I am looking at getting these springs and wanted to know if any of you are getting Rear Adjustable Control Arms to go with them or are the springs not throwing things out of spec to much? I would just rather install at the same time if new adjustable control arms are needed but I also don't want to waist money on parts that really are not needed. I only daily drive my car so no track days for me.

I think you may need to send those camber bolts back and get KCA326.

Springs are in, hard tell if there is a difference though

Also managed to accidentally rip on if the abs wires out of the rear hub and now the car feels as if it has no power steering and of course the expected abs light is on and says that hill assist and traction control are disabled

With the motor being over the front springs the front WILL settle in more over time ( week to 10 days ) 500-1000 miles. Our pictures that we post have miles on them. We also did max camber in the front ) -1.5 front camber ) which slants the front wheels inward and does effect the way the drop looks.

**** NOTE: the front fender does sit .4 TALLER than the rear fender. *******

I can say however....the body roll is almost completely gone these things make a big difference in the handling and I think it's almost a smother ride than the factory coils, good job RCE!

Not to be one of those guys, but won't these springs wear out the shocks faster? If I'm wrong, I apologize, but I feel like I read that somewhere.
Anyone want to clarify? I'm curious about these as well!

Was hoping these were dropping the car a tad lower, might just go coils again with the car...

I would put money that these Springs are going to out handle and out perform most budget coils.

Additionally every aftermarket part you install you should pay very close attention to the impact you are putting on other parts. I personally know , respect and appreciate the amount of effort that rce puts into their r&d and I know without a doubt that they aren't going to change too much like the spring rates to negatively impact the struts. These were designed for the stock struts from a very careful company. Do your research and see what you find. I have no doubts with trusting rce after the amount of positive things I've heard and read and seen from them.

The stock struts are pretty darn good. The RCE springs are very much within range of the stock valving (shock dynos and % critically damped numbers were posted). Plus they include shortened replacement bumpstops.

So I'm getting a pull...sometimes to the right and then sometimes to the left? I've had off alignment before but it's never switched sides like this? Could it be the electric power steering? Anyone else have this after lowering? Very strange to me....

We just spoke.

You have to check the alignment of the top perch with the lower clevis tabs. If that is off, it will for sure have memory steer.

Second picture down in the BILSTEIN instructions shows this best.

So question.....not a single tire shop here in my town has any alignment specs for the 2015 WRX dealer wants $189!!! Anyone have any suggestions? I know it's a completely different alignment spec from the 2014..

Is not completely different, and you don't need any particular specs.

Zero toe front and rear, and about 1.5 degrees negative camber in the front.

A monkey could align your car.

If I could add, I would do hair of toe-IN , in the rear. like 1/32nd.

Remember this rear is essentially a BRZ rear adapted for the WRX. It needs a hair of toe in , in the rear, or it will be loose( rotate like a mopho).

Thats my .02 cents worth and I have done 7 alignments on my car already and 3 different coil overs and 4 different spring versions.
