Default RCE Yellow lowering springs vs BC Racing or Tein coilovers for my 2020 STi

Hi,

I have 2020 STi with just over 4,000 miles on it with the stock rims (that Iím powder coating gold) and stock tires (for now, I really want to get Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires later on).

So what I was wanting to do now since I daily drive my car and will possibly track it once or twice a year (in the next few years) is to just lower my car and give it a more aggressive stance with budget being a factor.

With the RCE Yellows, I should get about an inch of a drop and Iíve heard that handling is a bit tighter as well. The cost for the springs + installation and alignment will be around $1,000 + tax

On the coilovers side, I was thinking about BC Racing which Iíve heard gives a more stock feel and Teins which give a stiffer feel, but after parts and installation, it should be around $2,200 + tax

I donít really need the suspension adjustability right now till I start taking my car to the track which wonít be for a while.

Does anyone have RCE Yellow lowering springs on a 2018+ STi and what are your experiences with it?

Default RCE Yellow lowering springs vs BC Racing or Tein coilovers for my 2020 STi

I decided to go with the RCE yellows lowering springs with my stock 2020 STi shocks, however I had a quick question.

The shop doing the install said they were a bad idea since they will wear out the stock shocks in less than a year, and to at least go with BC Racing coilovers, however those are at least $1000 more with installation.

So I was wondering if anyone has a 2018+ STi with the 19Ē wheels/tires setup and RCE yellows with stock shocks, and if so, how do you like them?

The RCE springs are designed to work with the damping of the OE struts/shock. You can install something tailored to your car or something basic/off the shelf in which the only pro is being able to adjust ride height.

There are plenty of reviews of these springs on the VA chassis throughout the internet and 2015+ facebook groups. The search button is your friend

STI RCE Yellow Springs: Install Tips & Review - YouTube


Yep I saw that review and it was cool, but I was only able to find one YouTube review on a 2018+ STi with RCE yellows which is why I thought to ask on here if any other 2018+ STi owners had any experience with RCE yellows.
