Default spring height

Am I alone in thinking the gap between the top of the front tyre and body is a little too large on a 2006 sti?

Do Subaru make any springs to drop it slightly - I want to keep my rims stock but might drop it a little even if it is for cosmetic reasons...

You'd be better off with Prodrive Springs, IMHO. They barely drop the ride height, yet even out the wheel gap. They also have a marked improvement in handling, etc.

http://fastwrx.com/prodsprin.html, but you can probably get them local.

I'm not one for slamming cars, especially cars that are fun on dirt roads, so I always recommend Prodrives.

just calling dynocomp for a $ - I can get them cheap in the UK but it's the taxes bring them back in that'll sting...

COBB has a good drop. a couple westsiders run them so you can check em out at the meet. Tein has a good drop too.

STi pinks drop the car slightly but their around $350
