Default Help with Eibach Pro Kit lowering springs!

Hey! I'm buying the Eibach Pro Kit lowering springs for my -07 WRX. The way it looks now is way to high. My question is if I buy these will my exhaust tip and bumper scrape everytime I go up on a speedbump or a steep curv? Anyone who has these springs that have this kinda experience about them?

Thanks a lot / Tim

lol it depends on how you drive.. lots of drivers in scic do the infamous wide turn while exiting driveways to avoid scraping anything

it's coz of the angle at which you're going over.. oh man, i've pretty much perfected it.. but it's still more difficult to pull off on a sedan.. coupes are way easier to maneuver

You won't scrape. Youll be fine if you take it slow. The Eibach prkit looks nice as hell after the drop too. Good luck.

Why did you choose those springs?

Cause my friend has them on his STI and they look nice. I just didn't know how they would look on a WRX.

I have the Eibachs, and I can't wait to replace them with my new RCE Yellows. The drop on the Eibach's is OK, but the spring rates are nothing special. If all you are after is a nice drop, then I think you'll be reasonably satisfied, but if you want much better performance over stock, I recommend taking the time to consider some other options.
