Question 09 hatch on Eibach Pro Springs with full load, rub??

Im looking at possibly lowering my car. I had coils on my mazdaspeed 3 full load seats down and it would drop the rear of the car but still not rub. Same with my GTI and 2" springs on it.

With the Subie Hatch if i lower it on the Eibach pro kit, and fully load the rear with maybe 600lbs of stuff, will it still be driveable without ruining the tires in one trip??

I ask because i will frequently be loading heavy DJ equipment into the back.

Currently running 18x8.5 RPF1's +40

I can't answer your question, but I wouldn't get the Eibach kit. I bought and installed the eibach pro kit on my 06 Legacy and both rear springs broke. Eibach refused to honor their warranty and I still have half a set of useless springs sitting in the shed.

I had them on my car for about 2 months before I sold it off. Made 1 trip with 4 people, a loaded cooler, and everyone's stuff. It seemed to do okay even though I had to drive on gravel part of the way. No noticeable damage to the tires after 600 miles round trip. It was a 2010 2.5i hatch with 18x8 Sparco wheels... Hope that helps a bit anyways.

I am running eibachs with +35 offset wheels on rolled rear fenders. I can load up the rear with bags of concrete and it doesn't rub, so I'd say you are going to be fine.
