    Agency Power Lowering Springs

    Just wondering if anyone has any expirience with these springs. I like the amount of drop they offer 1.25" F .75" R.
    Im currently in the market to start my suspension and Im split between these agency power springs, the Eibach Pro Kit and the Tanabe GF210.

    Agreed with EJ257.

    Springs aren't all about the drop and how they look. Have you considered the performance aspect of them?

    If you want a drop with good performance, I'd recommend some RCE Yellows.

    Well that explains alot, as far as performance i understand the spring rates but i dont want to sacrifice ride quality. I was looking at the rce's but after taking a ride in another wrx with them i found them a little too stiff.

    RCE also makes Black "Regular Guy" springs that are designed to preserve ride comfort..

    so why not spend the extra $50 on a quality set of springs? If money is tight, save your money until you can afford the quality springs.

    Nailed it.

    I'd stay away from anything Agency Power per EJ's post.

    I have their blacks/regular guy springs... They are close to the same spring rate (and hence ride comfort) as yellows but do not drop the car much. I figured the OP wanted a significant drop.

    RCE, hands down.

    If you're going to pick up the Konis, be sure to pair them with a spring that can really take advantage of them.

    The H&R springs I found had good reviews and also provide the drop I want. The Spring rates are close to the RCE blacks, but before I jump the gun and order them Im going for a ride with someone who has both.

    If they drop your car a different amount, you'll need a different spring rate. If you want a larger drop than the blacks (along the lines of the yellows) look for a spring rate equivalent to the yellows, not black. I don't think it is a large difference, however.

    Also, it's worth noting that spring X with rate Z is not the same as spring Y also with rate Z. Main difference being linearity and fitment. Either way, I'm not familiar with H&R so I can't really offer too much on the subject.
