Whats your clearance looking like?

When you do an alignment (2 weeks later I presume), can you post your alignment #'s? Im interested to know what that looks like with these springs.
Thank you WES! I say two finger gap tire to fender. For you guys who doesn't want that tucked look this is the way to go! Oh I'll wait til springs settle then alignment. So far it does not pull to either side when driving.

how is the ride with these springs compared to the stock ride. How much did it drop the car by the way it looks about 1"?

I think you may have sold me on getting springs as a temporary fix for the wheel gap and I'll decide later down the road if I should get coilovers once there are more options and as well as positive feedback from others. Because you have achieved the perfect drop right there, quick question... are you planning to upgrade any other parts of the suspensions such as the struts or anything? Also, have you noticed any difference how the car drives/rides?

Looks sweet!! Every day I dont have is gonna be a long time. I like the drop, looks good but not slammed to make it hard to drive.
I like ur wheels, wish my wife liked the gold/bronze wheels. I think they would look good on my dark gray metallic car.
I also have RA mud flaps to install at the same time.

Bronze is the way to go on dgm. I agree 150% . ride is good. Definitely feel the difference from stock , more responsive feel and sportier, but not harsh at all. Who ever is interested should call RSR and I'm sure he will order a few so every one can save on the shipping. They wanted pictures and feedback so I'll call Ben tomorrow. For now I'm just having beer and enjoying my self . LOL

Yes it is. Regular mechanic tools and a spring compressor.

Whenever I've done springs it's taken me about 2/2.5hrs or so. I imagine doing the Impreza's springs would be no different. You could do it much faster with someone helping or if you do suspension work often.

That's about right. Its actually slight easier than lowering Honda. Only problem I came across is the top plate on the front that holds the spring, you should mark it so you can align it with the bottom when u put it back together.

These photos inspired me to give RS*R a call today and inquire about the springs as well as the coilovers. I'm actually waiting for them to contact me in regards to the coilovers. Hopefully I'll order them this week and have them on the following. Once again, the drop looks great especially with those wheels and the SWP. Very cool man.

Thanks to you and everyone else here that gave complements, that right there to me is what pays for all the time and effort we put in our cars!
