Default GAUGING INTEREST-Bilstein Dampers for '08+STI

For many years, the Impreza market has never had direct access to affordable Bilstein shocks due to the influence of a large UK based rally company.

BUT as many of you know, GTWORX has developed an option with Bilstein for the GH chassis Subaru Impreza WRX that comes as a kit with RCE Yellow springs that were designed in conjunction with the dampers. Excellent handling and ride quality from a serious shock and spring system upgrade. The pics below are the kit on a 2011 WRX with the rear circlip in the standard middle setting:









And as many of you have figured out, we're doing it now for the GR chassis STI as well.

These are indeed currently being developed and fine tuned for the GR STI chassis. They will be available for a SPRING release.

And since they're are many out there with RCE Black and Yellow springs already out there we wanted to officially let the cat out of the bag. They will be available as a package with RCE springs OR you can use them with your existing RCE Blacks and Yellows.

These GTWORX Bilstein dampers feature inverted front monotube struts, rear monotube shocks, GTWORX and Bilstein developed SPORT valving matched to RCE Yellows with plenty of gas pressure and low-speed damping for excellent handling, with digressive high speed valving to maintain comfort for a daily driver. The rear shocks feature an adjustable cir-clip for +/-5mm and +/-10mm of ride height change.

The objective is NOT to offer a TIME ATTACK shock, nor do we expect you to have to cut open your oem shocks, getting messy oil everywhere etc and use inserts inside your stock housings. We want to make a simple set it and forget SPORT SHOCK with matching springs. To be clear this is NOT a coilover, but a OEM fitment strut/shock set up with fixed perches just like stock. These are designed for sedan and hatchback using RCE Black or Yellow springs.

Comfortable, but with German sports type handling prowess. With THAT said...these will be excellent on the track!

We look forward to your feedback and interest. We are very excited about being able to offer this system specially tuned for the GR Impreza STI platform!











What do you guys think?

Nice! Hope there is no delays. I need to figure suspension for the spring! Glad there is finally more options for the GR STI.

Here's what Myles from RCE had say about the upcoming launch of the GTWorx Bilsteins for the '08+ STI

Quote:
All parts are in the country and being assembled @ Bilstein USA. With a little bit of luck early next month I will be in Socal doing the ride work. We are doing 2010 LGT at the same time. 2 very different cars but I am looking forward to it in a major way.

Soon I will be able to announce a confirmed price but I see no reason why it wont be like the WRX pricing.

We WILL do a intro buy special for the first 50 sets so anyone who knows they are in should email us and or pm us and we will send you a pre-order form. Once those first 50 are commited then its regular pricing.

GTWORX
M.


We will be taking pre-orders for these so we can be part of the first 50 set intro buy special, save alot of $$$$.

Email me if your interested and I will send you a pre-order form to fill out.
