glad you said something. i was thinking of going the $1k coilover route (ISC $850, BC, or HVT) because everything was there in one package but i wanted an option that required minimal maintenance I don't think the TiC rep was attentive to that detail.

i have seen the wagon springs on RSD and TiC but not on their actual site. i would like to go the Tokico route also but I was having difficulty finding them but now I know the reason. when I am looking for them should i be searching for 02-03 struts? i was on one site that said the Tokico were for 02-05 wrx but not 06-07 which i found strange. I really didn't want to cut apart my stock struts for the Koni and the Tokico seem to have more adjust-ability than the Koni. Is this true (7 turns but you have to start at 4 so 3 turns??? vs 2 turns)?

all I need for the Tokico is the spacers and new top hats right? and the spacers are on the rear struts only? and i salvage the old dust boot, bump stop, and coil seat from the stock set-up. did i get that right?

i think the Tokico have lifetime warranty not sure what the Koni's are at...
