Tein S-techs are KNOWN to be horrible on subarus b/c of WAY too much drop. The '08+ WRXs cannot handle much of a drop (anything over an 1 inch is too much) and it will kill your stock struts. I HIGHLY recommend you search some more b/c this has been discussed many times and stay far from S-techs and even the Cobb springs are not the best. Even those H&Rs drop too much

In short both the H&R, Cobb and S-tech springs have way too much drop and will ride like crap on an '08+. If I had to do just springs I would go with Swifts:

2008+ Impreza and WRX (sedan and hatch)Lowers sedan 0.75" front/rear, hatch 1.0" front/rear. Not for 2008+ STI. http://www.erzperformance.com/Swift_Sport_Lowering_Springs_Subaru_Impreza_WRX_wa_p/4f906.htm

I have also seen few good reviews of Epic Springs. However, the 08+ struts cannot take too much so I would highly recommend you look into the GTWorks/RCE spring/strut combo.

The stock dampers are absolute garbage. If you care anything for the handling of your car do not just fit lowering springs. The Konis are a great solution to this.

Here's a couple pics of Tein SS-Ps on my '08. I think I'm gonna go with the spring/strut combo from GTWorx/RCE for my 2011.

I'd definitely look at the GTWorks RCE combo pack. Best suspension package I've seen so far in terms of springs/struts, and the price is solid.

I agree. Probably gonna order them in a few weeks.

As for the Tein SS-Ps...they were ok. Just ok. I had Cobb springs on the stock struts before (big mistake), so the Teins were a big improvement. There's definitely better options out there for coilovers.
