It would cost you $400 plus $30 for shipping.

We would also charge a $300 deposit until we receive your cores.

The grand total is $730, you get $300 back when we receive your cores.

I finally took the time to get the inserts out of some 05 struts I recently. Hopefully I'll have them shipped off by this weekend, as soon as I find some replacement nuts for the bottom of the strut assembly.

The dyno sheet legend is correct, it illustrates which line is front and which is rear.

The bump (compression) damping results are above the x axis, the rebound damping results are below the x axis.

Hopefully that helps.

Oops I should have read that graph better. My bad and thanks.

Bookmarked. This sounds great and I think I'll be shipping my sti struts to get re-valved asap. I've been putting off the D-spec option for about two years because of the clunking reports on those. The only down side is that my car would be sitting at the shop here in NH waiting until the struts got shipped back so turn-around time will be important.

Oh, I'm happy! I finally found some replacement nuts for the ones that are rusted on my OEMs at Ace Hardware (don't waste your time at Lowe's or Home Depot). I'm sending you guys my inserts (e-mail will follow shortly) to be revalved, and I'll handle the regreasing myself.

I'll be getting a set of the tarmac struts soon. Shipped them to Feal on Thursday. I'm driving around on a set of freshly-regreased OE struts now, so that I can compare properly when I get the revalved struts. I was using Tokico DSpecs in the rear for a while. Pretty good for what they are, but hopefully these will be better for my purposes.

I called Feal last Thursday, as my inserts arrived a day early. Spoke to Odi for a few minutes about the particular springs I wanted, and he'll be contacting me this week for payment when they're done!

No, it's the nut at the bottom of the strut that holds the insert within the assembly.

Still in the WRX wagon or have you acquired another 2.5rs?

You should be able to get this at Ace, I'm guessing it's an 8x1.25/1.50 nut.

We just got a call a week ago from an avid autox competitor. He runs the stock class and really likes the tarmac spec valving we did on his 05 STI.
