I had about 30K on my first set before I traded my outback for the WRX. Got about about 10K on the new set and both seem to be doing great.

If anything the new set (ultimos) are settling in nicely.

Not to mention, even if they only last HALF the time a set of Megans or BC's last (unlikely, since I had 30K and they were still great) they are over HALF the cost of the others I think. So its a win win

Nice look sir! What wheels and tires??? I like those.

Mine have been on since Jan I think and I still love them. The ride is perfectly mixed between stuff enough for playing around and not so stiff that it makes my 500 Miles a week that I drive unbearable.

Nope, thats one reason they are cheaper than most. No middle man AKA mark up.

Anymore long term reviews?
Are the new ultimos stiffer and harsher on bumpy pavement?

I have had mine on since Feb and still love them.

Went for a drive Sunday from Novato to Santa Rosa, Bodega Bay, Pt Reyes, Stenson Beach down to Sausilito and then back to Novato with the North Bay guys and absolutely fell in LOVE with my ultimos.

Not only did they perform VERY NICE, but driving home after the hard driving was comfortable as they are just soft enough to not jar your teeth loose over bumps.

They are stiffer than stock, obviously, but in my mind a perfect blend of stiff/soft for daily use and weekend driving.

20,000 miles and counting on $500 coils? That's a sweet deal.

I've driven around 15k on my coils in my 2010 wrx sedan and they still ride like a dream. For $500 shipped its a hell of an investment. I'd recommend these coils to any and everyone

Just installed these on my hatch and they ride great compared to other coilovers that I've experienced. Although I've spun down the cylinder s in the rear and maxed them out yet I still have 1" wheel gap lol. Am I missing something here? I just need A pinch more to be sitting perfect.

having not owned a newer WRX I can say one way or the other but I know that on my set I can go from stock height up +2 inches or drop -4 which would rub like crazy. Im personally lowered about 2 inches from stock.

I have them on my 2010, and all I can really ask is if they were compared to the stock struts. I put mine side by side and dropped them around 4" below what stock height was. In doing this I got the desired drop I was looking for

The fronts I could almost lay frame if I wanted to, but I've spun the rears body all the way to the bottom and still have wheel gap lol. It leaves an inch between the top/bottom lock rings, I could spin down the spring perch but then that would eliminate my preload and the spring won't sit against the top hat at full droop. Preload was set correctly btw.
I was just asking because I've seen 08+'s tucking tire on these coils yet I can't even get rid of my wheel gap in the rear. I snatched these up because I had a bent strut, I'm pleased with the ride but I plan on building air struts out of them in the near future.

I'm only 3/4ths of the way down in the rear on my 12 sedan and I have less than an inch of gap. Not sure how much load was given on the preload with yours, but it should be able to go lower. I had mine professionally adjusted and corner balanced too. I have enough play room left that I can tuck all corners if I wanted. Did you do the preloads yourself?

Yes, I tightened the perch just enough so the spring wouldn't move up/down then tightened them down 2mm more. Did yours settle lower after driving a while? Also do you get clunks on drop offs or hard dips? May have adjusted by spring perch.

Maybe they gave me the wrong shock body or something. The bottom mounting brackets on the fronts were backwards (right/left) for the brake lines, I just swapped them over though.

Here's a pic

Still have an inch to drop the front, still have an inch on the rear shock body but I've already maxed out on the bottom brackets, you can see the rake.
Those are 18's with a 35 series tire also, so basically OEM diameter
