Anyone swap a wrx suspension with the 2.5i?

Is it worth it if I can get the wrx suspension for a decent price?

Eventually want to run RCE blacks.

Depends on the year. But I wouldn't pay more than $300 for a whole set (which won't happen) and at that price point, you're better off buying new struts and springs.


Speaking of which, would anyone be interested in '12 WRX springs? They should be 217/194. Compared to the stock which should be 151/136.

Did a full Bi-Xenon retrofit... really happy with the results. I'll try to get some beam shots later




EDIT: Beam shots!

@Silver08Waggs having fun? I laugh as I drive by stuck cars and SUVs lol. The snow is really coming down and Its amazing what a set of winter tires can do compared to A/S. I'm on Firestone WinterForce, I don't think I've lost traction a single time unless it was intended. THIS IS GLORIOUS FUN.

Morimoto D2S? I have them in my WRX with Philips 85122+'s. I love them. The high beams are insane.

Yeah, I went with the Retro-Quik kit from TRS which I believe has exactly the same parts. The high beams are indeed insane

It was definitely worth it and everything was plug and play, with the exception of the projectors which just required opening/closing the headlights.

The kits are really awesome.

It is a bit of a pain removing and installing the head lights and a bit daunting baking and pulling them apart the first time but not bad at all once I did one. Just takes some diligence and patients, overall. Definitely worth it though. I couldn't resist having bi-xenon HIDs for a little less $400.

I have and love the kit as well. Just don't be surprised when your hi-beam solenoid gets stuck open

After seeing some comparison shots and reading a few reviews; I really want to upgrade to FXR projectors. I just don't know if I can justify the cost of the projectors themselves and hacking up my stock headlights

I went out to the store earlier, there was about 4" of snow out there, the plows weren't even out yet, and I'm happy to say my General Grabber AT2's handled the snow better than the General Altimax Arctic snows that i used to run.

Didn't know that was common. I've had mine for 2 years now and haven't had any issues yet.
