I'm thinking about getting a set.. I think my struts need replaced on my '07 WRX and I would get upgraded struts which wouldn't be cheap.. :/

Depends on what you want for ride quality. If you don't mind the harsh ride I'd recommend them. I only had them on the car for a few months so I didn't adjust them at all, or change the stiffness settings. I'll play with them a bit more this year.

A nice strut/spring setup is better than a cheap coil set up. I'm about to buy tokico dspecs with RCE Black springs and group n top hats. Still will end up being cheaper than buying a nice coil set up.

There are also several different spring rates that you can choose from. Also, I had mine set pretty much to the middle dampening wise and it rode really well. Granted, it's a bit different animal than a Subaru but still the same coilover. The ride was very comfy while still letting you know you're riding on a coilover. Much better ride quality than Teins I've had in the past.

I'm sure if I changed them it would be a bit better.. My ride is pretty harsh now (at least I think so.. compared to when I first got the Prodrives)..

What's the price on the dspecs + RCE blacks tho??

Umm can I put in a plug now and say I want a ride in it! . I broke in two of my friends cars on there build who didn't live near the shop. I was very impressed how clean your engine bay is. I was going to get your intake mani but my intercooler pipes need to run the other way and I don't have the time nor the resources to do it this year. Car looks great man. Keep it up.

Oh and 96accord, nice to finally meet you in person. LOL.

Just get coilovers, Jeff. You'll be happy trust me.

You can set the dampening pretty soft and they will ride very nice. Just make sure you go a little lower than you are now with your Prodrives (yes I know you won't slam it, but I'm not saying to).

Hey Khalid,

Thanks for your reply. You think the BC's would be good for me?

It's all good man. I understand. You looked pretty tired and ready to get out of there. I didn't want to ask ya since you had the look of "I'm outta here" on your face
