I ordered them through Fortune Auto, they happen to be headquartered about 20 minutes from where I live.

As for performance, I suppose in theory a slightly softer spring would cause slightly more body roll. But honestly, the springs are so much smoother that the car is much less skittish through turns, especially turns with any sort of bumps. Having the car be much smoother makes me feel more confident when taking a turn, so I'd say the handling has been improved.

During my research, I found one guy who swapped his ISC springs with Swifts, but he also revalved the ISCs. I'll try to find that thread again, and I'll post the link. He was the person I talked to that finally convinced me Swifts were worth it.

Thank you for that info. What spring rates did you go with?

Edit: NVM. Re-read your first post and saw 7k,5k. Thanks again for the helpful info. I'll be ordering these ASAP.

IMO, proper matching valving would make a much bigger difference than springs.

And so are every other budget coil-over set-up out there.


If you (or rather ISC direct) don't want to post the dyno-graphs then say so. Don't keep circumventing the issue like who has something to hide.

We have nothing to hide. Were working with a small local business to get the graphs, it takes some time.

As Ive said in a couple PM's and in this thread, when I have them I will post them.

Thanks all!

I apologize for my outburst, it was a bit out of line. I'm anxious to see how these things performed is all.

After 8K+ miles my ISC coilovers still feel like the first time I drove away from AJW's lot. No issues whatsoever other than a little bit of noise when hit large bumps. Here's a couple of snapshots of my car from a recent meet we had at the D*CK's Parking Lot in Waterford, CT. I've met a couple who's sponsored by AJW I believe. I forgot the names.

Also BIG THANKS TO ANDREW and AJW for properly installing the coils and giving a great price!

Bought these from Importimageracing and installed them this past weekend. Very easy to install, adjust, and the ride (set at 16 all the way around) is a vast improvement from the stock WRX set up.

Very happy with my choice and snapped a quick iphone pic today after I got my alignment done:

so after much research and internal debate, i think i'm leaning towards the ISCs. what spring rates would you all recommend for a 2011 STi sedan? the car is mostly daily driven (aggressively as you would expect) with some twisties on the weekend and 4-5 track days per year.
the big thing i want to avoid is bounciness that i experienced with previous set ups on GC8s and 05 STi.

Ordered the Swift springs yesterday, should have them by Friday to install this weekend. I will post a review here when it's all said and done. Thanks again StiHokie48 for your help.

Hey, im just checking in. placed my order with IIR today for the Street/comfort setup to install on my 01 RS. i was originally going for new adjustable shocks but for the cost, these cannot be beat. especially with the pricing the way it is. after i recoup the costs of my current suspension, these coilovers will be LESS than i would have spent on a full set of Koni Yellow inserts from Tirerack.com.

im already on H&R progressives and the stance is very aggressive. there is a No-finger gap on the front and a Negative-finger gap on the rear *tucking tire*. im on 225/45/17, OZ superleggera's, 17x8 and +35mm offsets.

Edit; are there any ride height recommendations that would optimze the GC's suspension geometry and minimize my dynamic camber/bump steer during HPDE/Track days?

im looking forward to the separate height/preload adjustments as well as the dampening adjustments. will the preload's be correct, out of the box? should i break the top nut loose and retorque it or will they be properly retorqued? also, i saw one vendor that included the rear extenders and i thought they were now included but i didnt see them on my invoice. also, for material protection, would the bags also be able to protect the Thrust bearings? or are they sealed and wont have an issue with dirt/grit? if i dont put bags over these, i was wondering about dripping melted wax into the threaded collars to keep out contaminants. i want to avoid something that will remain tacky and actually attract dirt like some sort of lube/anti-seize.

that said, i cant wait for this backorder to be over!

I installed mine and have like -6* of camber on my back passenger side With my rear camber plate in the middle position. I switched bolt holes over in the plate and got the wheel to where it should be, but how can I fix it to be like the other wheels, so I can put my camber plate back to the neutral position?

Sounds like you have something bent or not lined up right. Has the car ever been in a collision?

Nope. I may tear it apart and take a better look tonight. Any other ideas? I installed both the Camber plates the same way so it shouldn't be that
