Post pictures of your lowered 2011 Sedans and please give us the info on the suspension set-up, it being springs, struts or coilovers. I think this will help a lot of people decide on suspension upgrades. With the pics, please give us your honest impression of the set-up...

Good idea. There are so few options available right now for suspension drops on the 2011s, but if people add to this thread, it would be a good reference. As soon as I drop my 2011 WRX, I'll update. Oh! I have to update my vehicle info to the left!

Which ones did you get? NF210, DF210? Where'd you get them? I was looking at the NF210 as they look like they won't pound me to death with increased spring rates. Chicagoland roads are the worst in America.

BTW, you can host photos on Flickr now, which I believe is free.

debating whether or not to go with coilovers or just springs since I live in an area that sees snow for 5 months of the year.

The coilovers eliminated the cars body roll, it feels way more stable and I can always adjust the ride height and comfort whenever I want, plus not a big fan of spring on factory shock.






And here the big difference between factory and BC coilovers

Awesome! There aren't many reviews on the H&Rs, so I'm glad to hear that you like them. I'm looking at getting a set of those too
