hey kelley

i think your right. i have yet to see anyone comment on these. personally, i like the set up. i was told 280f and 220r spring rate wise. definatly better than the 350lbs springs you find on alot of the jdm coilovers.

fwiw, stay away from too stiff springs. they ruin the WRX's ride. some might dissagree, and everyone is entitled to there opinions, but i myself cannot understand why anyone would ride on 350lbs springs and claim they"have a nice street ride". they obviously haven't driven longer than 2 hours or have kidneys made of titanium. not to mention how much stress the frame goes through. I couldn't figure out why i had so many rattles in my car until i took OUT the tein lowering springs.....

i have been in many many subys with all sorts of different CO's and suspension set ups. The WRX's chassis is so different than any other suby, it is impossible to compare old schol rules to these cars. I really feel DMS has the right idea. Softer springs. I put on my STOCK springs instead of my old Tein lowering springs (on agx's mind you) and it was like night and day. the car handled a million times better. Now i have DMS, and there is no comparison. ask bobski(another bay area member). i took him for a ride and let him drive my car. he giggled uncontrollably almost the entire ride.....


anway, i will quit rambling...

i am just as curious how these ride.

anyone have these yet? anyone?

josh

Actually retail is $980 I think. They are essentially an HR shock with a softer single spring (progressive). Shoudl work well for a mild upgrade at a decent price. Height adjustability for under $1000 but no damper adjustability.
