Yes I got the Subaru performance suspension kit. I'm waiting on rear STi group N pillow mounts and Cusco Front ajustable pillow mounts from Cobb Tuning but I have the complete suspension waiting at my local shop. It came with the STi ver 6 struts and springs, front sway bar with acompaning STi bushings, aluminum lower control arms also with bushings. Nice deal considering the aluminum control arms are around $1K. Can't comment on the performance yet.

Is it just stiffer or does it do the whole lowering thing? I would like to keep the appearence of stock but get better handling.

that particular set up wont lower the car a whole lot...
1" or less... STi stuff is 'stock stuff' in japan and on uk imports...
it's not low at all.

springs like... Eibach, H&R's those will lower a bit...

Thanks Subie Gal, that is exactly what I'm after I don't need the lowered look.

If its upgrading the springs and struts, whouldnt it be prudent to get shocks as well for the WRX kit?
