    Its a Whiteline 22-24-26mm adjustable one. Set on 24mm. 22mm on the front.

    They are Ohlin struts that came of a Japanese circuit car, If I set the rebound to stiff they dont drop at all.

    I was having some boost trouble that day so we are trying to communicate with the car telepathically Somehow I had managed to inadvertently turn on the boost cut on my ECU Would have been a good day otherwise... Ran only .6 of a second of my PB, and was only running 10psi as opposed to 18psi...

    The guy leaning on the front of the car drives this:

    * 1:18.47 Manfield * 11.81 @ 114.7mph *

    I was looking at the Ohlins Flag series (they are spec'd in Japan) and was very suprised to find they only had 4"ish of total travel (f&r)- for Japanese roads (supposedly the finest/smoothest in the world?) evidently a lot of travel isn't needed

    Japan dose have very smooth roads. I think they only work on roads at late night, during the day time, the metal plates that cover the construction is laid so smooth that you won't even know it's there.

    I've always been a fan of WRB and gold ala WRC

    Bronze looks pretty good on WRB as does gunmetal

    that top mount is nice, how much larger than stock is it and how much did it set you back.

    that intercooler is amazing, definitly adds a touch of performance over the stock junk intercooler. how much did you pay for it and did it come with new red connectors or is it just an intercooler.

    Bigsky,

    What do you think about those springs for wagon?

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Tein-...6650QQtcZphoto

    Is it real TEIN?

    I don't know if they are real Tein or not- not sure how you would tell exactly- might go to the Tein site I think they have info on Tein counterfiets

    if those springs deliver what they advertise- 229/196 rates w/ a 26mm lowering front/23mm lowerign rear- they would be very, very good IMO

    those are nice rates and nice drops, IF that's what they are

    Thanks Big Sky.

    What does it mean IMO?

    Will the tein springs (if they are so...) go with koni inserts?

    IMO= in my opnion

    yes those rates/drops if as advertised would be a very good match w/ the Koni's

    the rates are almost identical w/ the WRX wagon pinks, w/ ~ 10mm more drop- probably what a lot of folks are looking for

    Thank you!

    I improve my american every day

    And what about daily driving with Tein (or Sti wagon pink) and koni?
    Will it be tough and will I touch? ( I hope you understand what I ask...My vocabulary is a bit limited )
