I want to improve the handling around corners on the street, who doesnt. But there is going to be a lot of times that I have to take my rex on really bad roads, like one step up from off-road.



What kind of overall suspension set-up should I be looking at? Or should it stay stock? I dont think I want to just put on a bigger sway bar, I want it to be a balanced set-up. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Coil overs allow you to both raise and lower your suspension. They are expensive and a pain to adjust, but if you're willing to take the time to change between settings, you can get the best of both worlds. You can also keep the height close to stock and you will not have to change settings but still get vastly improved handling. Or maybe just go with the STi suspension.

Thanks for replying Mike. I will take a closer look at coil overs. As for the STI suspension, I cant wait for Sport Compact Car to test it out on their project WRX.

I have a lot of time to think about what I want to do, but I want it all to happen the very next day, making myself nuts.

TELL ME ABOUT IT!!! Modding WRX's must be like smokin crack. Once you start you just can't stop. And once you finish with the latest mod, you can't wait for the next one. Maybe we should start a support group called WRX MAN (Modaholics ANonymous) <IMG SRC="images/smilies/icon_wink.gif"> .

coil overs.

Well I did some research on coil overs. It seems like a great way to go, but I need a lot more experience and knowledge before I can use them in the right way. I want to make sure that I have the right adjustment for the different terrain I will be on. If anyone has any tips on the best settings for different circumstances it would help a lot. :wink:
