like the title says im looking for a turbo back exhaust ,accessport v2, and tein s techs for an 04 wrx. i'm not really looking for a particular tbe but i've heard good (and not that expensive) things about the invidia so that would probably be my preference as of now(would also prefer catless). i'm not in a rush to buy so i'm going to wait a couple weeks to find the best deal. i'm near baltimore md and also im in south jersey/philly on weekdays.

Because they lower the car too much, kill the struts, offer a terrible ride, and suck for handling. Any basic research would have turned this up.

i have done research and the only problems i've heard were about the struts and some noise. the drop is personal preference so just because you think it's too much doesnt mean everyone feels that way.

If that's all you found you didn't look very hard... No, the drop IS too much. That's part of the reason it kills struts and it also lowers the car beyond the range for which the stock suspension design (geometry) is optimal. S-Techs, even by Tein's own admissions, were designed purely for aesthetics and nothing else. If you're looking for handling these should be the last ones on your list.

By all means, please install S-Techs.

We'll be waiting.

I don't think the community can be anymore blunt then they label a part as a suspension downgrade:

The rules.

The first rule of the suspension forum is: Do not talk about S-techs.

The second rule of the suspension forum is: Do NOT TALK about S-TECHS
