How do the Cobb springs ride?
Are they slightly stiffer than stock?

They are a bit stiffer than stock. They tend to bottom out on the oem struts. I think these are the gen 1 Cobb springs? They seem a lot lower than 1.5f and 1r drop. Would be paired perfectly with tokico d specs or koni inserts.

RPF1 17X9 +45 does not fit with stock struts and 4 pot front brakes. Rear wheel has maybe 3/8 clearance to strut. Front 4 pot hits wheel spoke. I had to put 3mm spacers all around and fits perfect with 245/40/17.+42 would be the ideal fitment for wagon imo.

I'm dropped on ISC coilovers, sorry about the delay in reply - currently in the middle east on a tour. My fenders are rolled. And you'll need a 3mm spacer in the back to clear the rear coilover. thats with the ISC brand at least
