25mm equals 2.5 centimeters which equals one inch so 4 inches. now that the math is done figure out the rest, i cant answer that.

FYI you contradicted yourself even though you said I think:

WRX=Turbo
2.5RS=Not A Turbo (NA)

Check the trunk

And Man show is correct, it will be basically an inch drop.

I'm pretty sure the 100mm is not the drop- I've never seen any springs drop that much- you couldn't even roll it down the street w/ a 4" drop
