Took a while to do the research and find the parts but the end Result is well worth it.
They were installed on a 2004 WRX Wagon just a few days ago and my early impression is this is an outstanding setup. I drive the car daily and even on the rough roads around here it is very forgiving, I.E if I had a wife or Girlfriend she would not complain....that is till you max out the firm setting , on that setting the car is not something you can drive long distances....it will pound your kidneys to dust. I have it set to 5 turns off the firmest setting and it is great, I might reduce it a turn to firm it up a tad but it feels great where it is.
I put it through some turns and the handling is much crisper, and responsive, I can't get over how good it feels.
As for the look, it is superb, reduced the wheel gap without giving it that stupid slammed look, and speed bumps and curbs do not pose any problems.
It wasn't a cheap setup (550 for the Struts, 300 for the springs, 300 for the Top Hats), but I go with the Mike Holme's Mentality, Do it right the first time, cheap parts means you will be doing it again in a few years

Any problems with alignment? Do you know what numbers you are running?
