Perhaps It was simply a lost email, I know you guys are a good company and I appreciate what you provide for us enthusiasts. I have gotten some springs for the time being. I'll be most likely grabbing some coil overs from you guys next spring.

Thanks tho, and keep up the good work.

I believe they said 2 months. Not sure if that's for the Sti or Wrx springs or both.

I would wait for the yellows, they are most likely going to be a better engineered spring.

Received them today, installing them next Tuesday with a full lip kit.

Hop I won't have to roll the fenders!

Looks great! Any side profile pictures? Any further observations or comments? It's looking like I'm going to "spring" for these soon

Default 2015 WRX and STI suspension TECH thread.

Thanks Wasn't sure about the flaps either but like you, they are growing on me. Plus with the wheels being that large, I avoid many rocks/debris!

That is the final ultimatum for me too, I'm running 20mm spacers and I cry when I hear rocks/debris against my door but the stance looks great.

Took a trip to NY this past labor day weekend so thought I’d post my impression with RCE springs. For reference, I took this exact route prior to having the RCE springs installed. 95N to 295N onto the NJ turnpike, beltway parkway and southern state parkway in NY. 3 passengers and a trunk full of bags. The ride was just as expected; comfortable and never became unbearable at any point in time. No complaints from any passengers which is always a plus. Crappy roads are just that, crappy and whether your car is stock or not, still got to swerve around those potholes. Cruised with a blue bugeye on 295N for a bit when an exit ramp came up. To say the least we had some fun and the STI felt glued to the road. Ended up scaring my friends at first because they had no idea what was going on but they couldn’t stop laughing afterwards . Whether it is driving to your local grocery store or taking a road trip, these springs will not disappoint.If I had the time, I would love to drive this car cross country. Only picture I took was the next morning before we headed out for a wine tour.






Total mileage after arriving at home.

What are the specs on your wheels if you don't mind me asking? I'm just trying to get an idea of what size I should be going for. I really like the look of the wheels, size and offset. The lip kit + mudflaps look awesome btw. Mean as heck!

are the RCE yellows available yet? Also, I live ~5 miles away off Waugh Chapel, can I pick them up in-person?

Lastly, do you guys do alignments?

Thanks

So far I drove ~100km.

It's as comfortable as the OEM ones. Period.

Slightly less body roll, but the difference de is not like "OEM vs lowering springs" on previous models since the 2015 body is already very stiff.

I noticed that the nose does not raise when I accelerate, which is good!

Overall I'm very satisfied. Would not have wanted more drop because I would have had to roll the fenders..

I was planning on maybe switching them for RCE or H&R when they are out but I might just keep them after all!

Will update after 1k

^^ thanks

Sizing is perfect in my opinion. I was torn between +22 and +32 but to go down to +22 or even lower I would've had to sacrifice the weight, 18lbs was my limit!

More importantly you'd be drastically changing your steering's pivot point. +22 would be a 33mm difference in offset. A brand new car with crummy steering feel is no fun.

I normally recommend that folks try to keep closer to stock offset unless they are increasing tire size beyond what stock offset will accommodate, in which case, it's a given that you need to make more room with lower offset. You can still fit a buttload of rubber (if need be) without dropping below a et38-40 really. And while it looks neat, a lot of guys are running way more tire then is needed (especially on a street car). Just because you can fit a size 14 shoe on a size 8 foot doesn't mean you should, nor would you want to go for a jog in them lol We've got to remember all of that is unsprung rotating mass that the car needs to accelerate, slow down, and steer with.

Anyway, just throwing that out there. I've definitely got nothing against plus sizing wheel+tire combo, it's just one of those situations where it's easy to "get too much of a good thing" real quick.
