i have a set of spt springs and they are reallllly low. im getting annoyed with bottoming out and having to brace for impact on every bump, whats a good set of springs that will only drop the car an inch or less but will still give me a little better handling. thanks

^ these would work w/ uprated struts =- STi/Koni/and the like- too firm for oe struts

for oe struts lots of guys running STi takeoff springs (04-07)- lowering is minor at ~ 10mm, ofcourse these would work even better w/ uprated struts too

yup- they have the same spring rates as the WRX "pink" springs- 223/192- it's a good bump from the oe WRX rates of 168/117. the drop is very close as well ~ 10mm (pinks may be closer to 15mm)

go to the for sale forums here, nasioc, i-club and iwsti

lots of these for sale used- usually in the $50-75 ballpark- can't beat that :)

it would take years and years to wear these springs out- plus many of these springs are very low mileage- STi guys tend to go to the aftermarket stuff relatively quick :)
