thanks adrian!!

skywalker

in my research so far for the wagon, tein just released a wagon coilover that uses 280 lbs f and 225 lbs rear springs. It looks like the wrx takes better to softer springs. I just picked up a set of used GAB's and am thinking of having a custom set wound for the rear. swap the rears to the front, and be done with it.

i will keep everyone posted. still need to get them here and see what they are like with the heavy springs. they wll more likely piss off my hormonal prego wife, but i am really taxing the KYB's at the moment.

Thumbs up

josh,

We (Chris and I) just installed Eibach (RS springs) on the WRX and everything seems to be an awesome setup except for the back. The back compresses to much and so we are worried about that and will be taking them off. But we are looking for something else that could fit in there besides stock springs.

Let us know how the setup works. I am sure christoph1371 will want to know as will I.

Oh, yeah the softer springs do seem to work well with the WRX.

Thanks,
Bill

P.S. Take a look at these pictures and see what you think.
