I dont know how long they will survive off road b/c my car is a street car only. The set up wasn't cheap, about $1300 dollars for struts and springs and that was the group buy price. I think the set up is now around $1500 bucks. I know is sounds like a lot, but considering the only other real option was the koni's and they were not specfically designed, tuned and tested for the '08-10' WRX body style like the Bilsteins were. They are definately tuned for really agressive driving, track days and auto-x'ing. Definately worth the price if you ask me, since you cant really get a great coil over the the same price and these are install and forget, so no fiddling around with height adjustments and bound/rebound adjustments. Not sure about the backs but the fronts are rebuildable as well.
