To replicate the P1 setup (by spring rates at least)go with the Tein M spring or H&R spring.

After getting my struts I did extensive research on which springs would best match, and I think that the HR or the Tein Medium springs are the best fit. Should be very solid without being harsh. Of course suspension is very subjective at least when talking about ride quality.

The setup from SUBARUPARTS.com is great for me. The V5 struts with whatever springs they are seem to match perfectly. They ride well and reduce body-roll considerably. I think they are V5 springs... If I'm wrong don't flame me, constructive criticism will be more appreciated. Whatever they are, I have them, and I think they are excellent.

Ditto, Subie Gal

H&R's are great with the Ver 5 struts.

I got mine from SPO Motorsports. They have sales from time to time. See what they will do for you.

General consenus on the Eibach springs is that they are a little on the light side for the v5 struts. kyb-agx should be fine for them though, seeing as they are ajustable. FWIW the Eibach being light for the v5 struts is somewhat subjective.

I don't want to suffer anymore drop. I do some offroading, and I need a little highth. With the eibachs and stock struts, its just right....Just need a little more stiffness (and reliability)

dan i have those fhi and eibachs. the ride is a tad overdampened. a few, who have riden say it's not bad at all. but, i have considered getting something that would compliment the fhi's better.

Yes. I thought I already posted that. Well actally I posted v5 springs aka WRX springs with AGX's are great. So they would also work well with the v5 struts.
