Suspension question
Ok guys this may not be the right way to go about it but I really don't have the money to throw down on struts and springs right now. I would like to get some stiffer springs (I understand this will not do me any justice with the ride being comfortable) I have read that getting springs that lower the car without struts is a bad idea. So can anyone recommend a brand to look? links would be really helpful. I have tried looking but I didn't see anything, suspension, and tires are both things that make me feel like I have no idea what I'm looking at when shopping haha.
Thanks for the help

These work with factory struts, good picks.

Sounds like what you want are RCE blacks. Not sure if the GR versions require upgraded struts though, the GD versions require STi or ideally better struts.

All GD options that don't apply to him.

Second RCE Blacks.

Epic and swift are both options still justin. Not sure about the blues now tho.

I'm in a similar boat General-Leo, and I decided to go with some RCE blacks, the 'regular guys springs', since I understand it's okay to use them with the stock struts, and they don't drop the car very much.

I just ordered them, so can't tell you how they are, and looks like it'll be a few weeks before I get them and have the time to put them on, but from what I heard, they're pretty good for a year round daily driver, which is what I was looking for.

I chatted with the folks at [URL=""]Turninconcepts[/URL] about what I was looking to do and they were really helpful, and pointed me towards the RCE blacks too.

May be that I'll eventually need or want better dampers to go with them, but since they're supposed to be okay with the stock ones, figuring I'll be able to wait for a little while at least before doing so, time & money and all that -

Thank you again guys, trying to figure out what will and won't work with what I have gets a little frustrating sometimes.
