Default Whiteline Group-4 Coilovers, 02+ WRX

Oct. 4 Update - These are now tentatively sold - awaiting payment confirmation. Thanks for the interest.
Hey there,

I am selling a freshly rebuilt set of Whiteline Group-4 Coilovers. These had 1.5 seasons (summers only) of road/auto-x/track use and abuse, and are currently sitting in California where they were just rebuilt by the Whiteline tech there. Since they needed a rebuild in the middle of competition season, and right before Nationals, I went with a different (and more race specific) set up, so am selling these.

These are an extremely comfortable and "streetable" coilover, that also performs very well under track and auto-x conditions. These are for an 02+ WRX. There is a difference in the rear top hats for 02/03 and 04+, and I have the top pieces for both, so you get those.

I am not sure if these are the same fit for an STi - maybe someone else can answer that.

Jamie (SubieGal) did a review here:
http://www.subiegalracing.com/produc...p_4_review.htm

Another thread - info on spring rates, etc.
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...coilover+group

And another review:
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...coilover+group

Actually, there is a ton of other threads around here if you search about a bit.

They are designed to use with the stock top mounts. I have I ran them first with group-N top mounts which was great, then I changed the fronts to use a camber plate (with some caster adjustment as well), and that was nice. Actually, those camber plates are for sale as well, I will try to get some pics taken to post.

These used to go for something like $2900, but I have seen them on sale for less. I was going to ask $1750 o.b.o Shipping will be from California, so cost depends on where you are. You will not need to worry about a rebuild for a while, and they can be rebuilt locally (California). Not sure if there is a tech on the east coast or not.

The build and design quality of these is impressive. They are a very nice and versatile coilover.


PRICE DROP: $1550


Let me know. Thanks,
Steve

I was going to say $250 for the camber plates. I am in europe now, but will take some pics when I get home in 2 weeks. They are basically brand new - only a few hundred miles on them, and 2 auto-x events.

Hey,

back in town now. I think I replied to all PMs - if I missed one by accident, sorry - let me know.

Here are two pics of the camber plates.




They have both camber adjustment (slide the pillowball mount), as well as castor by choosing which holes to use in the bolt triangle. These are made for GD body style.

Thanks man. And yes - uber comfortable coilover for street, and you also get the track and auto-x performance too. And Arnie is amazingly helpful and awesome.

Price drop - looking to sell soon.

$1550

A 'wish I hadn't just bought a digital SLR camera' bump for you... I wish I could talk myself out of the $1550 but I think these should go to someone who's fast enough to make good use of them.

Thanks man. But remember, these DO make you faster!

A week after putting them on, I took the overall win in the auto-x regional event with these. Of course, new V710s didn't hurt either...

What spring rates are those springs? I currently am running 10/8kg springs and need at least that stiff.

Jesus - you need it that stiff? Your dentist must love you!

That is overkill unless you have a dedicated race car that is not a daily driver. These are the whiteline race set up which I believe is 5/4. You can run 6/5 on them with stock valving - higher than that you probably want to get them revalved.

This spring rate is comfortable, and with the 14 way compression/rebound adjustment, you can stiffen up the ride to a point that is awesome for track / solo2, but still turn it down for the street.

No offence - if you are a dedicated racer and know your stuff, sure, some people like it crazy stiff. But for most guys, they might think super stiff = better performance, and that is simply not always true. It is like assuming that lowering your car really low improves performance, and again, it does not. There are optimal points for everything, depending on intended use.

These are a very comfortable coilover for street use, that doubles as a great performer for motorsports. Running much stiffer means your wife/gf will hate your car.... moreso.

No offense taken. Dedicated race car. You are correct, I would never consider those spring rates for the street. Comfort is not my goal. And, my wife loves my car-lucky me!

Ha! That is awesome man! I too am a man of the wagon - those sedan guys just hate getting beat by a wagon, don't they.

But yeah, for a dedicated track car, there are more appropriate coils for you for sure. Good luck bro!

Our biggest disadvantage is no fender flares, another reason I need the stiff suspension is to keep the tires from rubbing.
