Default eibach springs

so after doing some research, when it comes to springs for the 08/09 the eibachs seem to provide the drop i need, plus it wont blow out my stock struts in a week. 1.4inches in the front, and 1.2 inches in the back.

Anybody had any experiences with them locally? There isnt alot of selection out there in terms of springs for the 08/09, and it came down to eibach or cobb for me... just wanted to hear from fellow VIC'ers on what they think

Shell out a little bit more money and go with some coilovers, even a good used set. You won't be disappointed.

if you're looking just for springs,

don't forget to check out the Tanabe GF210 and Tein H-techs and Prodrive (if they still have them around).

I'm running on H-tech's and it's been a good 2-3 years with no problems (knock on wood) so far.

Yeah, I'm from 3gwrx too.

I dont think tein has a spring for 08+ WRX.
Only for STi, not really sure.
Swift lower 1 inches.
Looking for something just for daily driving,
hopefully able to last 4~5 years at most.
Let me know if anything new pops up!
