Default aftermarket springs w/ stock struts: yes or no?

I don't want any added understeer or push.
I have f/r swaybars, group n bushings, alum. control arms, and 18" wheels/tires.
It handles well, but I want to reduce the body roll.
If I can't afford shocks should I just get springs, or should I leave it the way it is?
I'd like the car to be visually lower, but its not that important.

Thanks...I actually have v8 takeoffs, but the guy who sold it to me wants it back...not sure what I'm gonna do quite yet

well i don't know if you haev wrx or an rs but my rs is 5 years old and the struts were toast. i think i had something to do with that tho, go with struts and springs, then you save on labor if you have it installed.

. Always drive
the race line .


take your front sway bar off. install the V8 takeoffs. if the springs aren't significantly stiffer or shorter than stock then your struts should be fine given they are not more than a couple years old. however, i would recommend getting new struts. there was a deal for AGXs for $370 recently. search for that.
