Default Request - want to see your bugeye on RCE Black & Yellow Springs

I'm one decision away from upgrading my suspension. It's settled: D specs with either RCE black or yellow springs. Just wondering if anyone else out there has this setup on an 02 or 03 wrx sedan. If so, please post pics. I have searched this forum for days and not found a good thread comparing the two, and iwsti pretty much only has pics of this setup on STi's. Let's see what you've got.

That looks really really nice. You have the front lowering plates, though, and I am planning to just do the Group N fronts and rears. I'm wondering if I should do RCE yellow springs to make the front end look a little lower. I am not worried about too harsh of a ride, this will not be a dd.

If I hadn't used the lowering plates, I would have installed Yellows. I actually bought Yellows, but when I told Myles I was planning on running them with the lowering plates he advised me that the front would be way too low. So I got Blacks instead.

04 STI Struts = STI Take offs

For reference, this is what the 04 STI strut + RCE Yellow spring looks like:



BTW, it's a really harsh ride. Be prepared to bobble your head on (what used to be) smooth roads.

dspecs are 02-03 fitment so you'll need tic strut spacers for the rear struts to bolt up to 04-07 rear tophats and springs.

I believe you can reuse your stock tophats.
