Hey guys, new to the forum. I have a 2018 WRX with most bolt ons that's been etuned. No suspension work so far. I wanna eliminate wheel gap but also want better handling as I do plan to do some autocross this summer.

I have a rear sway bar in the mail already.

Now I'm debating RCE Yellows (wanted blacks but can't find them anywhere) but I hear the ride can be pretty stiff. I've also looked into Fortune Auto 500s w/ swift springs. Can anyone that's had experience with both comment on how much of a stiffer ride it would be? This is my daily but I do want to autocross it this summer as well.

If you are autocrossing, it is in your best interest to consider the class and rulebook.

What class do you intend to compete?

I unfortunately started modifying my car before I looked at any rule books... I am likely going to have to compete in Street Prepared where I am going to get absolutely creamed. My wheels are 18x9.5 and I just bought a set of 255 tires and by tire size alone I fall into that class (looking into options to get 245s on my stock wheels but as of now thats likely not happening this year). I am doing auto cross just for fun though and dont expect to be anywhere near competitive this season.

Car is primarily a daily driver and I take out for more spirited drives in the mountains and an auto cross car secondarily. I know they will both be stiffer than stock but if the difference is marginal and the coil overs would provide that much more of an advantage for auto cross I would go that way.

After doing more research it seems that RCE is a higher tier brand and more respected generally speaking than Fortune Auto. The two coilovers that stuck out are the RCE Zeros and Superstreet-1s. Does anyone have any experience with either of these?

The SS1 appear to be an overall better value, adjustable dampening, similar spring rates and cheaper. Zeros are pre-set dampening and more expensive which doesn't make sense to me...
