Default lower springs 11-12 wrx?

Im looking for any opinions on lowering springs for my 2012 wrx. Which springs would give my car a nice drop. Ive been searching around and was just wondering if anyone had any experience with lowering springs on their 11+ cars. Any advice would be great. Thanks!

nice drops on stock struts and shocks are not a good idea. ive been through it. dont go more than around an inch lower. i had sti pinks on my 08 wrx for a few years. it wasnt too good or sporty. last year i bought the rce bilstein cup kit suspension. its the best mod ive done soo far! awesome handling and quality of the bilstein struts.

I dont have a wrx or the drop but from what Ive read/seen, your only two real options are some epic springs or the RCE black/ "regular guys" springs. Both have about the same drop, the blacks are a little bit less but both are made to run on oem struts. Honestly like 424wrx was hinting at is save up for some nice suspension. The bilstein kit is very nice but a little out of my price range so Im going with koni's and most like some RCE yellow springs. Just do your research and save your money so you can buy what you really want

Epic gave it a 2 finger "what it should have looked like from the factory" drop (1.0/1.2).

Pair those with some Konis = WIN, which is what I did for $760. Otherwise you're gonna have to go CO and a good set will run ~$1,500
