Default 2005 Wagon Suspension

It looks like Cambie street has taken it's toll on the Tein Struts. Two blown so now I need to replace. I currently have the full adjustable, pillow ball Super Street and honestly didn't use it. I'm looking to get something with a nice lowered look with solid ride. Does anyone currently like their set up or have any directions to push me in?

Thanks in advance

I have RCE Wagon springs and Koni struts in mine. The ride is a little on the stiff side but but I'm happy with it as a daily driver. Fairly mild drop and an even gap front to back. Talk to Jason at Dale's Alginment, he will have some ideas for you.

Konis are awesome. Prodrives are softer than the RCEs.

I run lowering camber plates up front cause it allows you to run sedan springs.

I run stock struts and RCE springs and the rear spacers , I find these springs a hair too stiff .

Is it hard to install those Koni inserts?

If you have all the tools it takes about 2~3 hours to drill/cut and install the konis into your stock struts.

I used to run koni insert + RCE yellow and I have to say it is my favorite setup by far for DD.
