Default Help on lowering the Sti

Hello guys,

I just bought a 04 Sti. I got a questions and hopefully anyone can give me some opinions.

I want to lower the car a bit more with aftermarket springs (1.2~1.5" front, 1.0" rear). What brand of springs will live in harmony with stock Sti shocks? I dun want a spring with not enough spring rate or any problems which might cause demage to the stock shocks. So far I kinda towards to Tein, any feedback or opinion please let me know!

Also, did anyone replace the front stock brake rotor and change to cross-drilled Brembo unit?

Thank you for your time


-Bryan

I am personally waiting on PRODRIVE to release STI specific springs...

USDM STI is heavier in the front than JDM STI so I would go for USDM STI specific springs rather than one made for both 04+WRX and STI or even JDM...

Just my 2 cents..

Haha funny dude... Nice pics~ How old were you back then???

I know PRODRIVE is sometimes slow on releasing product but I do trust their R&D effort...

You do know the affect of adding improper springs... Oh~ yes, I forgot you are "Scooby Specialist"...

BTW, PRODRIVE is coming out with STI specific springs shortly...

Read this thread..

Dude? Internet? Chill?

relax - no PRODRIVE employees or fat kids with bitch tits were harmed in my sarcastic, amusing, albeit utterly useless post. I appreciate you pointing out my title as I am equally impressed by the length of your time you've been registered here at NABISCO.

And unfortunately, neither of those young men in the picture are me, though I wish I had a set of knockers like that fat kid so I could just feel myself up all day rather than try and find a girlfriend, but alas, I'm just a skinny white guy

PS. Yes I do know the general effects of improper matching of spring rates to a given set of struts. Afterall, I am a specialist

carry on
