    Rally Setup?

    So I'm just a subie fan but I'm curious. What kind of suspension, wheel and tire set up would you want for a practical DD but also good for tearing up dirt roads on the weekend? I imagine the last thing you want to do is lower it.

    King springs (probably the lift variety, ~1" or so of lift), generally a good idea to get the struts revalved for a friendlier damping profile for dirt/gravel. Probably going to want to run some 15" wheels with either winter or all-terrain rubber, which if, as your pic suggests, you have an STi is going to require a brake "down-grade". Most people do a 4/2 pot setup, either the JDM gravel setup or the 06/07 WRX brake calipers. Broken Motorsports has the rotors you'd need for the setup.

    Stock suspension. 2/4 Pots. Seperate tires for the street and for the dirt.

    or

    My friend DD's his bugeye WRX with Forester struts/springs and otherwise stock suspension. I think he took off the sway bars as well, not sure though.
