    Linear is basically the same stiffness all the way, progressive get.. progressively stiffer the further they compress. What that translates to is that linear rate springs provide superior handling characteristics. Progressive springs are usually pretty dang soft until you hit a substantial bump, so progressive should result in better ride comfort, but less feedback from the road.

    FYI you realize thats only going to drop the car 15mm which is .6 inches. I think you should get RCE blacks, and if you blow out the struts down the road upgrade the struts with Koni Yellows.

    That said, these are a LOT firmer than the stock springs (335/402 vs 216/194), and even significantly firmer than previous versions of this spring (285/275). For reference, RCE Yellows are 330/330, and the RCE Blacks are 275/250.

    (NOTE: The only stock spring rates I could find in a quick search was for 2011 WRX, but 2013 should be similar)
