For those with higher mileage WRX's, I have a few questions
1) When did you replace your struts and/or springs as far as necessity, not a performance upgrade?
2) Did you replace more than your struts and springs like the strut mounts and bushings?
3) When you did replace your suspension components, did you see a considerable difference in ride quality?
My '03 is 10 years old and has 115k miles and has the original struts. The Eibach springs were put on around 1k miles so those have the same use as well. My rear swaybar endlinks are really squeaking and getting worse. Since I'm going to replace those I was considering replacing the struts, springs, strut mounts and bushings while I'm at it. The ride and handling seem to be fine, although the rear end does seem to be getting much harsher on big bumps. When I do the shock push test on the bumpers, the front only bounces once. The rear bounces 2-3 times.
Any feedback would be great
