Default Sti Pinks VS Prodrives for 05 Wagon

I'm debating which spring to choose between these two. I hate the saging butt syndrome some springs have on wagons and haven't seen that exhibited for these springs. Wagon owners with Sti pinks or Prodrives, what do you like or dislike about them?

Prodrives aren't wagon specific but work well (ride height) as they lower more front than rear- thus offsetting the "sedan sag" for a prety even drop.

The STi springs will lower less than the Prodrive's, but provide firmer spring rates- they are wagon specific so you'll see a a even drop (~ 10mm).

Performance the nod goes to the STi springs- aesthetics if you like lower- Prodrive would get the nod.

I ran the STi wagon pinks for over a year (w/ jdm GGA inverted struts)- great spring- firm, but not overly firm- drop was very mild and even
