Stock struts don't handle a drop very well. You'll need to consider replacements if you want to lower the car.
This is a discussion on Eibach pro kit within the Suspension & Wheels forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; 2010 wrx is my dd....just looking for cost efficient drop...new to the wrx scene, coming from a 2002 reg cab ...
2010 wrx is my dd....just looking for cost efficient drop...new to the wrx scene, coming from a 2002 reg cab truck in which belltech was used for my drop...
any advice would help..thanks
i installed the eiback prokit @ approximately 10,000 miles on my 2006 wrx. i'm now approaching 66,000 and have yet to have any issues whatsoever with the springs or OEM struts
You need to consider matching your spring rates with strut damping. I believe Eibach Pro-kit is considered "OEM Fitment" so it will "work" with stock struts, but IMO it's not ideal. A lowering spring will have a stiffer spring rate to keep you from riding the bump stop, and as such you'll be closing in on an under-damped suspension. Consider a decent set of springs matched with a good set of struts... don't lower just for looks.
