Racecomp Engineering "Regular Guy" Functional Lowering Springs for GR
Chassis 2008+ Subaru Impreza STI
Finally, a performance spring designed with function over form is available for the latest Subaru Impreza STI. Incorporating the knowledge gained from designing a growing list of suspension and brake performance parts for the true track day and autocross enthusiast, Racecomp Engineering is proud to announce the latest addition to their line up. The Regular Guy Functional Lowering Springs for the 2008+ Subaru Impreza
STI are designed as the ultimate performance spring upgrade for the newly redesigned GR chassis.
Paying special attention to the completely new rear suspension design of the GR chassis, the Functional Lowering Springs provide a mild 5mm drop front and rear to maximize the extremely limited suspension travel available. Shorter bumpstops are included front and rear to take things one step further, resulting in more bump travel than stock. Rarely does an aftermarket spring set-up add suspension travel, but in this case it is a crucial design aspect that improves performance while helping to maintain a civil ride on the street.
Spring rates of 320 lbs/in front and rear are intended to work with the completely new rear suspension of the GR chassis, which has a lower motion ratio in the rear than previous Imprezas. In addition, the OEM dampers have been carefully examined on a shock dyno to match the new spring rates to the dampers.
Racecomp Engineering’s goal was to help cure the crippling understeer that adds to lap times at the track and autocross course. Studying the design of the new GR suspension, a new performance spring has been produced that adds to available bump travel, matches the excellent OEM dampers, and works in conjunction with the new rear motion ratio. The result is a car that handles extremely well from corner entry to corner exit.
Continuing the “Regular Guy” theme from previous Racecomp designs, the springs are colored black for a low key look. Coupled with the minimal drop, most people would be hard pressed to find anything different from stock….until the road curves.

Street Performance Coil Overs
Lowers 1.0 - 2.5 inches on average
Fine tune lowering to what you want
H&R Street Performance Coil Overs are the suspension solution for discerning drivers—from daily drivers to serious tuners—can appreciate the awesome handling and superb ride comfort. H&R is the originator of the true coil over system for the street. Each custom valved shock is tuned with a precision-engineered progressive rate spring to create a finely tuned suspension system. The fully threaded shock body allows for adjustable vehicle lowering—to where you want. This feature helps balance vehicle weight, resulting in a lower center of gravity and improved performance and control.

I installed a set in an '09 STI and the rideheight looked awesome and it was very comfortable, works well with the stock dampers.
DBA’s Kangaroo Paw(4000 and 5000 range) delivers significantly improved braking performance under all conditions to make you safer than ever before.
The innovative Kangaroo Paw design runs cooler, is stronger, and outperforms traditional straight vane disc brake rotors.
So what makes it work so well? To answer this, let’s look at a car’s braking system. This system is critical in terms of vehicle safety and performance. Being able to stop reliably, time after time, under heavy braking conditions can mean life or death.
Every time the brakes are used massive pressure is built up through the braking system. The force your foot applies at the brake pedal is multiplied many times at the disc rotors, creating friction and extreme heat.
The extreme heat can cause disc rotors to warp, distort and in some cases fail. Traditionally, heat is removed as air flows through the rotor passing between straight ‘cooling vanes’. However, the straight vane design does not provide the ideal conditions for heat to be dissipated and tends to allow an unwanted ballooning effect.
Kangaroo Paw disc rotors will quickly remove the heat, cool the discs, and return to optimal operating temperatures ready for the next braking application – without this ballooning.
The Kangaroo Paw features 144 precisely positioned diamond and tear-drop pillars. The pillars create greater strength, reliability, and a more efficient cooling system. Greater surface area means more rapid heat dissipation.
Cool air flows in from the centre of the disc, while hot air is forced to the outside of the disc - regardless of rotational direction. The pillars provide greater strength across the disc rotor and reduce the tendency for disc distortion.
More efficient cooling improves brake pad and disc rotor life, and helps reduce brake fade.
That’s why the Kangaroo Paw system is so effective.
