Post just put in eibach pros

well, I must say. I am Imprezed. The overall ride comfort was similar to stock. The handling, however was not. The car is about 1.4" lower. Stiffer and easier to snap the wheel (responsive). Not bouncy or choppy. smooth. For the money I am glad i waited. I have riden in other wrx's with several more common (cheaper) springs that did handle close to this, but in now way did they ride like the eibachs. smooth.

I thought the 98-01 RS wheels were 0.5" wider than 02 RS and WRX wheels... 7.5 vs. 7.

Somebody?

Did the car drop evenly or is the rear a tad bit lower than the front? Do the springs become unseated on hard corners since they are so much shorter?

The springs DO NOT come unseated at all. When I say, i whip the wheel...i am not kidding. The rear DOES want to swing out under these HARD whips.

Height: even, as far as my eyes can see. I'll measure for sure.

Chris...

Did you have to cut the bumpstops for the install? If so..then how much? How is the rear camber? Need bolts? I was looking into buying the adjustable bolts BEFORE I ran into any possible camber problems... let me know..

Chris,
Anxious to see some pics, how did the fender gap fill in? I'm running 18x7.5 215/40 R18 Wondering if the Eibach's will fill up fender gap nicely!!
