    No one can answer the question based on the information you provided.

    What is your budget?
    What will the car be used for - DD, DD / track, track?
    What's your goal with lowering - aesthetics, performance, both?
    What other mods do you have or have planned?

    Yeah sorry about that. I'm all over the place right now. The purpose for lowering the besides it looks badass is performance. I would like to try to spend under $500 right now. So I know I will probably have to go with just springs at the moment. I know Eibach makes good lowering springs, that's what I've always used. The car is mainly going to be used for daily driving. No tracks or anything yet. There's none on the Island to go to.

    I'm not sure your model, but Mach V springs are pretty popular for people looking for a drop for aesthetic reasons with a slight increase in performance.

    Other springs to consider in that category: Eibach Prokit, Prodrive Blues, SPT Pinks, Epic Engineering, and Swift Sports.

    After the spring install, you'll need an alignment. Try to find a shop that will set your alignment to your specs (OE spec is pretty crappy IMO).

    I'm in the process of buying a 05 wrx. Thanks for the heads up. There is an alignment guy close to me so that won't be a problem. I just need to find a decent all wheel Dyno.
