Very level and just enough of a drop

I think that its only bad when you don't rev match. When you don't it hurts the clutch. Massive revs are bad though. Of you do it right what do you hurt? I can't think of anything.

I usually do as fancy said, about staying in 5th the whole time until I need to stop.

When I need to rev match, its always 2500 rev match to 3500 roughly. That's my sweet spot.

I'm the same way about each wheels individual height.. Your Subi is super clean and lots awesome. As much as I love the clean look, all I want to do is use my car to its fullest potential. Racks, baskets, straps, dings and dents.

Over the last bit I've been transitioning from "watch out that's my car!" To "don't worry about it"

Anyone else feel like that too? Not so worried anymore.

I'm still in the "Back off! " stage... I've had her 8 months now. I still park at the far end of parking lots. I have one door ding from the previous owner, I want no more.

I generally take care of my cars no matter what.

Not sure I ever will, but if I do upgrade suspension, I'll probably do exact same thing.

How much did it cost with everything, including installation?

Thanks man! Means a lot to me. I don't usually take pics of my car, only when someone asks lol. My baby mama took some pics but nvr finished them . Hoping in the near future I find a job to finish my build. So many plans yet so little money haha

Thanks! You'd be surprised with some of the stuff I carried in the car. For awhile, I used it for sideline gigs for A/C stuff. Ladders, hoses, drain pans and a bunch of tools I used to care so much with the dings and scratches but now I'm eh...

Bayson R, pretty common lip nowadays. Axle clearance is pretty close. The frame is slightly notched from the factory, so that helps. Also, my dampening is pretty much set to full stiff.

The ride compared to stock is much improved. A lot more "planted" feeling, especially at higher speeds (50mph+) and on the twisties. Little bumpier as to be expected with nearly double the spring rate all around. I highly recommend the setup.
