My brother in law has a stock car, and my car does look lower then his. I haven't really drove the car so the springs I believe has not settled. I put the springs on when the car had. 300 miles on it I wonder if having such a new suspension affect the drop of the car. I'll take more photos outside of the garage so we can compare further.

Anyone looking for lowering springs? I have these laying around with less then 300 miles on them. B&G springs 1.2" drop front and rear. I paid $240 plus tax, only asking $125 shipped or $100 local pickup in San Diego.

Sorry, scrolled up. haha

Would you say the car doesn't have as much butt sag, or should I combine these with a pair of butt spacers?

Am I correct in assuming that if you can use 08+ WRX coilovers on our 12+ cars, can you also use 08+ WRX aftermarket strut/spring combinations?

Question Clarification

So after trifling through this thread. The conclusion to lower a 2013 impreza, would be '08+ wrx springs. Easy.

Now, what about any camber issues involved with this?

Obviously a 1.2" to 1.5" drop from springs alone wont create a huge difference.

But if anyone has some insight on this it would be great.

Really just want to know if i'd have to do anything else along with springs? i.e. sway bar, camber plates, etc. etc.

When I had my springs 1.2" drop the ride was awesome and no camber plate needed, just an allignment.

The camber in the rear will be aggressive unless you buy new rear lower control arms. Honestly, I have changed the LCA and Toe arm and about to throw in STI rear shocks and a whiteline rear sway bar and brace, but if I could go back and do it again, I would leave the rear alone. Just get an alignment. I would only buy a set of 14mm whiteline camber bolts to make sure the car holds the alignment and call it a day. Just my opinion.
