    I have alot of customers order the BC Coilovers. They are a decent coilover for the price. Are you looking to go for performance or just for Stance?

    Not so much. There are a lot of really crappy coilovers out there that I wouldn't trust.


    Personally, I would go with TiC SSTs.

    If you're going for stance, go the strut + spring route. You'll save money, and have a better ride over any budget priced coilover.

    Okay then, what is your budget? Because unless you have ~$2500 to spend on coilovers, you're wasting your time in even looking at them.

    Take this from a guy who currently owns and rides on a set of BC's. They are NOT street friendly. If you want to be able to enjoy your normal day to day driving, you'll want either a moderately expensive coilover setup (TiC SST's as mentioned above, or KW V3's), you'll want to go with the strut and spring setup.

    Being that you're of the GR body style, I'd go with a set of these:

    GTWORX.COM : GTWORX/Bilstein Impreza WRX Cup Sport Kit

    With the RCE yellow spring option, but that's because I'd prefer the better spring rates. For "stance", you'll probably want the black option as you'll get a bit more drop out of it and a percieved better stance, though performance won't be as good as the yellows. With the blacks you'll get about a full 1" drop front and about 7/8" rear drop but there are settings on the rears that allow you to go a bit lower if you'd like.

    Note that struts/springs are not height adjustable, but you'll be much better off with this option for daily driving on the roads than ANY budget coilover setup. Trust me on that one.

    What are you going for here? Complete tuck and roll? An inch is a lot more than you might think it is. But if you're dead set on going the coilover route, I'd look into maybe the Feal 441 coilovers. Still a budget piece, but the valving is probably going to be a lot better on those than you would find on BC's, Megan's or Fortune Autos.

    Understood, just know that you WILL be sacrificing handling performance and streetability for that.
