Default KYB AGX with Eibach prokit springs

It's finally time to replace struts... right rear strut is making clunking noise whenever going over a bump. It's awesome that stock struts lasted well over 30k miles with lowered springs.

What's your opinion about using Eibach prokit springs on AGX? Any opinion?

Same setup here, much better than stock and loved it at the track on #4.

It's even better with the group-n mounts

I have that setup as well. I run the AGX's on #2 all the way around. The car handles great and I give up long before it does in the canyons. Zero complaints here... Here are pics of the drop of you are interested in how low it is: http://www.fsengage.com/Camel/WRX.html

To the guys with the AGX's already, I had the KYB's on my previous car, 99 civic si, and i had four adjustments on the front struts, on the top of the shaft, and eight adjustments with a knob at the bottom of the housings on the rears.

How are they adjustable for the wrx, and if it is top adjustments front and rear, how difficult is it to adjust the rears. It seems that it would be very difficult without removing the back of the rear seat every time I want to adjust them.

Adjustments for the impreza are in the same location . IE fronts on top and rears on the side of the strut body under the car .
i have run this setup for close to two years on my RS . Great compromise . i can stiffen it up for autox and soften it up for my wife to drive the car .

no the WRX specific struts have adjustments on the top in both the front and back for the 02+ the old gc had side adjustment on the rears but that has since changed (this can be confirmed w/ part #'s)

The adjustments are obviously simple to the fronts but to do the rears depending on how you want to do it it will take anywhere between 1 and 20 min. You can always pull yoru rear seat out every time or just not hook in the outsides of yoru seat (I did this at the recomendation of someone) then you just reach behind while looking through your window and it takes less than a minute.

Hmmm, I might just do that. Left the outside shoulder loose one time and it did'nt look that bad.

I think you will really like em . If you haven't yet get a 20 or 20-24 mm rear sway bar . It really helps to balance out our chassis .

Just installed mine today... I set it to setting#1... it feels a little stiff. Will change to #2 next week to see if it makes difference!
