I hope to get some DMS golds when I can save the money. I am interested in the fact that people with these comment on the near stock ride quality, which I like - I'm not 18 any more. More to the point, neither is my wife .

I also don't want a slammed car, 1" is the MAX i want to go down, and I like having the option of adjusting it.

Anyone know any GOOD mechanics in the Toronto area, preferable east Toronto? Someone who knows Subarus.

schnell.

I'm very interested in the Cusco Zero 2R but i would like to have more information on it. Only problem is that the cusco site is all in japanese and i don't understand anything. I'm also debating what spring rates to get probably 6kg in front (or maybe 5kg) and then 5kg in the rear (or maybe 4kg). Does anybody have any sites or places that i could find more info on this setup?

For this year, I'm going with KYB AGX's and Ground Control adjustable coil overs. Probably going to go with a 315/285 spring combination. In a year or two, I'll likely be replacing that setup with either a Leda adjutsable or DMS 50mm struts

My plan is pretty much as follows: In two years or so, buy an STi or a *GASP* lancer evo for use as my daily driver and auto-x car, put a cage in the RS and use it as my fun machine (road racing, rally, you name it). Once the car has a cage in it, it will be worth laying out the cash for hard core suspension bits. Until then the KYB/GC setup will be more than enough for what I am doing

As soon as i finish university (won't be for a couple of years, plan for my MSc), and get a steady income, i'll be preppin' the RS for mostly rally, i think, but maybe the occasional road races, depending on what i can do right. For the daily driver, and STi would be nice. We'll just have to see how much i earn

DMS 50's with 225/180 springs and street valving. I'll post up a review once I get the car back and put some km's on the new stuff.

Why such light springs? Just want good ride quality?
