Question What to do next?

well i want to start modding the suspension a little bit. ive got the jdm sti struts with eibachs and a whiteline rear sway bar but was curious as to wut would be the best bang for the buck for less body roll and better handling in cornering and all together. are strut bars the way to go or front sway bar or wut? just curious as wut to get. and i kinda want a lower stance. the eibachs are a little high in the front. any info would be great!

Thanks!

Probably a good set of rubber and a moderately aggressive alignment.

Strut tower bars have minimal effects in our cars alone, but are noticeable later on when combined with other chassis stiffening support.

It depends. For a street car, whatever you want. If you plan on tracking the car in NASA/SCCA road race events, and item like the RPM brace will bump you into some insane classifications.

Think before you buy.

I dont see camber plates and a custom alignment. I would focus on those as they allow you to do much more than a set fixed part.

Sorry havent been on in a while. but it is just a street driven car but like evry other suby driver i love cornering kinda quick and cant stand the body roll and understeer. just lookin for things that could eliminate that a little bit.

Really S-Tech are for aesthetics only, not really a performance spring. I don't know your options for the 2.5i though...do they have the same struts as the WRX?
