I do not have them but I have heard many people that love them for the price and for daily driving + mild autox ect.
I also happen to know someone that installs stuff like that for a fair price:-).

I liked my BC's when I had them. Basically any coilover < $2k is going to be about the same if you get similar spring rates.

I'd recommend Fortune Autos over anything else for the ~$1k coilover category. They're made it Taiwain like just about all the others, but they're hq'd just outside Richmond. They offer custom spring rates, rebuild in house, and have their own shock dyno. I don't think any other cheap coilover company comes close to what they can do.

If you do end up going with the BC's, see if you can still get custom spring rates. Off the shelf rates generally aren't that great. You want more rear spring since Subaru's suck at rotating in general. I think most guys that like good streetability go with 8kg front/9kg rear.

I have no idea what either of those are...I'm assuming a DOS emulator and subsequent DOS game?

Getting some new springs and putting on new tires soon.

Who do you recommend; any names to drop to insure a somewhat decent job of alignment and proper adjustment is done.

Bob's put on my last set of tires and did a good job; don't know how well they work with springs.

Hate the thought of someone else wrenching on the car so I want someone I can trust.


Any other recommendations would be much appreciated.
