Anyone have 18x8 +48's on their Impreza? Considering the matte black Rota Gravel's.. Currently running 17x7.5 +48's. The 17's have 225/45's.. Figuring on running 225/40's on the 18's if I do that..

yeh im in the same boat, my fronts are sitting on the steering rack with no room to spare, im either going to take out the locks (cant for the life of me remember the name of them) both of them and just let the spring sit there...or cut the bottom of the shaft off to allow me to screw the shock down more

same for the rears, just going to take out the locks to let the spring sit ther which should bring it that 20-30mm more lower

Edit:

been told it should be alright by doing that, cause cmon we arent doing any high speed jumping any time soon so it will be fine

and another thing that annoys me.... coilover companys know we buy them to lower our cars so why not make them smaller in length? like fuk how hard is it


and if you dont want to do that, then unfortunately only thing to do is air bags....you cant get any lower, all coilovers will be the same i think

yea man its terrible in the rear i took the preload out just to get another 1/2 inch...

i might take out the front lock ring tomorrow and take some of the preload out of the front to get that extra 1/4 of height or what ever it is lol

I want air so bad it would make tucking tires a hell of a lot easier but the 3k price tag hurts the wallet to much haha

There are plenty of WRX owners looking to upgrade but it still took about four months of searching to find a new set at the right price.
