    Stiffer than the ones Epic provides?

    Sorry, I have no idea what Epic provides, so I can't answer that. I'm using stops from RE.

    Sorry, just got around to seeing this. Thanks, fahr_side. They did come with new bumpstops for the rear. I just don't like how the car reacts to hard bumps and holes now. I love the new stance. Now I just need to firm things up a tad.

    Lokey-

    I think you'll enjoy the setup...I'd be curious to see what you end up with in terms of the settings for the Konis. I've kept mine on the softer side, right now I'm a half-turn from full soft. I've also tried quarter turn and a full turn, full turn was a little too harsh for me.

    It apears that Koni USA is out of stock on Koni's for 08 to 11 WRX at the moment, and are back ordered and expected to arrive sometime in the middle of the summer 2011.

    Then check for stock on the LGT set if you're in a hurry. You will need some extra spacers to fit the rears, and it would be smart to turn a couple of extra grooves in the body so you can adjust ride height, but otherwise they fit the same. Many of us were using this set before the WRX-specific fitment became available.

    Hi
    I was curious to know what would be the most economical way of obtaining the cable/USB/connector so I can run EcuFlash on a 2011 WRX?

    I buy them directly from the Tactix website, here. If you're looking to bundle other items together you might also check out Tuner Tools.

    I was just informed of the delay in getting these by the vendor. He said it would be mid-July before they get any in. I guess I'll be waiting, too....

    Ive never ran a motor hot(over tuned), I'm curious to know what the life expectancy of the mill drops to doing it? It has to have some negative effect on it, unless of course you never used the extra HP, but then whats the point.

    You sure you want to discuss this in the suspension forum?

    Red face Has the ride been what you expected?

    I have a 2011 WRX, and it's suspension is bottoming out, too much bouncing around as well. For instance my 2000 Protege will handle speed bumps and hardly ever bottoms out, with the Original Suspension...

    Front 8610 1453Sport will these give me the control i want the car to have
    Rear 8010 1055Sport will these give me the control i want the car to have

    Totally happy

    Hey how is it going!
    I'm totally happy with the Koni's and H&R upgrade. I'm sure that the Koni's on there own would have done the trick but since I was already in there I figured a 1 inch and a bit of a drop and a higher quality spring, what the hell go for it.
    The car feels like a beast now, and I have the Koni's only at about 50% so there is still lots more there if I wanted to stiffen it more. At 25 % it was to much like stock but without the floatiness. It will be the best bang for the buck in upgrades that you could do for the money.
