I had the steel adjustable ones from eBay on my old GF wagon. Made a world of difference on the rear of the wagon. The front you could feel too.

With that experience, I ordered the aluminum eBay ones that have the pink ends from eBay for my WRX. Completely garbage. Didn't fit at all... plus the metal was super light and bendable. fought with the company and got my $50 back for both, no return shipping costs to me.

Do not pay $200, $300, etc for Cusco, Whiteline, etc. It's a name brand thing. I really with they had nice steel ones for the WRX that didn't cost an arm and leg.

Raceland does have a front one for about $60 that looks very nice and sturdy. It does not have the hinges like the junk eBay ones. VW guys love them and the pics look legit. Someone from NASIOC needs to get this and test it out. I'd trust Raceland for this... but their coilovers... eh, probably not. $60-70 is justifiable. $300 is not.

P.S. Swaybars rock and are much better.
