    If i were you, i'd wait save up a little more and get a coilover you can adjust. Then you wont hit yourself in the head after you lower it and still have a inch gap

    2008 SPT springs

    I'm still researching springs for my 09. Do you want to go harder or softer than the stock 09 springs?

    The 2008 Pink STi Coil Springs for the WRX are only about 25% stiffer than the stock 08 springs. Drop is only 10mm.

    The stock 2009 spings are about 43% stiffer than the stock 08.

    springs rates for 08, f/r 151/140 #/"; for 09, 216/193
    the 08/09 Suspension/Brake reference

    There are a lot of spring vendors out there for the 08-09, problem is not many list what their spring rates are. Most will list what the drop is.

    Here's a tread with some good pics of a 08 that has H&R springs and bigger tires.

    H&R drop f1.4, r1.3, #54462, I some e-mails out about what the spring rates are. hers another pic:

    ??

    So you want to put softer springs on your 09 than what you already have?? I think they would fit because all the spring vendors list the same ones for 08 or 09.
