Possibly thinking about selling my SPT Front Strut Bar and my Rallitek RSB with HD Endlinks. PM me if interested...

I'll let it go to you 2.5i guys first before I post on Classifieds

Possibly looking into springs. What do you guys suggest? I have 2010 wrx struts/springs waiting to go on but want a drop. Come spring I will most likely throw in some Konis, so blowing the stock struts isn't too much of a concern if I can run them through the winter. Considered coilovers but our winters suck here so negative on that.

If your planning on using this setup in the winter you should look for a mild drop like RCE yellows/blacks which are usually about an inch. I love my koni/rce yellows but i havent had a chance to try em out in the snow yet.H&R springs are also very good quality with less of a spring rate but offer more of a drop. Epic springs are for aesthetic purposes only and they don't share what spring rates they have. I believe tanabe and tein s-techs also make springs for the wrx(our suspension) but I'd definitley stay away from s-techs IMO. For a quick price reference you can goto rallysportdirect direct.com and choose any Wrx model for 08+ and you can see all the detailed specs from their. Goodluck on choosing

I have epic springs and they are not bad. Decent drop and they ride fine to me. This is my first set of springs though so I don't have much to compare them with.

The RCE yellows/blacks are probably what i'm going to get. The Epics look good but I've read better about the RCE's. I'm not looking to be slammed, just to have a nice flush/raked look.

So I got my Impreza 2.5i after having my 02 Legacy GT (Non-turbo) for five or so years. I feel that the Impreza doesn't handle quite as well as the Legacy did and am guessing that it is largely due to the lack of a rear sway bar. I am considering putting one in to get it feeling closer to what I was used to. Plus it seems that is one of the biggest bang for your buck upgrades. My only concern is that I bought a certified pre-owned car and am worried about voiding the warranty. Is this even something I should worry about? Would going through a Subaru dealership help prevent any warranty issues down the road? Thanks a ton in advance for any input.

It'll only void the warranty if the modification led to the problem.

If you don't know how to install 100% correctly, get installed by dealer with work warranty...



But i doubt a swaybar Will inhibit your warranties, unless you don't know how to argue..
