    How hard is it to return to stock?

    Looking at a 07 sti that has been lowered... but I want it stock, how hard/costly would it be to raise the car back up to OE levels?

    Jack stands on all four corners. Open Hood. Remove back seat. Take out coilovers. Put in stock coilovers. Reverse order. Alignment.

    About 3 hours by yourself...Not bad really. A lot easier with a helper though.

    The STi came with upgraded suspension compared to the WRX. So, the STi suspension tends to be a bit more expensive as it's somewhat desirable. I paid less than 200 for my stock WRX suspension lol.

    Can you get oem from parts stores? Or do I need to hunt junk yards?

    Do you want to get rid of the coilovers? Why don't you just raise them up to almost stock height?
