LOL seriously! and thank you for that addition. The valving in the 08+ impreza's are just pathetic IMO. Sorry for any confusion between years. Apparently previous 07 and below years are okay with lowering springs?

They don't make a huge difference in handling, but it is noticeable. It's also the perfect drop in my opinion, not too low to get into trouble, but you can tell it's dropped.
Thank you for the clarification, I was just going off of memory lol. If a drop is all you want rather than performance springs than Im glad your happy it's your car
