Is there a picture of the rear while lowered? How much was this lowered by?

Any idea on the price of the coilovers? I have been dying to get a set for my '13. Suspension before wheels and I just can't wait to drop this thing a bit.

I'm still looking into them, RS*R told me that their coilover kit shipped from Japan would be approximately 2000$. So I'm going to contact Import Image Racing one more time to verify that this coilover kit is for our 2012+ Impreza 2.0i and not the previous generation. If it is, I'll just go this route since it'll be cheaper, plus I've read good things about BC Racing coilover kits anyway.

I emailed and called them to verify that the coilover kit is for our car, and they said they were. So I pulled the trigger on them and I'll keep you guys posted once they arrive.

It was approximately 1100$ with the rear extenders, and I'll get tracking information as soon as its shipped.

I didn't opt for the swift springs, but if I'm unhappy with stock BC springs I might pick them up later.
