I really, really want to participate in this group buy. However, I'm waiting for the results of a job interview before I can pull the trigger. I'm guessing that by the time the 05 STI units are ready, I will know for sure whether I'm in or out.
CBRD: Use the search function on the brakes and suspension forum, or email whiteline, and I'm sure you can get all the information you want on their damping. I think they'll even give you graphs if you want. I also seem to remember duncangrant made a post in one of the Whiteline Group 4 threads that had information on damping rates of a bunch of shocks and coil-overs.
