Default Whiteline roll center kit?

I have an 04 STI and i notice the other day that my ball joints are leaking grease. I notice that Whiteline makes the ball joint replacement. How well do these work with just stock suspension? Will the car sit higher?

I'm going to get the hotchkis competition sways and probably the tien s-spring soon.

Thanks,
Sid

They work fine, and do not raise the car.

You do NOT want those springs. Read the stickies at the top of the suspension area.

Thanks for the heads up.

Leh from GSC Motorsports told me to get the tien-s and the sways. I've seen leh drive and his outcome at Onelap made me think they are the ones to get but i'll pass if that is the case. I'll get the sways for sure.

I saw on IWSTI someone posted a chart that showed there was a height change when installing these.

Thanks,
Sid

The Whiteline roll center adjustment kit is beneficial for all ride heights? I read through the long thread a while I ago and from what I remember it most beneficial for people how have lowered significantly.

It will still help. remember, no matter the height the suspension compresses.

We could start to go back round and round about ride height vs camber change, but I can tell you from experience that they help, even on a stock height car.

Leh is pretty hard on suspension so what works for him probably wont work for my weak driving skills.

THose hotchkis look nice considering you get endlinks with them.

i bet he'd be faster with a good set of springs instead of the worst springs made for the impreza

read up on jdm pinks, rce black/yellows, and swift r specs.

There is a list of threads you should read. And you should definitely hang out for a while before buying stuff.

Are you sure he wasn't recommending Tein SS or something? Not that that would be a lot better...

I wouldn't run them on a stock car height. Planning on installing them once I lower my car though.

Chart shown on IWSTI shows that it raises the roll,not ride center height-precisely what it is advertised to do.
