    05 STi Suspension

    I currently have a 2005 STi with Tanabe GF 210 springs but the ride is a little rough for a daily driver. So my question is what suspension would give me a softer ride with similar performce.

    upper strut hat may not be properly installed or a bushing may be bad in the strut hat.

    Also could be your exhaust knocking on the body of the car if a hanger is bad or off. or aftermarked and not properly installed.
