Default Tein H Tech

Ordered up some H.Techs from www.jscspeed.com for $169 shipped.

Install went good. It took me about four hours to do w/ the occasional Gatorade break. It was my first subaru I lowered and really worked on.

Have only put about 40 miles with them on, so they'll be a bit lower as time comes.

Rides real comfy and a notice in less body roll. I didnt want to have this car really low or extremely stiff, so I think these worked out great.

Thanks for looking.

I have them on my wagon and after 25k miles, they ride just as well as the day I installed them. I love them!

I just bought some of these for my car and should be arriving next week. Did it help close the giant wheel gap in the front? Oh, yeah. Any tips on installing them? This will be my first spring job. Peace!

Glad to hear the install went well! I got the exact same springs for my 2004 WRX. I'm putting them on next week. I hope I'm as happy with them as you are with yours! (I'm sure I will be if that wheel gap goes away).

Tein H-Tech sedan springs on my 05 wagon:




Nice subtle drop and they ride just as soft as stock.

Are you guys running these on stock struts? If you upgraded, which brand did you go with. I'm looking for suggestions...

Had mine on for almost a year now with few issues. Only bad thing about them is you will learn to hate speed bumps (though I imagine that's true of pretty much any springs).

Only issue I had with mine was my friend overtightened the nut on top of my front passenger side strut and stripped the hell out of it. Spent a good 6 hours going around town looking for a die and tap.

I actually like it with just the springs up front. Are you still running it like this? For some reason I can't really tell from the other pics. AND is it alright to do that for an extended period of time, or is it not good for wrx's to have teh raked look?
Nice ride btw
