Would it be ok if I upgrade my struts then lower it 2 inches in the front and 1.8 in the back? I like to have my car low...God said:Verdugo is correct. Over 1.5 inches and the struts will take a beating from slamming into the bump stops continually. Stick with 1-1.3 inch drop. Tein, Eibach and H&R are all excellent quality. Tein are the cheapest I believe.
Great I like a little drop not 2 much so TEIN is it, thx Verdugo. I think I will go with Koni insert, what do you think.Verdugo said:No problem
You're pretty much good to stick with name brands like the aforementioned...and as far as stiffness goes, I can't really help you there. My Teins are only a little stiffer from stock, but enough to be noticeable. I think the main difference among current WRX springs is the lowering height. My Teins probably lower the car the least, about 1.2" in front and 0.8" in back. The Tanabe springs are just about 2" in front and 1.8" in back. You probably don't want to go lower than 1.5" or so though, since any lower will put too much stress on your stock struts...but don't take my word for it There's more than a few people out there using the Tanabe springs...how their car turns out in the long run, we'll see.
