    Never heard of that brand. I would rather spend my money on something proven. Also, IMHO if your car is a daily driver and does not see the track often, coilovers are waste. A good strut and spring combo is the way to go.

    If you are willing to spend $1500 on some random coilovers. Why not get a proven setup. I would get something like this:

    Tokico Dspecs (w/spacers and rear adjustment extenders)
    RCE Blacks\Yellows (for a bit more comfort Swift Sports - Sti Version)
    Group N Top hats front/rear
    Camber Bolts
    WhiteLine Roll Center Adjustment Kit

    Find a good alignment shop and get one of those lifetime alignment packages. Get a really good alignment to your own specs..something like -1.5 front, -.5 rear, and 0 toe all round.

    unless...

    Unless you want the look that a coilover offers that this mentioned setup does not... in my case... I dont like the look of springs on a wrx. But if your in the same situation as I and like the lower look... I'm sure everyone will agree to spend a good chunk of change on GOOD coilovers (TiC, Cusco, Endura-Techs, Ohlins, and stay away from Tein. They blow... literally...

    This is a 2009 thread. Pretty sure it's dead.

    To answer your question, if you don't have $2k to spend on coilovers, you don't really need coilovers. Megan Racing makes horrible quality coilovers. For lower budgets, first focus on a good set of tires, then look at adjustable swaybars, then a good strut/spring combo.

    Stay away from Megan coils. They suck balls.

    Start your own thread, you'll get more hits, and more answers to your questions.

    You want to know what the fender gap is, get a tape measure
