Eibach has two sets of springs, one for WRX 08+ and the other for WRX 09+, different model #s too. Which is correct for 13 2.0i and what would the drop be?

Just for reference, the two part #s are:

7717.140
7721.140

Looking to buy a set but want to make sure I get the right one with the right fit and drop.

I picked up the prokits for 08 WRX Part# 7717.140. Either one will work, they are just a different spring rate as the 09-10 wrx had different dampers and had a different spring rate vs 08

Thanks for the clarification jspec. So it's about a 1.2 in drop right? Front and back.

Are the RSR's currently the only springs that drop the front more than the back?

Cool. That's mostly what I'm after. Not going for "mad stance", just a clean drop and eliminating the reverse rake. lol

Yes about a 1 inch drop front and back. Its noticeable but yet its subtle. The ride is nice a slight stiffer but still tolerable for daily driving but it feels 100% more planted to the ground.

If anyone would be interested,
I'll have a set of practically brand new Raceland coilovers for 08+ WRX. Put them on last weekend and realized my aging body doesn't agree with coilovers anymore. I will be pulling them off this weekend. Paid $535 a couple weeks ago. I'll let them go for $400 and will ship @ buyers expense.

Oh my. That's a deal I really want to go for but probably shouldn't.

How's the build quality of them?

Build quality actually suprised me. The new generation of the Racelands is hands and feet above the old ones. Ride quality is noticeably stiffer, thus why I am parting with them, my back just cant do low and stiff anymore. The pillowball mounts are noisy, but all pillowballs are but I have read you can oil them from the tophat and it will quiet them down. If anyone is interested, just shoot me a pm, I will be pulling them off this weekend.

I am STILL looking for donor front struts for a Koni install. Lots of people wanting to sell the wide-bodies (2011+ WRX), but they won't work. This is surprisingly frustrating...

Anyone want to sell theirs?

I didnt end up pulling them off, made some adjustments and I can live with them.
Photo for reference (still about 1.5" left in the front, rears are close to maxed):

I'll need to try the pic on the computer later. On my phone it's giving me some error.

Still overall acceptable build? Considering just getting these with my wheels next week.

Absolutely. For the price they can't be beat and get the job done.

Hm.

Unless I can score a deal on some lightly used BC's, K-Sports, etc, I may just do that.

Installed H&R springs for 08+ WRX (Part # 54462). Fit perfectly.
It was listed as a 1.4/1.3 drop for the wrx.

Didn't yield the exact look I was going for. Was hoping for an inch lower. however it remains at a functional height for the winter and daily driving.
