Default GTWORX\Bilstein\RCE\Whiteline goodies installed

With the help of Myles over at Racecomp and Dana up at Synaptic3, finally got my suspension sorted on my 2011 WRX.

Holy crap was my initial reaction. This is how the car should have been delivered! I can finally feel what the car is doing on all four corners and it is still very dd'able. I was shocked at how bad the body roll was from the factory and how little feedback there was, not to mention the ridiculous understeer. Now it feels like a completely different car (very neutral) and I cannot wait to get it up to Loudon.

Here is the list of mods and settings:
GTWORX/Bilstein Impreza Cup Sport Kit
RCE Sways (F/R)
WL Steering rack bushings
WL Anti-lift kit
WL Rear camber kit
WL rear trailing arm bushings

-2.3F, -1.5R

Again, the guys up at Synpatic3 were absolutely awesome to deal with and Myles was instrumental in getting me exactly what I was looking for in my suspension package (Daily driver that will be tracked several times a year)

I posted here because I know there were some folks interested in this setup

That's a great setup. Did synaptic have any issues adjusting the rear camber with the WL kit? I have heard tons of complaints about that, although I have it waiting to go in. Are you still on stock tires?

The guys didn't mention any problems so I assume it was ok

Unfortunately still on the stockers and will be for the foreseeable future. I am looking at throwing the 18/9.5 d-forces on with Dunlop Star Spec's eventually.

I also posted on here because there was a thread regarding 2011 wrx suspension mods that someone in the area was interested in checking out. Since I couldn't find the thread i figured to just make a new one.
