    New guy in Socal

    Whats up guys. My name is Jordan, I've been in San Diego for about a year, I'm originally from TN. I have a 2004 WRX wagon, almost all stock with a custom cat back, Romraider tune and an STI shift knob. Within the next month it'll have 2" drop springs (free) sway bars, endlinks, 18x8 rims, sticky tires, and eventually KWv3 coilovers, bigger turbo, bigger injectors, and stage 3 clutch. Heres some pics, hope to meet you guys soon.

    welcome Jordan!

    You're going to have a hard time fitting those 18x8s with a significant drop without tucking those fenders, just FYI... you might want to consider the 17x7.5s instead.


    Edit:
    What springs are you looking at? Most functional springs will drop you 1.3-1.5 inches.

    See the problem is, I don't know what the springs are. All I know is that the guy I'm getting them from says his car is about 2" lower than a stocker, and he doesn't like it that way (he bought it like that). So hes giving me the springs and struts. And I plan on rolling, and pulling the fenders some to make them fit

    Any particular reason you're set on the 18x8? I good set of tires on 17x7.5 will give you comparable performance without having to "damage" your car....

    Because I like the big, wide steamroller look. I don't really consider rolling fenders damage. I'm not gonna scream about how its "Hellaflush" but I did spend two years in Japan, and loved every minute of it, and picked up a lot of styling q's over there. And I like them dropped over some fat rims and tires, with the fender lips rolled just right.
