Second, coils are pricey.... why not just struts/springs? This is my car on just KYB Legacy struts and H&R Legacy springs.
Mostly gravel roads in North Dakota. So ground clearance is better all around for me considering the 3 ft+ of snow we get. Rally suspension setups need long travel, usually softer springs rates, and higher dampening. I drive 70% off pavement.

I actually have the GR-2's on all corners now. Good struts for the money. And work decent off road absorbing the bumps.

The problems rally guys have with our BH/BE's is that most rally coilovers on the market are for WRX/STI's which have a different rear setup than us. So we can't just put them on and call it a day. WRX/STI's have a "McPherson" *spelling* setup in all four corners, we have "McPherson" in the front, and a "multipoint" rear setup. Subaru did that to us so we'd have more cargo space because it takes up less space.
