    Epic Engineering Rear Sway and Springs

    Hey folks,

    any owners on this forum know anything or have working knowledge of Epic Engineering?

    Just wondering if the really good pricing is indicative of craftsmanship or is it really a steal?

    They have a good combo package that includes a Rear Sway bar (20mm) and a spring kit that drops the car 1"(rear) and .6"(front). I know my struts would bite it soon after, but I may just go ahead and get the KYB AGX shocks as well.

    Really just want to know if any other Subie owner tried this combo.


    Cheers,

    Blammo

    I have the epic rear sway bar. It seems to work fine.

    I installed it using the stock plastic end links and put it on the softest setting. I have yet to hear my summer tires squeal on an onramp since.

    Hey Obeisance,

    This is good information. I have recently ordered KARTBOY endlinks (front and rear). I have not installed them as of yet. As I was looking at the job, I feel if I am gonna get under my car to change the endlinks, why not just do the rear sway bar too??

    I feel the individual price of the rear sway is a bit steep, but if you buy the sway bar and lowering spring combo, seems there is a bit of value there.

    Anybody use the EPIC ENGINEERING lowering springs on an 09 WRX? I know that my stock struts likely wont hold up to any kind of lowering but it does seem pretty conservative. 1.2" front and 1.0" rear.

    What are anybody's thoughts on EPIC ENGINEERING and lowering a 09 with no suspension mods yet? I want to start. I currently have front and rear KB endlinks waiting to go on. Has anybody else purchased this kit to lower their car or has anybody used an EPIC ENGINEERING rear sway bar with KB endlinks?


    Thanks in advance guys!

    Blammo,

    I've had Epic Engineering adj. rear sway and springs on my 06 WRX for 30,000 with no complaints. Many autocross sessions and track days. Now with 65,000 mi on the clock, it is time to upgrade the stock struts. Therefore I am now in the market for a spring/strut setup, possibly adjustable.

    Epic Engineering = Good investment IMHO

    I took a chance on the great prices for the springs, and I'm pleasantly surprised.
    I say "took a chance" because RSD wasn't able to give me a spring rate from EE.
    Obv they're stiffer than stock but nothing to worry about.
    I wanted the largest drop in ride height without going coils. No ride quality has been sacrificed and it cut a massive amount of body roll. Increased noise in cabin is not really noticeable IMO.
    I'm looking into sways as well, but am thinking about going Eibach or EE for hollow, or Whiteline if solid.
    Don't buy sways w/out upgrading endlinks. Just do it while you're down there.

    dam...this is good information.

    I ordered up a set of coilovers just 1 week ago. Already paid the money. This kit would have been way more cost effective. Thanks for the reply though!!!!

    I was under the impression that stock struts on 09 WRX just cant hold up to any kind of spring upgrade or lowering. Now I may have just ordered way more parts than I really needed. I am just a daily driver and wanted a slightly lowered look. I was convinced by tuners to get coils even for the street. I am sure they know their stuff as well...but whats done is done.

    The only good thing is..coils will give me adjustability and hopefully a performance kick!!!!


    Cheers!

    Pro's and cons to everything. Experienced guys here swear on strut spring combo. I wanted coils as well and chose EE springs because they were made to fit the OEM strut. Life on struts decrease naturally when lowering the center of gravity and these were optimal for me at the time.

    I'm sure you'll enjoy your coils but like everything, you gotta find the balance in functionality and comfort in daily driving.
