Default Bilstein with stock springs 2011 wrx

Is it ok to use my stock springs with the bilstein shocks. The yellow is just a little to stiff for everyday driving.

RCE sells black springs they are softer for a more comfortable ride if you wanted a little more performance without much sacrifice in comfort.

I already have the yellow on my car, just wanted to see if anyone tried and liked the ride with stock springs.

gotcha. i did think about blacks for a while. not too much tire presure makes a big difference in ride.i lowered my winter tires to 30 psi. its not a harsh now.

I have mines at 32 all around, I'll try lowering them a bit to see if it makes any difference.
