    If you only have $700 to spend, you don't have enough for a set of decent coilovers.

    What makes you think that they're any better than equivalent set of springs and struts?

    I'm assuming you're joking.


    If not get the cheapest **** you can buy because you're only hurting your performance anyway and seriously compromising your handling.

    sigh not this again. haters may hate.
    i'm going stance because it looks good and i can still drive places.
    this is my daily driver. not a race car.
    my car is on a factory tune and a catback exhaust. i'm not looking to go fast
    id rather put money into suspension parts breaking than putting money into power mods and having my engine go bad, etc.

    please keep your .02 cents out. everyone has their own preferences as to how they wanna mod their cars. you have yours, i have mine

    I don't have a problem with this logic. It's your car and as long as you realize what you're doing then go nuts.

    I have a serious question though which is that I don't understand why people buy an STI if not for the performance? Can you please explain why you bought one? This is a serious question not trying to flame you. As I said it's your car.

    FWIW, you should just buy a set of springs then instead of spending money on coilovers. The hellaflush look is based on your rim offsets not coilovers, which only set your ride height. You can achieve the same drop with a set of springs for a few hundred bucks and save yourself $400.

    Or you can cut your springs and sell each half for $35. You'd get $140 for the set AND get to ride your bump stop the whole day!


    Kidding. GLWB!

    Already have a set of lowered springs. I have too much wheel gap to get the ride height where I want it to be.
    I don't have a WRX/STi. Used to. Don't anymore.

    I realize stance is based on offset.
    My offset is going to be +30 in the front and +27 in the rear.

    Gang,

    This is the WANT TO BUY forum.

    This is not the please pass judgment on my preferences and tell me to leave because you don't like it forum.

    If this thread were in another section then that's one thing but it is not. If you have constructive advice and helpful info for the OP, fine. Otherwise use the PM or post in another section.
