    You might want to talk nice to EJ, he is a mod and will *** **** you if you talk back to him (just lettin you know). Back on subject, if you want to slam it then you clearly dont care about ride quality. Most people on here run the spring/strut combo so you wont really get much positive feedback and most of them dont like slammed cars either. So just get BC coilovers like all the rest. But i will let you know most cheaper coilovers are a hit or miss, a lot of people have issues with the cheaper quality stuff. If you have cash to blow just get KW's.

    1) As mentioned, personal attacks are against the forum rules you agreed to when you signed up.
    2) Your original question is extremely vague, giving no kind of pertinent information that someone could give you a valuable response based on. I gave you a pro/con in the first short sentence (you did ask for us to "keep it short"); a coilover is good for the track, but not typically good for the street.
    3) Every time you adjust ride height, you will need to redo your alignment for ~$100. That gets old fast, and typically people just leave it be. They're then left with less money, worse handling, and less comfort than if they just bought springs in the first place.

    RCE Yellows drop more than that, and are a great performance-minded spring

    Not sure, offhand. On my car, I believe it was an additional ~10mm F / ~5mm R drop with the Yellows compared to the Blacks (I run the Blacks)

    Well 1st off it was a simple question. If you aren't currently running coilovers on yer Subie I don't care to hear what yer opinion. I jus wanted to know what set up you are running and the pro's and con's of that said system. I forgot how sensitive people are now a days, everyone is offended by something. I do apologize for the so called "personal attack" by no means was it personal. EJ again I appologize and whether or not yer a mod makes no difference, I'd like to get back to the original question at hand. Thanks

    If you would like a quote feel free to PM us.

    I personally run the BC BR Series on my car. I love them. Just make sure you get an alignment after you install them and drop the car.
