Just thinking about lowering my 02 and wondering how tough are the stock shocks. Can they handle it. I used to drive a lowering VW but their shocks suck. Can anyone help me out with this? THanks in advance

WRX shocks are sturdy, but a severe enough drop or stiff enough springs will trash any strut. If your car has reasonably low mileage on it and your stock struts are still in good shape, you may want to go with Eibach Prokit or Prodrives for a somewhat mild drop that won't kill your stock stuff. If you just want an immediate, drastic handling improvement, buy a rear sway bar. :D

since you have an '02 i'm guessing your mileage is about 40k or so. in that case i would get new struts.

i just put prokits on my '04 and they seem to match up pretty well.
