^ this. then decide on suspension (adjustability/ride height important to you?) and go for wheels/tires after. I've also seen SWP hatches with the stock WRX wheels painted matte black which looks really good IMO if you're looking for a simple change.

Suspension is a pain in the ass. One of the reasons I sold my Bugeye. After using cheap coils, adjusted wrong, wrong size tires. All a mess. Plus I was a noob when I starting modding and working on cars (we all were)

I'm trying to get a STi hatch, and i thought about what I would do suspension wise. I thought about maybe springs and swaybars. But.. Eh

I spent a lot if effort perfecting this look

It has -1.5 camber all around as well thanks to Proflex camber bushings in the rear uppers and I also had to roll the rear fenders.

Since you have a WRX I would say spring /strut combo. Our Stock shocks suck even for daily driving. Other option is just replace shocks and then use the rest of the money to buy a nice used exhaust. Best bang for your buck Imo.

Suspension/wheels are extremely easy if you stick to known conservative setups.

Exhaust. Every time you start the car up, it will be a reminder that you have something special.

Thanks a lot, I have determined your car has the perfect stance! haha I really like those Raijins too. You are making me second guess my wheel choice and coilover choice!

V-limited from vendor Advan-Emotion

I did some modding to it to make it fit better. It was about $70 shipped

Good suggestion, I was considering throwing some plastidip on but taking plastidip off is super annoying. Might do it anyway

Or just mod your car how you want it, not how the interwebs says.

^especially on a Wrx. You should just save your money, and get injectors, pump, intake, dp, and a pro-tune. Leave the stock catback for a while and squeeze some power out of her. This may be a little more expensive, but the car will feel night and day different

If we're deviating from his list, i'd think the first thing he should get is an Anarchy Motive knob, right?

Exhaust is just too much of a layup to not get that done before suspension.
