Tein and Subaru typically don't mix well, and there are threads and sticky's that discuss this.

What do you want with your car? Performance or lowered look... Pick one.

That has been the conventional wisdom for a very long time, but MotoIQ had a glowing review of them on a 2015 WRX. http://www.motoiq.com/MagazineArticl...Coilovers.aspx

I'm actually interested in hearing any other feedback from WRX/STi owners.

I cannot speak for the newer models beyond 08+, but the OP was specifying 02-07 GD model years, where Tein is consistently slammed.

OP, what are you looking for in a suspension, the lowered look or performance? There are great performance options out there in the struts/springs and coilovers departments.

The Tein Flex Z coils have been running great thus far. LOL. Ride quality pretty good, no weird noises, no issues. Driven about 15k miles on them so far.
