Current debate is going with GC lowering springs to actually go lower, or GD lowering springs to stay stock height but get the improved spring rate.
Just don't use S-Tech springs!

From everything I've read regarding S-Techs, the issue is that they drop car too low, and cause all sorts of issues from that.

They weren't really on my radar for springs to buy, though theoretically using GD S-Techs on a GC may negate a bit of it, lighter chassis and all.

Took about an hour to detail JUST the spoiler (just the top area.. not including the stands for the rear wing spoiler)
Clay barred, took 4 rounds of polish to take out the swirl marks, then 2 coats of wax.
Tired~~~ Looks like the other parts of the car will have to be done in stages.

Not sure where you heard it wasn't available to the public. It does look good though. http://pages.ebay.com/motors/link/?n...d=221350010242

Thanks! Yeah, I did thought about that for sure. I can't do that entire section though, just the smooth area in the middle. The outside plastic part has little bumps which will cause issues with a wrap over it. But I think I will do that middle smooth section.

Nice find! That's what I was told and it isn't listed on their official website yet.

They don't. I had STi S-Techs on my car and the ride height was 12.25". Looked damn good, but the ride was awful!

Wash, clay bar and wax. That should help keep some of the dirty bits from sticking.

struts don't dictate ride height. Can you take a measurement? Center of the wheel hub to fender lip, I'm curious.

Swapped my Perrin crank pulley for a Grimmspeed one on my STi.
Installed the Perrin crank pulley onto my Forester.

Finished upgrading my clutch and flywheel (SB stage 2 six puck and ACT streetlight FW) only to find I broke a nipple on my stock BPV in the process.
So I used copious amounts of superglue to hold me off for a few days to get a new BPV.

Emergency prepped the Subie.

If you take out the foam inserts on either side of the spare. You have room for the following:
- jumper cables
- 2 fire extinguishers
- first aid kit
- hammer
- ax
- shovel
- roadside kit (flashlight, reflectors, poncho, tool kit etc.
- water
- tiny stove + mini fuel cells
- 4 cans of soup
- tow strap
- foam flat inflator
- 6 flares
- energy bars

And the top lays flat!

Tinted my tail lights and marker lights and baked my headlights and painted the insides black. It's amazing how much better the car looks.
