My thoughts, too. It sure does look nice without the gap! How's the ride? Is it a lot more firmer than stock? Any rubbing?

My car is almost as low as yours, but I raised the back up because I rubbed with my +33 CE28n. I feel that the car's weight shifts better after raising the back up to around 2 finger gaps.

thanks for all the comments.

looks like a unanimous decision with regards to raising the back a bit. i guess i better do it then before i have the 4-wheel alignment done.

the ride is surprisingly a little more comfortable than stock but i haven't driven the car hard enough around corners to notice any rubbing.

it also looks like everything sits high enough to clear speed bumps except for the apexi exhaust. it hangs really low just before the muffler.

thanks a bunch for looking guys!!!

i'd like to take back my claim about the ride comfort. after driving around this morn at various areas that have uneven & bumpy pavement, i felt how much stiffer it is. i still love it although it is a little bit on the uncomfortable side.

so far i haven't bottomed out yet and have yet to notice any rubbing at hard cornering.

Welcome to the real way an STi rides.


The stock 06' is comfy compared to the 04/05' but it lacks a lot of that edge that makes the STi fun. Plus, it's a 4x4.

Anyway, here's my contribution to the dropped 06' thread.



I was too tired to set it all up properly, I'll do that tomorrow. In the meantime, at least now it has some real springs and a more aggressive look. Some darker headlight housings would look good too, but unfortunately I'm out of $$$ again.
