Are these the same inserts that are in the wrx inserts for gravel?

Let's put it this way will they stand up to rallyx beatings. Stock height is great for rallyx and if I could get stiffer springs and lower it for autox I am down for the cause.

No they are not. Re-read feal's post about them above.

No, these are shorter stroke. For gravel, I would stick with our inserts specifically valved for gravel/increased droop.

We have sent a few kits out to Impreza owners, so look for some reviews.

There are a number of Nissan S chassis competition drift cars using our 441 coilovers as well as a rwd converted GD Impreza.

I will work on getting you some results and reviews.

About 4.75" front, and 5" rear. With 7K front and 5K rear springs and 2-3mm preset preload, a GD chassis has about 1.5" of droop front and rear. Droop is about 30% of total travel.

My driving impressions are that the coilovers do not run out of travel, nor do they feel like they top out.

Subscribed for impressions and reviews.

I'm looking for a $1k coilover system and I had my mind pretty set on BC Racing but saw these. I guess I'll wait to see the verdict!

Default feal 441 coilovers

I just installed a set of the Feal 441 coilovers on my 2007 STI and i am super pumped with them. The fit and install was easy and the bouncing stock ride is gone. I am running the clickers at 7 from softest (it has 30 clicks) cuz it is a dd for my pregnant wife and she see likes the ride way better too.... i am looking forward to autocross this summer and putting them to the test. I have the ride height at 13.5 rear and 13.75 front and it handles the potholes and crappy roads of south dakota good

Mxkrueger how much experience with suspension do you have?

Went to look up some old posts and realized there wasn't any haha. I'm considering these coils that's for sure.

We should have more ready by the first week of March, but hopefully sooner.

There should be plenty of reviews shortly after that.

I do not forsee a group buy for these. We are keeping it simple. We are shipping out a bunch of kits next week to customers.

Sorry it took me awhile to get back. It has been a few weeks of use now and they have made no noises from the top hats at all. And the ride is night and day betterfor dd and there is snow up here so no auto x yet. I am running 1.5 negative camber and it has no understeer anymore. I talked to Odi and told him what i was using it for and he told me the base valving was a good setup for me as well as springs. And I dont know a ton but that is why i called Odi for advice. But i used to race pro mx so i know what I feel in the seat and every problem I had with the car these fixed for me.

Are they wagon specific?
I have a forester and would use 1 inch lift kit
Car is driven mostly in NYC so roads are brutal.
Would this set up run nice.
I had bc coils and they were disguting and dangerous the car felt like it was going to fly off the road.

Feal Suspension, can you setup a set of coilovers for rally (mostly tarmac, occasional dirt and gravel), spring rate wise and valving wise? Could you PM me an estimate on price also? I'm planning on getting a set beginning of next month.
