Tein H-Tech

I have been searching around for some Tein H-tech's lately and I found a couple of them. Here are the links:
-----------

RallySportDirect.com - Tein 2004 + WRX STI HTech Lowering Springs

Sedan Spring Rates: Front: 229 lbs/in Rear: 196lbs/in
Sedan Spring Ride Hight: Front: -1" Rear: -0.4"
-----------

Tein H Tech Lowering Spring Set Subaru Impreza WRX 2004-2005 SKS60-BUB00

Spring Rate (lbs/inch) 4.1/229 3.5/196
Ride Height Drop (inch) Front: -1.8 Rear:-0.7
------------


What I am asking is, Which one should I buy? Both of them have different drop heights. And both of them have the same SKU number. [TEIN SKS60-BUB00]. I am guessing one of the springs are for sedans, and one of them is for a wagon? And I am looking for the one that is for the sedan.

To lower your car, what else do you need for sure? Springs, Etc? This is my daily driver and I don't track the car at all. And I don't plan too. I just want to lower it for the looks. I still don't know which one to get since there are 2 different kinds of drop height and I don't want to buy the wrong one. Can anyone help? Please and thank you!

As AWD Joe mentioned, struts wouldnt be an bad idea since you are taking the springs out and replacing them. You will also need to be getting an alignment as soon as you can after installation also.

i have the h techs but i don't have a pic up yet. I skipped the struts cause they are not required. Lowers the car nicely and thay have a sporty but not harsh ride. They have rubber on the tops and bottom so you don't hear them rub. Ofcourse you will need to get an alighnment. Mine was way out of wack. Rented spring compressor from auto zone it took about 3 hours it was my first time doing spring.

You are right that you dont have to change them, but they will definetly wear out quicker than with stock springs. So if you have the money, might as well change them out at the same time so you dont have to do the same steps over just to change out struts later.

Bah, I have to get an alignment like twice a year because of all these damn pot holes. When we installed my H-Tech's, we didn't use spring compressers, but my buddy has learned a few tricks after doing like 4 other WRX's

you don't have to compress a lowering spring to get it on, but you will need a spring compressor to get the stock one off(safely).
