I honestly think they're pretty much all good. With our Impreza, thankfully only the BEST companies make springs for us. H&R, Eibach, Tein, Kg/mm, Cusco, STi, etc...none of that poser crap like Intrax

Get whatever you want, they all work good. I personally have the H&Rs...works wonders for me.

personally i think a full suspension will work way better than lowering springs only....
Kg/mm + KYB is a good combo....so does Tein + KYB....
haven't try others yet....
Tein coilovers is the best as i know so far....haven't got a ride in the Tanabe coilovers though....

Cool

I've ridden in a Impreza RS w/ a set of GAB Revolution Stroke 2's they are sweet! not too hard, but when dialed in right on the track, they are easily faster than the TIEN Coil-over. This is for road course only... if your talking about Rally, the Prodrive/LEDA and DMS win hands down

I personally run H&R's w/ KYB GR2's in my '98 Legacy L and Tien w/ KYB AGX's in my '99 Legacy GT... both are awesome!

Well, if you want to, at the meet there'll be a lot of different suspension setups there, so you can ask the drivers to give you a try of them. I know for sure that there'll be H&R with stock shocks, H&R with AGX, Teins, Kg/mm, GAB, Tanabe coilovers, maybe even DMS there.
