Question Is it hard to lower a impreza

I have lowered many cars like a (2000 civic si, 1997 talon, 1995 neon, 1999 ranger. But is it hard to lower a impreza???? Or is it the same. My car is a 2001 I have never look at the suspension on it very close. But will the stock strut work out for a little bit or they suck. PLease let me know. Thanks

Impreza aren't realli hard to lower, some markets make lowering spring that will lower ur Impreza for you about 2 inches. If you want a coil over kit then you will have to find yourself one such as the expensive LEDA coil overs or you can go with the TEIN coil overs........not reali that hard to lower the Impreza since it's been out for about 11 yrs now.......
check out www.autocaresubaru.com for some lowering springs!!

as coil over kits may go you can get the LEDA approx. $1650-$2000 at SPT Tuning, JC Sports(TEIN)approx$1700.00

someone will keep you informed withing the next 5 minutes

Like Fuji K said, its pretty easy. The only thing I hated was the strut bolts in the rear. Pssh..that took the longest.

. Paradise is
like Disney with hookers


no kidding... what's with that? i took my interior apart for the first time last night and discovered those... does NOT look like fun... but I dont have to worry about that until this summer so i'm not going to think about it
but back on topic, yeah there are a number of companies that make lowering springs and coilover kits, so a mild drop is pretty easy. If you want to floor the thing i have not seen anything that will drop you more than 2-3 inches...
