Default 05+ Tanabe DF210 springs on WRX struts

I have been searching for the 05+ Tanabe DF springs for a while. The only ones I can find say wrx/sti. So, I know that STI springs on WRX struts seems to be a no no. My question is, since the DF springs are supposed to be only 10% stiffer than stock springs, would they be okay to run on WRX struts? And has anyone done it? Thanks.

I don't know really, but you'll have little suspension travel with those ultra low springs and you'll be riding the bump stops.

Part number is TDF107

They're perfectly fine! I run these in my '07 2.5i
They've been on the car for ~10k mi, first 500 miles on stock then 3k was on STi take off's and I have no problems.
Spring rates are comparable if not the same then the STi springs, just now with reduced potential suspension travel depending on what wheel/tire/offset you run because you may hit rear fenders with this drop. You may need to roll your rears, fronts will never be a problem.

For the record, in my car I can't stick 1 finger between tire/fender, and I can fit 2 in the front.

STi springs on WRX struts are far less of a problem than running low springs such as the DF's on your WRX struts. You'll be close to, if not riding the bump-stops which will wear your struts much faster.

I never heard that they are to low before this, the few I talked with how had them seemed happy with them. Am I to understand that I will be "riding on bumpstops" as soon as I install these?

Check out the Racecomp Springs Sets. I just installed a set on my 08 GR. 100% improvement over stock. I beleive they have 2 types for the 06-07's.
