Default 2002 wrx coilovers

I have been looking for coilovers. I have a 2002 wrx sedan and I was told to talk to Turn in concepts which I did. They told me to go with these

http://turninconcepts.com/product_in...roducts_id=523

I really like them but they are really expensive. I want some performance but I also want to go low...not tucking wheel but minimal gap. I know TIC has some of the best stuff but is it even worth my money if im not autocrossing and racing for real, I just use it for casual day to day use. I was looking at these because they seem pretty good and more in my price range. I am looking at these.

The guy I am talking to said these wont last very long and are too harsh. what do you think of all this guys?

We sell quite a few sets of the ST branded KW Variant 1s and they are probably a much better option as compared to those Teins.

Coilovers are not for the casual driver IMO. And it doesn't sound like you need or should have them.

However Feal Suspension Coilovers, ST coilovers or KW V1 coilovers are about as low as you want to start for a coilover in terms of price and comfort.

Or just get a set of springs and quality struts or inserts.

why do you feel coilovers are not for the casual driver? I am actually curious. I wouldnt mind getting a spring and strut combo but I am looking for a little more low than any of the ones I have seen can give.

The coilovers work best at the track. Lowered cars with coilovers are rough.

hmm, well ride comfort is not a big worry for me honestly, I know in a few years I am going to change my mind but hopefully by then I will have a different car. Which do you guys like more the feat suspension or the ST? and what makes the kw v1's that much more money?

To mirror WI's comment, I love my ST's, I didn't get them through WI but I'm running them with Group N top hats and they ride great for a daily CO.

Reasonably comfortable, handle great.
My friend went through two different sets of teins that were super bouncy and finally got the V1's, and I bought the ST's after liking the ride on the V1's.
