Hey guys..
I got a 08 STI and im looking to do some suspension work. I hav found some coilovers I like but was just curious to see if any body knows of any lowering springs that will just take away the wheel gap. that's all im looking to do.

If you're looking to modestly lower the car, then I'd target 14" frt/ 13.5" rear center of wheel to fender lip (which is approximately equal to 26" front and 25 5/8" rear ground to fender). This will keep full suspension geometry and nearly stock stoke length. This is only approx 10mm to 15mm drop and almost any coil over will allow you this minimal drop and of course a lot more if you want to. Pm me your email address and I'll forward a pic of how my car (2011 sti) looks with this setup.
