    None...You will achieve maximum low if you take out the springs/shocks and just let the car sit on itself. The ride may be a little bumpy, but who cares.

    What are your goals?

    Bags are generally considered a "what the ffffff???" type of mod because you will ultimately take away from what these cars are made to do: handle and perform with AWD precision. These aren't your Hondas and VWs that are stanced and hellaflush and all that retarded bull****, though it is quickly becoming that sadly...

    ...but that being said, sorry for my rant. What are your goals for the car?

    Understandable...then Bags certainly aren't what you're looking for. They are incredibly expensive as well.

    Coilovers are tough because if you get cheap ones (read: anything generally under $1200 or so) you aren't getting as quality of a performing part that you should have. With that being said now...I have a set of Feal coilovers on my STI that I absolutely love. Gave it a nice lower stance, but not ridiculous, and they ride very well for coils, are great quality, and perform very well in handling department. They cost me $1400 shipped, and I installed them myself.

    If you aren't looking for that kind of a price range, there are a lot of spring/strut replacement options that are available as well that would end up costing about $800-900 total for good quality parts and would inprove handling over stock very well. You generally get about an inch to an inch and a half drop with this route.

    No prob! They are a great value for something more entry level. A lot of GR Subaru (3rd generation) owners are picking them up now because of that, and posting rave reviews...even miles ahead of BC Racing coils which are the industry "cheap standard" that so many people drop money on unfortunately.
