    Spring set up

    Looking for best option for either coil over setup or a cheaper route to eliminate the wheel dip you get with the stock wrx suspension... Want to lower it a little bit for a better look and stiffer setup for cornering. Not trying to be mr. Stance nation, I drive mountain roads and need functionality over looks. Any suggestions? And I will be running the stock wrx wheels and tires for now.

    not going to be a track car, but i do want legit performance for the twisty mtn roads if ya know what i mean.

    My recommendation? Stick with the stock springs until you are ready to upgrade your struts.

    Ok prob should have worded this better... Looking for a full coil over set up. Not just springs.

    So what are you looking to spend?

    Plan at least $1800 for coilovers.

    Also, will the vehicle be used primarily as a track car? If not, I would stick to a quality spring/damper combination, as that particular setup will be significantly more forgiving for the streets.

    ^^ Agreed with Robin. Excellent choices as far as Coilovers go.

    You can also look into the GTWorx Bilsteins with RCE springs.
