Default Spring Help :) - SPT Pinks/Crucial...

hey guys,

im looking to get rid of my Fugly wheel gap on my 07' wrx. i've been looking around and i've pretty much narrowed my decision down to SPT Pink springs or Crucial springs...maybe even stcok STI springs. I'm simply looking for somethign that will get rid of the monster truck look, and will be comfortable for daily driving. I don't want springs that will lower my car as much as Prodrives will. As far as i've read, crucial will be about an inch drop and SPT pinks will drop about 3/4 of an inch in the front? Also, if i were to get SPT pinks, should i just save money and buy used stock STi springs. From what i've heard, they're the same as SPT springs. Do they provide the same drop, and would they work with stock wrx struts?

THANKS!

stock sti springs are cheap as hell usually sold at 50 bucks a set...

you still get pretty great rideheight in front which may be a plus for you

spt pinks will have a bit more even drop. (and more of one..)

and your right the spt pinks and the sti oem springs have the same rates

I don't think i wanna go with stock sti springs...i'd like a little more drop than that + i've heard that these springs simply aren't made for wrx's so i shouldnt fool with it.

basically trying to decide between pinks and crucials.

if anyone would like to post pics of their car on spt pinks or crucials that would be great. (i've been looking at pix throughout the forums but they're hard to find...to me )

thanks

The springs have the exact same rate, just a slightly different final drop distance, so what makes you think they wouldn't work on the WRX?

Stock STi springs would be really comfortable, offer some benefits in handling and would lower it a bit. Crucial's are definitely a lot stiffer than the STi and SPT springs. Your ride quality would definitely be worse with those, however a lot of people don't mind it at all. I eventually went with upgraded struts as well to go with my crucial springs.
