Thumbs up Progress springs and sway bars(F&R)

Last weekend, I installed Progress springs, and Progress front and rear sway bars. The difference is not something you can really put in words, it is best experienced. Anyone local (Hampton Va.) give me a call for a ride. For those of you farther away, I'll try to explain; my suspension mods prior to this install consisted of ALK, MRT end links and front and rear strut tower bars. The Progress products looked very sweet when they arrived, and the fit and finish was awesome. The ride when the install was complete was a real eye opener for me, it was like driving a whole different car. The ride is a little stiffer than stock and the handling, god the handling, I can accelerate as hard as I want and the front end doesn't lift, nor does it dive on hard braking, I can accelerate out of a corner with out lifting a tire or losing traction, and I can corner hard enough to slide off the edge of my seat! Looks like the next investment will be better seats. (Anyone got suggestions for good, light and somewhat comfortable seats?). Oh yeah for those of you concerned with looks, the drop that the springs give really evens the front and rear out(1.8F&1.5R) and closes the gaps perfectly. Just remember to cut the stock front and rear bump stops in half, or you'll have problems.( that goes for any brand of lowering spring)

Progress makes excellent products. We try and keep their sway bars and springs in stock at all times. They've got a great facility in Anaheim, CA, where they do all their R&D and manufacturing.

I have to give a bump to aerosim-research ltd. simply for being a good vendor. However, I didn't get the parts through them. I opted to go through Mastrowrx.com because I have done so much ordering from them and they are for fast and reliable, although Bill did forget to put something in my order!

Bump for Progress!

Just installed their rear anti-sway bar on my 03 wrx sedan to replace the stock 20mm bar. The only other mods i have are a rear strut tower brace, a tanabe sustec undercar brace, and some helix rear endlinks.

Everything fits up great (though the new mounts may be a bit difficult to put on [poor position, not because of a poor product]). The rear end definitely feels flatter on turning and everything just feels better through the turns.

$175 from South Coast Subaru (thanks to Ferdie!).

Hey I have progress swaybars and coilovers and they have worked well so far. Just went autocrossing, car handled really well. I didnt believe Ferdie at first when he said progress is a good company. Thanks Ferdie, and South coast subaru.

I've had Progress F&R sway bars on my '02 WRX for almost 2 years now - no problems whatsoever, just great performance. Excellent products at a great price.
