Im not sure what series they were. It was the WORX TUNING car. They are also a Ohlins dealer who I was going to recomend. Im not sure if they are working this week but I wouldn't make any decisions if I were you until you talk to Mike there at Worx Tuning. www.worxtuning.com

My friend in Taiwan give me killer deal on the Zeal coilovers when I had my Evo, dunno if its the same for STI, but I can ask.

and yea you can stop bumping about ride in KW V3's or Ohlins, if ppl have them here, they would've already inform you. My cousin in socal run Ohlin struct w/ RCE springs on his 05 STI, he loves it.

Ohlins are the best, I have had them on a few GC8 I imporyed from japan! Stephen At IAP has a used set off a GDB and they are excellent! I would rather have a used set of ohlins than any new set of coilovers!

I'm real close to ordering a set of kw v3's for the wagon...real close. My cusco's are about ready for a rebuild(one is leaking), so I'm thinking of trying out the kw's instead, with some stiff rates.

If you get KW V3's - make sure you get a NEW set with the thicker flanges. Several AutoX'er's have bent them BAD. I've personally seen them way bent in Topeka at the Finals. Myles at RCE knows this. Jay B

I'm thinking of getting the Tarmac II's as well. I'm hesitant though without a ride on them. Jay have you ridden on them? If so, what spring rates and what did you think?

The RCE's look good on paper, but RCE won't release anything on their dyno plots. Myles advised these were more tuned for road courses than AutoX, so I've reduced my list down to those that use Koni inserts only. You would probably like the KW's or RCE's since they have helper springs and can be made to be more comfortable for daily driving.
