I'm considering these for my GC... only reservation I have is the height. My buddy has a set in his MK5 Jetta and they are way too low even on the highest setting. I don't want to rub. And his rears are super soft and mushy...

Get the ultimos then. Higher spring rate. Also, you cant compare different models like that. I put them on my 97 legacy outback and it was low, same ones on my WRX and I looked like a lifted jeep

All I know is that they didn't work well in the only case I've had 1st hand experience with. So can anyone confirm that you can get stock ride hieght and good firmness on a GC?

Have you gone to the website?

Direct quote about the Ultimos "The Subaru Impreza GC Ultimo coilovers are height-adjustable with CNC-machined locking perches, which allow you to easily adjust your ride height from 1 to 4 inches below that of the OEM suspension."

And about the regular coils "The Subaru Impreza GC coilovers are height-adjustable with CNC-machined locking perches, which allow you to easily adjust your ride height from stock to -4 inches in relation that of the OEM suspension."

Thinking about picking up a set. I don't track nor do i auto-x at all. But, i do hit a few corners if I ever happen to come across some every now and then. I'm just curious about longetivity and reliability. These coilovers are going to be installed on my '12 WRX. I really wanna bag my car, but i want something temporary that'll do the job, and also considering I am on a budget. Hence, the curiosity of how long these will last until i save up enough to buy my air ride suspension, which will be a good amount of months lol.

I'm in the exact same boat. I will be bagging mine by this time next year. Went with racelands for the in between bags setup and I've enjoyed them so far.

How bad can you hear the noises over bumps? Are there any noticeable noises at high and low speeds? I plan to bag hopefully by next year as well, depending on what mods I plan to buy. But, I have my mind set on air ride at the moment, but I may buy new wheels and tires after i lower. How stiff is the ride and how bad does it bounce?

Soobie, if it's not too much trouble, could you post a pic of your ride? Much appreciated.

I've run Racelands on my 02, 03, and 2012 wrx's. I have never had any issues with them at all. Now granted, I DO NOT track the car, or auto-x the car, I DO hit quite a few mountain roads, Deals Gap included. I have zero complaints.

After putting about 5k miles on them I developed a slight knocking noise from the right rear strut mount plate which was corrected by ever so slightly tightening the center mount nut.

I have run super low, and at this ride height...

Lol Tyler, I was hoping you'd reply on this thread. Seen you on wheeldude's website, which is the reason why I considered raceland coilovers lol. How is the ride? Really bouncy or near stock? Stiff or soft? I'm just like you, I don't track nor auto-x. But, I do hit a few corners and some mountain runs, but rarely. Love your whip. I wanna get those same SVN-R's, but in titanium chrome.

Thank you sir!

Just slightly bouncy. But that's expected with just about any coilover. But at my ride height it seems just perfect. It handles great and has just enough roll to be comfortable. Like I said, for what I use them for, they are some of the best economical coilovers I have ever used. No complaints, and around 6,000 miles on the setup.

I do wish they offered the ultimo setup for the GR chassis.

Yah I agree. Not sure if they are going to do them either from what they told me. Bummer.

Sounds great. Think I'm going to buy myself a set. Probably within the next month or so. Thanks a lot Tyler and NWSoobie for your inputs. Very helpful since we drive the same year car.

Can not wait for payday on Friday Has anybody run a stock rim on these coils? How many MM of spacer do you think I'll need to be flush with the wall?

I bet they are developing the ultimos for the newer WRX/STi's since they have become so popular for the other models.

I have ran stockers and had to space them around 10mm in the rear and like 5mm in the front! 2002 wrx is what those specs are from but that's with it basically slammed.

So I've had mine for 5 months now with about 10-15k miles on them. I'm still loving them. They ride the same as they did on day 1. Would definitely purchase them again.

That's good to hear! Glad to hear that they're holding up with no issues.

I think I am around 10K now too, and I agree. If anything they ride BETTER now that they are broken in a little.

I got my WRX aligned, and even with no camber plates in the rear, the rear camber was spot on!

Right now I have -1.5 in the front and about -0.9/-1.0 in the rear. If I didnt drive it 400-500 miles a week on the highway I would go a little more camber aggressive for cornering but damn tires are expensive
