As the title of the thread implies, I'm looking to lower my 2012 WRX Sedan on the OEM shocks. I'm only looking for about an inch to an inch and a half drop and I'm not only doing it for looks as I would like to improve handling before I go stage 2. I'll probably throw a set of sway bars into the mix down the road but I'd like to do the spring first.
Anyway, I've done some research and it looks like I have a handful of options available... From what I have gathered, I could install a set of RCE Black springs or the STI Pink springs without any negative effect to the OEM shocks, but I would be concerned these springs would not lower the car enough for my taste. I've seen anywhere from .75" to an 1" of lowering claimed using these springs. With that said, I've been looking at the H&R Sports as well as the Eibach Pro Kit as a possible alternative (both claim to lower the car 1.3-1.4 inches) but my concern would be how quickly the stock shocks would wear out using these springs?
If anyone has any advice, experience or picutres of their 2011+ WRX on any of the above springs I would greatly appreciate the input.
Thanks in advance.
