Well as of now I have Tokico D specs with Tein H tech springs and is a decent setup for daily driving. It did seam to work ok the one time I autox'd it this year. I have RCE Wagon springs on the way to go on the struts. I've heard alot of good about this setup.

Thanks
Brian

I run H&R springs with Koni strut inserts and Group N top mounts. My car is mostly street driven, though with much spirit and I feel that this is a very good combination. I would highly recomend this combination. And change your steering rack bushings to Whiteline urethane.

something you might possibly consider editing- 4 way, 2 way, etc when talking shocks (or struts ) usually refers to the number of adjusters (rebound, compression- high/low speed), not the "clicks" or levels of adj

also I'm sure this apparent to most folks but a 4 click adj shock/strut could easily provide more range of adjustment than say a 64 click one- the range of adjustment can only be determined by a dynograph- now if the two above examples happened to provide the same range then obviously the 64 click one provides more refinement in adjustment

someday nasioc will have a dynograph (and spring tester) and we can end the speculation on a lot of these dampers

Nice thread, Aba. I appreciate the work you put into this one, and (believe it or not) it's more intelligible than a lot of your stuff I've read.

I've heard complaints of compression variance in shocks coming from Koni (and, presumably, any other manufacturer). Is it worth trying to buy matched sets? Are dynos common for these things? Should I find more important things to worry about?

Thanks, yo

Koni insists that they do dyno everything before it leaves. If you call and ask they will probably tell you the same thing but if you are picky I bet you could call Lee Grimes and ask specifically for them. With Dennis Grant's article out there, they probably get this request a lot more now.

IMHO there are more important things to worry about

Thank you very much, Believe it or not this is the kind of research I like to do before making changes to my car, so Why not post it here and help everyone else thinking about doing it also, or for people just wanting to learn.

The fact that this is more legible than more other threads or comments is because it just sticks to the facts, and its a plain outline of specifications.
When writeing comments or just plain talking, my english limitations show up much more. < me .. hehehhee

regarding the variance in shocks, the kind of variances found (unless the is a defect) they are very minor and not affect the type of driving that we do.
If you are planing on having a track only car , then i would invest some more time and money dynoing the springs and shocks and make sure the valving is correct, otherwise IMHO this would be overkill for an everyday car.

once again thank you for your comments, AbA.

According to RCE, the Ohlins FPS have 25 clicks of adjustment, not 23 as the page 1 states.

My 06 WRX wagon currently has groupN tops all around, SPT wagon pink springs (USDM), and Ohlins FPS and I'm currently set to -12 f, -14 r FFH.

I don't think the Ohlins FPS have "Sportline" in their name, do they? I thought Sportline refers to the coilovers.

Came across this website while doing some research. It lists part numbers and complete information on the sti pink struts for the legacy, impreza, or forester.

http://www.rhdjapan.com/pinpoint_res...il=All&x=0&y=0

Also, there are pink sti adjustable struts for the 04 sti.
