They retail for less than it costs reputable companies to MAKE some coilovers. Draw your own conclusions.

They are crap.
Move forward. Good coil overs will cost you thousands.
That being said, I happen to know a few members on here that run BCBRs and love them.
They are very cheap, but seem to be reputable.
If you're looking for a decent cheap CO. I recommend those.
Otherwise, go big or go home.

BC BRs are barely better than Racelands. If he actually needs coilovers (I'm assuming he doesn't race competitively), then he should spend the money and actually get something with R&D behind it.

I don't race I was just curious about them cause they are cheap

Buddy of mine has ROKKOR's basically the same thing,ride decent nothing for track use though. Still wouldn't recommend these just due to the fact he made it 2 months before having to send them in to get rebuilt which cost him almost as much as it did to buy a brand new set.

If you are looking for quality inexpensive coilovers, We have had good experiences with Both D2 and Megan.

For a little bit more you could also go with Buddy Club or Tein, which are both very nice.

Check out the options on our website here: [url=http://www.proimporttuners.com/parts/subaru/impreza-coilovers.html]Subaru Impreza Coilovers[/url]

If you actually want to improve your car's handling and are looking at coilovers that cost LESS than $2000, you are insane. If you want to lower your car as much as possible as cheaply as possible, everything mentioned in this thread will work fine... just factor in replacing them (and your spine) after 25k miles at the most.

brfatal 01-08-2014 01:18 PM

You can get complete, bolt-on ready entry level coilovers for $1,400 that aren't junk for GD Imprezas. The newer models however, different story. Suspension Technique coilovers + new top hats or camber plates (whichever you prefer). Most other options actually worth the money they sell for are quickly approaching $2k.

Suspension is not somewhere I would try to save money, A good friend of mine rolled his car with cheap suspension and I wouldn't wish that on anyone. Good suspension is the difference between a safe ride and a death trap. While most performance parts companies charge for the "sticker" they also sink millions of dollars into good solid research and development. in the case of race lands suspension they look cheap, the finishing and weld lines are pretty sloppy. for the 600 i would grab some whitelines anti-swaybars and bushings to match.just my .02 cents but I wouldn't bet my life to save a grand.

my old man once said "There are 2 things on your car that you can never discount, brakes and suspension."

The only thing I'd add to that is tires !Thumbs Up

Ok I read that a good spring strut combo I'd better than cheap coil overs what is a good combo

call up Rallysportdirect (dot com). The 03 WRX you actually have some options. KYB makes some decent struts that aren't available for later years. You can also spend a bit more and get the dspec struts. Spring wise if you go with dspecs, look at the RCE blacks or yellows depending on what you're looking for performance vs ride quality wise. If you go with a cheaper strut, I'd actually recommend tracking down some used 04 STi springs...

PROImportTuners may have some competitive options as well. 02-03 WRX's have more strut options than other years.
