    lol... the Koni inserts, basically you take your stock struts and replace the guts. It's an inexpensive option with fairly decent results. I'm sure someone on here can post a "how to" for you. I think the Bilstein's might be a little better, but I'm no expert on third gen Imprezas.. so I'll let someone else chime in here.

    the koni inserts are a bi of a pain to do the fronts because you have to drill th stock struts, but it's not hard to do.

    at the time i did mine, the blisteins were just coming out, and i didn't want to wait so i went with the konis. if i was going to do it again, i would probably spend a little more money up front and get the blisteins.

    I have a '13 WRX and have a similar question. I like the stock ride as this is my DD but want to reduce the felt body roll. Will just upgrading the sway bars and end links?

    That will help decrease body roll without making the ride too much harsher.

    I have to agree here, I'm new to the subie world but when I got my Racecomp springs and bilstein shocks, alot of subie owners told me it was a good choice. I actually got lucky, on a local forum a guy was selling them and i swooped them up for 750. They had about 5k on them, but I am very happy with them. Dropped about an inch all around and I can take much faster turns. This was my first suspension mod.
