    So... I bought my wagon for several reasons. First, we have weather half the year. Second, I needed a driver as I have two toys (07 Buell xb12scg and '60 VW bug ragtop). Third, needed the wagon cargo space for carrying around product for my side business for pick ups and deliveries.

    The result, a 07 WRX wagon, WRB, with graphics. Graphics are not done, but almost there:

    Looking to buy some springs, been looking at epic, and sti pinks, and a few others. I want a decent angled drop where the tires are almost flush with the wheel wells. Any pictures of ur wagons with what kind of springs so i could get an idea would be awesome! or any advice, just got paid itching to buy some.

    Ditto. Best set up that I can afford that I've come up with so far are KYB GR2s with Epic, H-Tech, or Eibach Pro Kit springs.

    I'm under the impression Tokico D-Specs won't work as they're for sedans. Is this true? Will they work with camber bolts? Wish I had the $$$ for Konis, but they alone are over my budget.

    Also, anyone know if the KYB GR2 wagon struts, or D-Specs will bolt onto the '04+ without '02-03 top hats?

    Such a newb, I know. Appologies.

    KYB GR2s seem to be one of the few -if not only wagon-specific after market struts?

    I'm sure you've seen the epic wagon springs threadn nasioc, that's what I'm going off of for their ride height. That, and the specs on the RCE wagon springs and pics on the nasioc thread for that group buy. The Pro Kit, Epics, and H-Techs seem to share about the same level of drop.

    But you're right, more pics would be much appreciated.

    Next thing I am going to be doing is some new wheels and tires. I've been looking at some rotas, I want something nice and wide. I really want to go for an aggressive look. Maybe 18x9 e42 Rota DPT's? Will these even fit on the wagon? I am guessing I will need to roll my fenders? And what tire size should I run on the wheels? I am performance minded, would it be better to go with smaller wheels/tires? Wheels/tires on a wagon seems like such a shade tree subject, not many people have to much info on what fits and what does not.

    18x9's will not even be CLOSE to fitting the wagon.

    Rolling fenders wont help.. you'll need to pull the fenders, and even then it'll probably be borderline.

    Look into a 17x8 or a 18x7.5 wheel... they'll be more likely to fit your wagon.

    What size tire could I wrap the 17x8's with? I am guessing 235/40/17? or could I go 245?
