    How do the cobb springs act as an everyday driver spring? is it too harsh? I am driving cross country in a few weeks and dont want to b uncomfortable the whole time. Are the podrive's less harsh?

    They are not harsh at all.

    Do you notice any bounciness like the car is under-damped or do the stock dampers work well with the Cobb springs?

    I have been debating doing the same with my '06 but I need to mount my new 18x7.5 wheels first to see if they will hamper the drop. I am hoping they wont interfere at all, but we shall see.

    As long as you have the correct offset you shouldn't have a problem fitting them with drop springs. The 06 sti comes with 18x8s stock.

    depends on how much drop you want, i think. i have ridden on both sets of springs...i would say that the cobbs are +5/10% "harsher" than the prodrives ~ and of course drop your car a little more.

    Funny you say that cause, I mounted the new shoes last night and the clearance looks to be about the exact same. The offset was TireRack recommended and clearly works out. No rubbing anywhere, not even close. I just may crank her down a bit now.

    I know the prodrives are made by eibach and they are really good springs, but why on earth would they be designed to look higher in the rear??? The prokits look much better and is low enough for good looks while providing ample ground clearance for the snow and wierd inclines. Of course they are a progressive rate spring which gives up a little in the handling department for a more cushy ride.

    anyways, the '06 frontend has definetly grown on me.

    They were not designed to look higher in the rear....that is just how the fender is cut in the back...Are you saying the eibach prokits are more of a cushy ride than the prodrives? If so you mean more comfortable correct?
