yes im back. ALL YOU JDM LOVERS I NEED OPINIONS!

i have a wrx incase your wondering.
i want to lower my car about 1.5 inch, no less.
i dont have a grand or so to lower my car properly, however i do have hook ups on ground control coilovers, and H&R springs.
alot of my friends told me to just get the H&R springs cause i dont really need the adjustable coilover springs. im not a racer, i just want my car to look good. most important thing to me is the comfort. so tell me, whats the deal!

Get springs, they'll be fine. If you want to save time and get performance you should get good struts, too.

Ditto...H&R makes good springs. Their Sport Springs should be enough to get you at the height you're looking for.

ok so forget the coilovers. just get springs.
i also forgot to mention, my friend also has tein s.tech and h.tech springs.
i dont know what the difference are in s.tech and h.tech but seems like the s.tech are a lil bit more expensive. (anybody wana explain this to me?)


im not a racer, but like i mentioned. i need the comfort and the looks + the durability.

Hey where at in SF are you located? Also struts save you time by stiffening up the chassis cause you want a comfortable ride and all right.

Bilstein also makes awesome shocks if your looking for oem replacements. Stay away from KYB's, they make some shitty shocks.

I'd save up and replace all 4 at the same time. I mean, if you're gonna replace them anyway, it won't matter if you wear down your stock ones.
