ASK ABOUT NEW RCE
SWAY BARS FOR STI

Default Gauging interest for GD wagon owners with Koni, Tokico shocks who want springs!

We used to make wagon springs. They worked well when paired with aftermarket firm struts. These springs are intended for Tokico D specs, Ohlins fixed perch( no longer available) and Koni inserts.

We stopped making these because there wasnt enough interest. Lately there has been some interest. So I figured I would post here to see.

If anyone is interested let us know.

Again, this is for 02-07 WAGON owners who have upgraded rear mounts( 04-07) mounts and also Tokico shocks, or KYB shocks, Koni etc.

**** THESE ARE NOT INTENDED FOR STOCK SHOCKS**********

PLEASE CONTACT RCE at sales@racecompengineering.com

Depending on when deposit/payment would be due, I'm interested. I was planning on picking up some black's from you guys since the wagon's were discontinued, but would love to get wagon specific instead. I was going to purchase them sometime mid-summer.

I just recently switched from the Koni/RCE wagon/Group N tophat combo to coilovers since I'm not daily driving with that car anymore. I have to say that they were fantastic when I still needed to use the car everyday on the street and stiff enough when I wanted to go auto-xing. If anyone is thinking about using these springs, you won't regret it.

I used to run the front wagon springs paired with Prodrive STI rears on my Forester(personal handling preference/goals). The Wagon fronts were a nice upgrade from the Prodrive STI springs for the car.. These are certainly a performance level spring given the spring rates but also low (cut your bumpstops). For anyone looking for some fun at the track or auto-x, you certainly do want to step to these kind of rates.

RCE you may want to suggest sway bar rate options in relation to handling balance. To folks not familiar, this kind of setup can promote oversteer in some situations. Sway bar choice will become important for handling balance.

My bro bought the Blacks a while ago and finally got them put up paired with D-Specs. If my suspension goals were different, I'd probably be on the Wagons right now.

what happened is what happened the last time I tried to see where the interest is and there is not enough interest simply put. This isnt a tease, it is what it is, gauging interest.

We have been getting wagon owners into yellows with Dspecs lately and they have been very pleased. The yellows are close enough to the wagons that they are a good substitute.

I already have a set of Koni inserts and 2002 wagon struts to put them in. If I use the 2004 strut mounts, the TIC Scooby921 spacers and the D_rex Koni strut extenders, will the yellows work? Also, is there a need for the saggy-butt shims?

Yellows will work. You don't NEED the koni strut extenders, but they are nice to have.

Depending on the inserts for the rear - if youbought the 04-07 inserts you won't need the spacers.

Again, the shims are up to you, but yellows actually work out to a pretty nice even drop on the wagon.

What kind of ride heights are you getting with yellows on a wagon?

STi tarmac rates. I've already got a set of your wagon springs, but if you make them this stiff with the same or slightly more ride height(~.5") I'll buy another set.

Yeah, me too have already got RCE wagon + Koni setup. I just got it done a couple weeks ago . I would definitely like another set of springs with higher rates. It would be really nice to go even higher rates than the STi tarmac. +1 on gaining some ride height slightly for more bump travel.

Ditto, I really want springs with 250 in/lbs.+ but want to avoid the hassle of doing GC springs. I have Koni yellows in my 2005 wagon.
