    Coil overs vs Drop springs

    Been searching for this thread for about 45min. Can't find one suitable so here goes:

    I Know coil overs are more expensive and drop springs do their exact function but $1000+ is a lot for a drop. What do y'all think is the correct move? It's for a Wrx '11

    What are you using the car for, and what is your budget? I'd say if you're looking to spend less than about $2300 then forget about coilovers, even for a race car.

    Yea, I'm just looking for a more aggressive stance/better corner taker. Not really for hitting up the track but something that will endure daily driving. Budget around $500?

    You're not going to get anything worthwhile for $500. If you lower your car with springs ($200-$300) you will need to replace your struts to handle the different springs ($600-$800).


    You need to double your budget.
