Question Springs? Need Help fast!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a 94 impreza 4dr coupe and want a good lowered look that would give me good response on the track. I have 17" wheels and 215?/40/17 tires

Would Tanabes gf210s fit on my stock struts for now untill i have $$ for agx's

Anyother ideas for spring with a stiff firm ride for around 200-250 i was woundering about the Tanabes because there are for 180 right now shipped

Dampers/struts control spring energy. For optimum performance, it's imporant to have dampers and springs of matched abilities. Stiffer springs have more energy than stock struts were designed to control, and lowering springs work the stock struts at a different height than is optimum. When new, stock struts can just barely handle springs such as the Tanabes you're considering. Your struts have how many miles on them already?

Save your pennies and do the job right. Upgrade springs and dampers at the same time.
