Anyone have any leads on lowering springs/coilovers for the '12+? I keep hoping that one day, something will materialize ... but so far, nada.

Not sure about springs, people keep asking about them but no one has anything apparently.

i saw a posting here somewhere about H&R springs being released for our cars sometime in the summer.

i don't want to lower my car too low, but i would like to lower it an inch and to have a sportier ride.

19mm STI RSB

For those that installed it, did you just use the nuts and bolts that is currently used on your current impreza rsb? or did you get a new set?

This has probably already been answered in here but a quick question guys. I have ordered the perrin perf front stb for my Impreza sedan and plan to order soon the 19mm rear sway from perrin also. I understand you should upgrade the endlinks when you do this as well wheres the best place to get these? And to keep a proper oversteer/understeer balance should I also upgrade the front sway? What if I went with the 22mm or is the 19mm plenty? If I should upgrade the front I've read the wrx ones don't work what other subie models will one work from that will be an upgrade if this is even necessary. Thanks guys

I believe most people who go from the stock 16mm RSB to a 19mm RSB continue using the stock endlinks. At least that's true if installing a Subaru 19mm RSB.

Yeah I called h&r and they said late spring/early summer. The drop says 1.4"f/1.3"r. I just want a slight drop too. Just to make the gap between the tire and fender smaller.

I don't know about you guys, but i'm probably going to RAISE my car. I'm constantly having problems with ground clearance, especially the front end, to the point where one of the front bumper supporting clips snapped at some point. And no, i don't go offroad or smash into curbs or things like that

Submitted a claim to SOA and I have a service appt next week to check the car.

If they say there's nothing they can do, that 1" kit is being installed

After that 1"/SOA fix i'm gonna get a set of flapatax and tints!

Those are nice but I prefer to keep the stock ride height for the snowy winters here.

Does anybody have one of these that can take a pic for me? I want to see how it looks and whether or not it will work with my Kicket "OEM" sub.

Looks like $1800 or so based on the exchange rate.

I remember someone posting this link to BC Racing coilovers, has it been confirmed that they are actually NOT for our model? I was hoping to pick them up after I retrofit my headlamps and fog lights.

ask and ye shall receive.





Not the greatest pics I just snapped them quick with my iPod touch. I don't know how/if they work with an OEM sub on the side of the trunk. I was worried I would have to take mine out when I put in my sub but surprisingly my box doesn't move at all. It isn't exactly a slippery surface the cargo tray, I did put velcro underneath my box just for added security. But I like the tray. Was already in my car when I bought it. I'm glad I have it. A lot easier to clean than the carpet and when I shove my golf clubs in the trunk along with my shoes it doesn't get the carpet dirty and cleaning means just vacuum and spray a little 303 Protectant on.
