happened to a whiteline endlink.
