    2015 WRX Coilovers

    Any opinions on the best brand without hurting my wallet too bad ?

    I only intend on driving my car on the streets for regular use, no racing. But I want a reliable setup that's not going to give me any issues.
    I see Coilovers on subispeed.com ranging from $899-$5000 but I would like to keep my budget around $1500
    Thanks

    Don't know what all they make for the '15 so far, but I know Fortune Auto makes a great coilover, as well as KW.
    The Anti-N00b. Use "Search", YES, you need a tune. NO, you don't need a BOV. Don't try to make you car shoot fire, and change your freaking oil.

    I would first question WHY you want coilovers on the '15 in the first place and go from there. What are you hoping to accomplish besides agitating hemorrhoids?

    I just like the look I'm guessing you disagree with that but that's your opinion

    You didn't answer the question. You just want it lowered? Coilovers will add much more stiffness to an already stiff car. Plus it's more expensive than some alternatives. I like the look of a lowered car...about an inch. More than that and it's just ghetto. Nothing wrong with closing in the wheel gap a bit.

    Your way better off to get some nice struts and springs.
    Then if anything upgrade you endlinks and bushings.
    And even swaybars should you feel the need.
    Coilovers on a 2015, will make the ride incredibly jarring.
    I would ask around and see if anyone is using coilovers on their 15.
    That way you get get an opinion and actually feel what the coilovers will do to your car.
    Keep us updated on your progress.

    The 15 are already nicely done from the factory. I can't imagine how much farther down you need to go lol
    If there's springs out already I don't think there's much of a drop...maybe a little. Cool overs are good for track use but terrible for a daily so keep that in mind.
    A good set of springs and struts will both drop it nicely and provide a good ride comfort

    Thanks for all the advice I always was under the impression struts and springs was the "cheap" way to go but I guess I was wrong lol

    A good set of coil overs will be more than struts and springs. Cheaper coil overs and you'll most likely regret it

    Try and find some reviews or ride in a 15 with similar setup to what you want. I rode in my friends 08 Sti with coils and didn't mind the harshness at all. Put the same setup on my 14 hatch and its 👌
    Daily it as well. Lowered about 2-3 inches.

    do not go cheap lowering with the ride... but with that said... market is gonna be a tad limited for the 2015 models because they are still relatively new... but also... don't lower it... they are already stanced pretty well from the factory...

    yeah I'm also looking to lower, but only interested in an inch or so, and coil overs seem like a pricey option for just an inch drop. Not sure if it's worth it. I too thought that springs were always the cheap way to go, or so I've been told. But never lowered a car so I'm not sure.

    I am in a similar boat... the way I see it... the cost of lowering an inch or inch and half isn't worth it when that money could be used on other modifications to improve the car... unless of course you are DYING to have it lowered and fit that look...

    Coilovers don't make the ride jarring or harsh. Bad/cheap coilovers make the ride poor. Good coilovers ride better than factory setups and perform better. I have AST coilovers on my miata track car with rates way stiffer than stock rates, and I like their ride and love their performance. I personally wouldn't hesitate to put coilovers on my DD as long as they were good ones. I'd expect that you need to spend $2k+ to get a set that rides and performs well. You also need to keep the ride height at a suitable height to make sure the shocks have enough travel.

    Miatas aren't Subarus. I've ridden in plenty of fairly expensive coil over setup cars, and while cheap is definitely worse, even expensive coilovers don't offer some nice nice comfortable ride. KW V3's are ~ $2K, and they're definitely more harsh than stock.
