Default who make adj shock for the wrx?

I have a set of whiteline springs and would like to replace my shocks with adjustible ones. I would really like the AGX's but they dont make them yet. What other brands are out there for the car. I had tokico on my integra and wasnt to happy with them. I hope someone has some answers. I really want to put these springs on.
thanks

Um, because they're pink? Perhaps they'll come standard on the "Hello Kitty" edition WRX.

Default Check out the Leda A's

Redline8k,

Leda offers an adjustable (24 settings) strut for stock sized springs. I belive you can get them from RallyPerformance

There was someone selling a set a while back: Leda A For Sale Thread

Another thread from Ken at RallyPerformance: Leda A available thread

I have not used this setup myself although I am considering the full Leda B coilover option. Hope this helps.

Camber w/ GC agx's and Eibach springs came in w/ about -3.0 degrees, stock is -1.3. This is from supermarkus. Most camber bolts offer 1-1.5 degrees of adjustment.

Koni evidently has their rear inserts fixed (shortened if I remember correctly) and will be available in April (someone else's post), their front inserts fit fine now.

Yup, the Koni inserts are great. For $600 all around you can't beat them. They will be correct for the rear in april. Im actually wondering if I should bother or just stay with my current setup (old rear Konis)?

trthoppe,

Can you access the dampening adj on the Konis easily? Are they on the top of the strut? What settings are you running autox and street?

thanks

The front on the Konis is a piece of cake. With the rears, I have the back seatback only bolted in by the center 2 bolts, not the outer 2 bolts. That waY I can unhook it and bend it back to access the rear adjustments.

1 turn on the fronts and full stiff on the back for me.

So the adjustment is on the top of the strut for both front and rear? Access to the front top hat through the engine compartment, and for the rear:
Sedan-remove back seat
Wagon-pop off strut top cover???

Just wanted to make sure I understood you.

Exactly, except for the sedan you can use the little trick with the back seat.
