    Isc coilover spring rate selection. Gr wrx sedan

    Hi all,
    Im about to purchase a set of isc coilovers for my 2013 wrx sedan. Main reason for going with them is because they seem to have food reviews and i got a competitive price on a set. They also come with thrust bearings for reduced noise and pillowball mounts in the front which allow for camber adjustment, and are adjustable via camber bolts in the rear from my understanding. They also have a 2 yr warranty and decent rebuild policy past that. I do plan on running 18x10 +38mm in the future so the adjustable camber may help me there..

    Anyhow, the available spring rates are 8/6 8/8 10/8 and 12/10. I want an aggressive dd set up which will see track use a couple times a year. I do run sway bars and a tranny mount with various upgraded bushings and endlinks. Also have pitch stop and transmission bushings.

    What spring rate would you guys go with? Im open to hearing any suggestions and comments you guys may have. Comfort is nice but not a huge priority. Thanks!

    Bump for you. Interested to see what the consensus is with ISC coilovers.

    Rear camber adjustment isn't on the cheap like it was with the GDs and $35 camber bolts.

    Yeah.. Actually my initial plan was gtworx/rce blacks or yellows, since i know i cant go wrong with that setup. I did find it a bit difficult to get in contact with gt worx about their struts though, i left multiple emails about ordering amd heard nothing..

    i was going to go with those but the shop i order from would take a while to get them in stock so i went with BC's which were a little cheaper. for my 02 im going the BC's are 8k front and 6k rear. i think thatll be quite fine for a DD but maybe the 10/8 if u do some autox

    Anything but garbage ISC coilovers. Some sticks from the woods might be better.

    ive read great reviews about them and theyre competitive with BC's.

    which some members installed and like on their auto x car or DD but some members with da phat wallets ^^ like Feals, KW var. 1's, <$1500, etc. at a minimum for coils.

    Quick update, I am getting cusco rear lateral links to help with camber in the rear, especially since I plan on getting 18x10 wheels.

    I have a pretty sweet deal lined up for kw v1's for around 1 grand picked up. I will be installing isc n1's in the meantime though, and probably just sell them when I do pick up the v1's later in may or june...
