I had it installed last Friday, left side front wheel gap is about 2.5 fingers as Dan had already mentioned. The right side is 3 fingers and I might have it looked at again soon. Didn't get any stickers with the springs

I am quite happy with the ride height and ride quality.

I've been on these springs for about 2 years now and they're great!! Just got some 18x9.5 +22 wheels with 245/40/18's. Got rubbing in the rear and I know I have to roll that but I'm also getting rubbing in the front on the back corner of the wheel well and the far side of my guard when the wheel is fully turned. Anyone out there running aggressive wheels with these springs? Any suggestions?

I recently purchased the Epic Engineering Springs and Swaybar combo for my 07 WRX. Heres my review:

Springs:
Simple to install, yet install instructions would have been a nice touch. These initially dropped my car approximately 1.25 inches in the front and 1.0 inch in the rear. After settling for a week, final drop was 1.5 inches front, 1.25 inches rear. I am very happy with the drop visually.

Performance wise, I instantly noticed far less body roll in cornering and dipping under breaking. The car feels much more stable and more controllable compared to stock springs. The ride is slightly harsher than OEM springs, specifically over long bumpy roads, however still perfectly comfortable as a daily driver, which was my primary concern prior to installation.


Rear Sway Bar
Again, installation instructions would have been a nice touch here, but the install is still very simple. I installed Kart Boy rear end links at the same time as the sway bar, which is generally recommended as the stock end links are extremely flimsy. I installed the swaybar at the same time as the springs, so i did not get a direct comparison against the stock, however I immediately noticed far less understeer in cornering, the car feels almost completely neutral through corners.

All in all, I am extremely pleased with both the increase in performance and aesthetics, and wished I had installed both components three years ago when I got the car. I took the car to a track day (HDPE at Ginerman Raceway) a few weeks after the install, and could not be happier with the performance of the car. My instructor complimented it as well, stating it has tons of grip and great handling compared to other car that he has driven in.



Heres before and after pictures, as well as one of the stance on the track:

Any 08+ grb's on epics besides the white base on epics website? Mine come in on Friday at least. Anyone think 18x9 +38 will be troublesome with epics?

Robstunner,
These two threads should help you out.
If you post in those... I am sure you will get what you are looking for.

Just threw them on my STi SE! The cars a lil over a year old and that damned rear LCA bolt had to be torched and breaker'ed. Looks much better now, just waiting for my 15mm spacers to come in. Will comment on ride quality later!

Alright, so I got the Epics a couple days ago and started installing them on my 02 wagon, the front's went in without a problem, got to the rears and realized they don't fit my stock top hats. I didn't realize I needed 04+ top hats to put the rear springs on.

So I bought some used 04 STi rear top hats and they are on their way, now somebody please school me on the TIC spacers because I'm scouring the internet and Nasioc and can't find the info I need. Are they the Scooby921's? How many do I need? Where exactly do you mount them? Please HALP!

Epics on stock struts (struts have 100K miles on them with about 80/20 highway/city. The stock struts seemed slightly weaker in front but still working like new in the rear - will replace with KYB GR2s or something similar in time)

Overall install was straightforward and easy and the springs look great, I expect around 1/3" settling over time but I in no way wanted a slammed car. Looking for better handling but retaining its "daily driverness" for my 80-120 mile daily round trip commute to work.

Suspension bits already on car: Whiteline front/rear end-links, Whiteline front/rear 22mm adjustable sways, Whiteline comfort anti-lift kit, 18x8 wheels with 225/40/18 tires

My opinion is that the springs were a fantastic complement to what was already on the car. Car feels more planted in the corners, the springs work much better with the current mods, turn in and corner exits are significantly quicker. The car DOES ride more HARSH over bumps but I expected this as my previous mods such as the ALK had much more impact on the ride over bumps. Everything is firmer and tigher and the daily commute is still livable, the WRX finally feels sporty and handles very well. Its an overall good balance for a daily driven WRX and its a blast on the weekends!

The other WRX has Megan Racing springs, drop is much more pronounced to say the least. I'll shoot some more pics and post in a few weeks once the springs have completely settled.

Think I'm pretty sold after looking through this thread.
Lastly, where can I get these Springs for an 03 Bugeye Sedan?
Don't see any that will fit my year and didn't see any bugeyes with these springs on this thread.

Had my epic springs installed with 2010 wrx struts last thursday and the ride is awesome! The drop wasn't pronounced at first but it settled and I am definitely happy now.

Default blown struts with epic springs?

Has anyone with a 2008+ WRX blown their stock struts with these springs?
I want these soooo bad but I can't afford new struts on my budget.

Thanks,

Aaron

Over 45k on these springs!!



Note: Front end is just a tad lower because I'm using the RCE lowering camber plates.
