Default Need help with Tanabe springs on a WAGON

Given that the wagon has different spring rates than the sedan...and that Tanabe doesn't list a specific kit for the wagon... which spring set would be best for me?

I will be using the stock struts... so they have to atleast fit that requirement. The car is a daily driver but may also be used for the odd track day (road course, not drag)...

can anyone who may have these on a Wagon advise...or help me figure out what I need or don't need???

Thanks guys!!!

also...after install of the springs and a settling period for the new springs... will I need to get an alignment? Will it affect the ability to get a proper alignment???

You'll need an alignment after the install regardless, since you'll be pulling the struts off. I imagine you'll be able to get your alignment back to within factory specs unless it is a severe drop from stock. How much do the springs lower the car?

that's I'm not entirely sure... (hoping for someone who may have them equipped could reply) but I think it's close to 1.75" front and 1.5" rear...???

I recall reading about people needing camber kits to get back to factory spec, but is that a SEDAN only issue, or also a Wagon problem? The factory spec on the tow body style is different isn't it?

If it drops 1.5" rear, you might need camber bolts, because the rear probably won't go that low and be able to get within factory specs without them.
