Yeah I've seen a number of threads that give examples on this DIY. I was wondering if he'd done that color himself or if he bought them in that color, because I was curious what paint was used.

Awesome thanks! Any chance you have a rear end shot with those taillights? I've thought about buying them. I've seen a bug from my area that pulled them off nicely.

That feeling when you have a new lip to install, but you feel too lazy to do it...

That combo would be okay for looks but not so great with performance or comfort. Look at Swift Sport or USDM STi pinks for springs for stock struts. You may want to upgrade the struts while you're at it, like Tokiko HPs if you want OEM style or Tokiko D-Spec if you want something adjustable in firmness.
Check out the suspension forum stickies--lots of knowledge there.

had that setup and tho i LOVED the progressive spring ride it SUCKED aesthetically because the front sat too high for my liking.

If you do go with eibach id advise you to run a 3/4 spacer in the rear to help even out the stance.

im currently on Tanabe GF-210 and D-spec struts with a 3/8 saggy butt spacers in the rears
