Default What are these springs?

Just a quick question that I need answered.

I have a set of COBB lowering springs with the markings of CT-10-T and CT-12-T. Is there any difference in what COBB currently is selling? Can't seem to find anything out with those specific part numbers.

Okay. Now is there anything different from the newer COBB springs. Only reason I'm asking is because now I see that the newer COBB springs come with a different part number on them

Not sure! They most likely have different part numbers for different spring rates

Yeah I would figure that. Google search doesn't help and to get a reply from COBB tuning seems to take a while.
I have a buddy who's interested in buying them and I would like to find out about them before I try to sell them.

Well I got a response from Cobb. Apparently there were two runs of the blue lowering springs offered to the wrx.

The original gave a 2.5" F/2.0" R with an increase of stiffness of ~25% over stock.

The second run only gave 1.5" F/1.0" R with an increase of ~20% over stock.

Default Stock springs

Call me crazy or call me old (58 this month) Got an 02 wrx wagon and it's been lowered. I want to get back to oem springs/ ride height. All I can find is lowering springs or buy new from subaru etc. Surely with all the guys changing to lowering springs, where in the heck are used oem springs for sale? I got "struts complete" from subaru thinking they would be complete, wrong, why call them complete? You can buy the piston seperate from the body? Don't think so. Anyways, another $600 to get strut complete for all four corners, all I need is springs, top hats are kinda rusty though.

Do some research.

You can find used OEM springs free or super cheap.
DONT BUY STRUTS FROM THE DEALER! Get some KYB Excel-G struts. They are the OEM manufacturer and are LOTS cheaper!

Get new front top hats as they are a wear item and should be replaced.

If you look around you can get OEM springs, the KYB struts and new top hats for <$600.

Don't forget about an alignment too.

Do research as this has been covered a bazillion times here.
