What difference would it make?
Maybe you just want advice from GC owners.

To make this post useful:
I'm getting Tokico d-specs and I'll tell you about them later...

there are n/a guys in the suspension forum, too. not wanting advice on suspension from someone based on their engine type is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. the turbo guys, for the most part, go faster and demand more from their cars so they know the suspension just as well and the n/a guys. Also, most of the people racing their subarus are using turbo equipped machines, so suspension is important to them.

This is all aside from the forum rules that prohibit off topic posting, which this is. So stop being ignorant and get educated in the CORRECT FORUM. You will get better info/advice there, anyway!

So... if you're not gonna post on topic, please don't post.

good luck.

The Normally Aspirated Powertrain forum on NASIOC is for technical discussion about any NORMALLY ASPIRATED Subaru powertrain parts & problems.

I don't see anything about chassis, just powertrains.

I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a good barber shop in Guam. I like to keep my hair looking nice, and since I drive a N/A car I figured my fellow N/A owners would be the ones to ask.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks!

I knew a guy that upgraded from a 2.5RS to a WRX. He took the KYB AGXs off the 2.5RS and put them on the WRX. 2 days later he was kidnapped by pirates in Milwaukee, and then struck by lightning. I don't think it's a coincidence that that all happened right after he mixed N/A suspension with turbo suspension.

Dude, you shouldn't put a turbo on N/A suspension, it doesn't have the necessary reinforcement to handle boost.

Wow what a bunch of children. Is it really that hard to just answer the guys question? Instead of flaming him then everyone writing retarded comments you could have answered the question then said next time post in the suspension but no everyone on here seems to be in there teens still. To the OP I run KYB Gr2 on my TS and like them. But Im not running a turbo so apperently suspension doesnt mean anything to N/A guys from what Ive read above. Sorry but most of the WRX racers out there are kids that think they know everything. Come on they brag about drag times in an all wheel drive car. Thats like racing a top fuel drag car on a road course.

No, it's not hard to answer the guys question, but if we answer it here then the next guy who is looking for the info that we cover/explain here wont find it because he will be looking/searching in the suspension forum, and it will be, stupidly, in the N/A power forum. I dont refuse to answer questions to be a dick, i do it to be helpful for EVERYONE else. This forum is ****ed up enough already, it needs to be re organized and kept that way for the benefit of users who follow the rules now and in the future.

There are plenty of 2.5i/RS owners who think they know everything, too.

Or, even crazier, is it really that hard to just go to the right forum and read?

Nobody in this thread has provided any sort of useful feedback. Even those who answered the question have said, "I like XXX." Ummmm, great, thanks for the descriptive feedback. Nobody in this thread has even asked the OP any questions to get some idea of what he's looking for in a suspension, what his budget is, what his intended use is, etc etc. Those sorts of questions have already been asked and answered a thousand times in the Brakes & Suspension forum, which is why the OP should have gone there.

I think you need to work on your reading comprehension. In which post did anyone say that N/A guys don't care about suspension? Quite the contrary, you will find dozens of threads in this forum in which Joe New Guy asks, "Hey, what can I do to get more power out of my (insert typically underpowered N/A Subaru here) so I can keep up with my buddy's Mustang/Si/whatever?" and many of the responses are along the lines of, "Don't worry about trying to make big power, just work on the suspension and out-handle him!"

How exactly did you draw that (erroneous) conclusion? There are over 50,000 threads in the Brakes & Suspension Forum, another 19,000 in the Wheels & Tires Forum, and nearly 14,000 more in the Motorsports Forum. Compare that to the fewer than 8000 threads in the Proven Power Bragging forum (where all the bragging about drag times goes).

Instead of giving him what he wants, how about we let him go to the right forum, search the in-depth review and discussion about the comparison of KYB AGX and Tokico D-Specs (done by an N/A owner IIRC).

"Let's reward his behavior, and then correct it!"

Not exactly how it works.
