Default Swift springs

Anybody know if there is a place in town that can get me a set for my 04 impreza wagon?

Nobody in town stocks those springs! However, you could probably order them thru Underground performance.

I'm looking to get a subtle drop just to close up wheel well gap - 1.5", 2" at the most and I hear the swift springs are the way to go for wagons. I'm definitely open to other suggestions.

I've even looked at a set of SPT springs, but as far as drop is concerned, all the product info refers to a wrx, which I believe sits a a little higher than my 2.5TS. Sooooo, my ride may be a little firmer with SPTs but the height may still be the same (if I had to take a guess).

1.5-2" drop is subtle?

I don't know much about the swifts, but I have the SPT wagon pinks on my car (05 RS wagon). Noticeable performance increase, with a minimal drop, which is what I wanted. My car dropped .5-.75 inches at the most, and that's what most others report whether they're 02+ N/A or wrx wagons. The drop is even front and rear.

I honestly don't think the drop is noticeable, yet a few people have noticed it.

Do you need help in getting a set for your wagon? We are not local but could possibly offer you some help in acquiring a set.

Regards,
Gary

i will be selling a set of stock sti springs soon. they'll drop it about half of your desired drop. i think the going rate for used sti springs is 50.

Sedan springs can lead to saggy butt syndrome, though.

Just trying to help the OP, Jerry.
