So make very small runs of well thought out, useful parts. Those seem to sell well. Just don't spend time any money developing something like a strut bar. Look at Nevin's Rear sway bar thread. If you concentrate on the right parts, the market is there. Bling and CAI just aren't going to do it. SVX owners are too practical.
Small structural parts like fender and subframe braces maybe?
But if someone did find a coilover setup that was cheaper than GCs and konis, it'd sell like crazy - cause as has been said, everyone needs struts. (keep in mind that if you buy them already put together, it's not even close to being cheap, and some people like me would prefer to buy something assembled that didn't involved chopping up my stock housings)
I get annoyed when I see that basic coilovers for a WRX can be bought for $800 in some cases, ready to bolt in. BUt assembled Koni/GC's are closer to 1,400.
