    they'd make your car handle better than an sti, ride wise depends on the stiffness of the set you get. if you want your car to handle and ride like an sti, then you should buy the sti supsension from subaru

    This isn't true. You cannot buy a WRX and expect it handle better than STi. there are so many differences; I think relatively speaking for a daily driver you can get it to where the difference is negligible as to whether you can tell. I drove an 09 STi a few weeks ago. The difference and feel was staggering

    Wow.... No... not a damn chance are you going to make a wrx handle like an STi with ONLY changing struts/springs.. There are SO many characters at play here ESPECIALLY the full locked differentials.
