Default 2015 WRX Swift SpecR springs

After being on coilovers for two years, I grew tired of feeling every pebble on the road. I started to look around to get a more comfortable ride, but retain the handling I gained with the coilovers over stock suspension. I am a very picky person when buying/installing parts on my car, as I only look for top quality. Doing my research for a few months I narrowed down my search to Swift SpecR lowering springs. Now nothing against other companies out there, but Swift matched my needs/wants the best. My decision was made based on their extensive research for each application, build/material quality, and reputation from owners reviews.
I was presented the opportunity to join Kamispeed and Swift springs for a partial sponsorship and joined; I was immediately sent a set of the Swift SpecR lowering springs for my 2015 WRX.
I was pleased with the fast shipping by Kamispeed, as always; but the quality of packing and springs themselves from Swift impressed me as well. Springs were individually wrapped and labeled, instruction sheet and decals included too. Construction and coating of the springs looks top notch as you would expect from Swift.


Installing the springs onto my stock WRX struts was easy. I'm not an experienced tech, but more of a novice DIY'r. I'd rate the install of springs a 6 out of 10 with the proper tools.


So as of the date of this post, I only have a couple hundred miles on the springs but my expectations and needs have been met! Alignment specs at -1 front, and -1.3 rear. Stance is great for daily driving, not too low so I wont have to be concerned about bottoming out my front lip, but low enough removing wheel gap. Drop is even all around, no saggy butt. Ride quality is that of a stock car, but without the wiggle room and body roll. Bumps are smooth, not harsh and jaw jattering. No bounce at all! Love not having to worry about spilling coffee on way to work now. Car still feels like it's on rails when I drove up into the mountains here in Colorado and had some fun on the turns- amazing/sharp response for turn in and exit driveability.



I will update after a few months, but I couldn't be happier with these springs.
Best suspension setup I have driven on in eleven years of owning WRXs.

Donít you just love it when an OP shares some really good info and then vanishes?
It seems the RCE Yellows are the most popular lowering method [springs] for the 2015+ chassis; but the few pics and reviews Iíve read regarding the Swift appeal more to what Iím looking for.

Sadly, however, the OP is nowhere to be found, so that a thorough follow up and long term review can be made.😡
