    What's your budget? And you mentioned off roading, are you wanting it lowered at all, or would you prefer close to stock ride height?

    I have V.7 STI adjustable struts with 2002 wagon springs and front sway delete. At high way speeds and on rough dirt it rides smother than stock and is much more planted and composed. At speeds below 45 the higher low speed damping makes the car rock front to back on uneven concrete roads. It is not much, but it is noticeable, not at all the same bouncy feeling as my completely blown stock struts. Once going 50-55 though the struts completely smooth out the concrete. I wish my car had come like this from the factory and am very happy with the setup for DD/rallycross/backroads fun

    Also check out the suspension threads on dirtyimpreza.com. A lot of different setups have been tried and put to the test on almost every model year Impreza and all about off-road/dirt.

    KYB AGX gas adjustable struts with Swift Spec-R wagon springs (1.2" drop in the front, .6" drop in the rear). If you want more refined dampening and are comfortable with DIY projects you could use Koni Yellow Damper Inserts instead of the AGX struts.. or if you increase your budget a little more you could get Tokico D-spec adjustable shocks, but they're $825 by themselves.
