Would this be an option for us wagon owners as well? I still have my stock wagon struts as a complete assembly at home from when I switched out to D-Specs and RCE wagon springs.

I've never really "seen the light" with the D-specs and have been wanting to try a new route...this may be a consideration. Just looking to see what the whole spectrum of options are.

Check it out if you're interested in this service, so far i am very happy with them!
I read your review, great job! I'm seriously considering this, except getting the OEMs revalved to handle the RCE Blacks rates. I'm ditching my PSS9s and probably going this route with the Blacks and RCE lowering camber plates.

I've been eying the RCE Blacks for quite some time now.

If you buy 04 Sti struts for your wagon we can valve them for RCE wagon specific springs (spring rates: 275 front, 259 rear).

I think he was asking if you could revalve the stock wagon non-STi struts.

I assumed so as well. It is possible, but we do not offer this service for the non inverted twin tube struts like the OEM wagon struts.

I have not used Feal's service, but I do have a comment about revalving.
As an avid Motocross rider, I am well aware of the amazing capabilities of well valved dirt bike suspension. Properly valving mx suspension is an exact science that requires years of trial and error and a thorough understanding of how suspension works. Feal also offers service for MX bikes, which tells me that he is likely very skilled in valving.

The STi struts use spring-steel shims of varying thickness and diameter, which flex at different pressures and speeds, to allow oil to flow through the piston. This is very similar to mx suspension. So really, the strut can likely be valves to suit just about any requirement.

Based on that, I am confident that this would be a sweet option for anyone!

Very interested. I'm not in a place to do this right now on my STI, though I want to, but I do have a set of H&R coil overs on my Boxster that I am not happy with and have to resolve this before doing the STI. Please shoot me a PM if you can rebuild these. The spring rates are in the 200 range, but the dampening is way to harsh for the street and the fronts lower the car too much even at full ride height. Is it possible to install a longer shaft to fix this?

This service sounds great. Just remember you will need to realign your car after pulling out the struts to avoid poor tire wear.

I will be looking to do this service as soon as I can get the time to get my struts off the car.

In my opinion the OEM struts on the STi are setup completely wrong for street use. I also have a BMW 335i that handles great and rides great as well. For some reason the Japanese engineers think the only way to make a car handle well is to stiffen the suspension to the point where the car no longer rides well at all. BMW's know how to do both, great ride and great handling better than any other car maker out there.

This re-valve of the struts sounds like just the right thing to cure the poor STi ride.

^ Exactly. I'm looking for a (cheap) set of OEMs to send in since I DD mine.

SUBSCRIBED! I'm really hoping the adjustable is an option soon. It's almost crazy how many more options WRX's have by volume of products on the market than STi's...

Thanks for bringing that up. We have learned a lot from ongoing testing with MX bikes. We have spent years at various MX tracks with various riders revalving shocks. This background is what inspired us to get into Rally car suspension, and then street cars.

We can. We can revalve most coilovers that are on the market. Stance is a company that will sell wear parts as well.
I believe we spoke on the phone today


We now have a set 2004 STI struts as cores for those who can't wait. We are taking a $300 deposit until we receive your straight, non corroded struts.

^ Great news for someone! I finally scored a full set of struts/springs/top mounts. I'm waiting on the bumpstops so I can replace those, then I'll be sending them to you guys for the service.

+1, I converted my under sprung, MX damped YZ250 2T to a competent woods weapon with new springs and complete fork and shock revalve. Just to put in the comparison, my bike retailed for $6095 new, the DEAL on the suspension work was $800 (including new fork springs, I got a new rear that was the right rate from a friend). That's over 10% of the value of the bike and it made a WORLD of difference...

Now if the 09 WRX's were rebuildable... my car would be on jack stands today!

With the WRX you can easily do Koni inserts.
