from what you say, I might try and put the springs in first and go from there!! (tomorrow ? )

How much drop did the springs give you?
pics?
Their website says 1.2" drop front and .6" rear. I didn't take any measurements before/after so I can't confirm their numbers. Here's a couple pics.

The offset on the wheels is low enough that I haven't had any issues. My summer wheels will be 8.5" wide and have a higher offset which worries me though.

This seems like a decent thread to post this video I made of my car getting detailed:

Looks great!
Yeah, I suppose the Megan site says I'll get a bit more drop (1.5", front and rear), so I should still play it safe and save myself the post-install hassle of rolling the fenders then... I'll just do them first and play it safe, haha.

Finally took some respectable pics of my '02 OBS that's partially through getting a facelift...

Wheels are 5Zigen ProRacer GN+ 17x7.5 +35 (lowering springs are in the box waiting for this term to be over, should be a 1.7-1.9" drop considering the OBS springs)


Got the rack on just in time for riding season (bmx & mtb)... factory crossrails, Thule 871XT fairing with custom adapters and Thule Sidearm rack. When I can afford to, I'll be getting a second tray.
And yes, I know the bumper cover is cracked, I'm working on a solution for it.


The interior is bone stock, minus the audio equip... Suggestions for shift knob?

Finally something to post about. I've had these wheels sitting in my room since December waiting for funds and time. Well, today when I went to get my oil changed my mechanic got me an insane deal on some great tires and heres the result...



I got a set of Pirelli P Zero Rosso's for basically nothing, the car feels like a go cart now. Next up is going to be a drop and new sway in the front. For the first time since I've owned the car, it is starting to feel like it's coming together.

Ya, a 1.5" drop in the rear would be pretty aggressive, mine are damn close to rubbing at full compression in the rear with just the .6" drop.

Keep in mind that I'm already 10mm taller than a regular impreza (OBS suspension ) and my rear springs, despite what my dad says, are a bit saggy.... lol

I'm just hoping I dont have to do any pulling, just some rolling.

You'll def have to roll, the problem with obs suspension is that really any spring is a pretty big drop. I'm looking at my setup gettin ready for a drop and definitely see needing a roll at minimum.

Those have saved my car from many nasty dents before. Probably one of the best parts of the obs package.

Explain the extreme low please, I ordered some BC's myself but didn't see this as an option. Is that with the shorter shock bodies?
