I appreciate the advice. I noticed almost immediately that I need some bigger sway bars. They would have helped tremendously. I had FA's on my 2011 WRX. I enjoyed them but never had the chance to track that car. What brands are you referring to? I'm open to suggestions.

Depending on Budget:

- Megan Racing D/A $$
- FA $$
- Koni D/A Struts with Race Comp Springs *non height adjustable $$$
- KW Varient 2 $$$
- KW Varient 2 from Race Comp $$$
- Ohlins Road & Track $$$$
- MCS $$$$

All these manufacturers produce a quality 2 way or more adjustable setup
Big thing is that you can put whatever spring rate you want on them.. most run a Square setup Ex: 500 frt 500 rear..

The Swaybars will help along with some quality endlinks..I recommend Kartboy.

Your model of WRX is fortunate that when you slam the camber it will automatically toe the front out for better turn in.. As I tell my Novices that have fancy stuff.. Don't be afraid to TWIST THE KNOBS AND TURN THE BUTTONS...

Things you want to add to your Track Day prep:
Bring a Jack to be able to jack the front corner of the car up to set the camber on the front camber plates.. When you get your alignment. Tell them you want a reading for normal driving..EX: 0 toe. 1.5 neg front.. then a reading for when you slam the camber. EX 1/4 toe out 3.3 Neg Camber that way you will learn the various ranges to help facilitate tire wear and general felling of the car.. its going to be a bit 'darty' with the toe out.. but you learn to enjoy that for the future because it helps your 'turnin'..

If you need more info don't hesitate to reach out. the biggest thing is to learn the limits and have fun ..Hope that helps
