An OEM replacement spring for 2004-2007 Subaru WRX STi and the next in the Racecomp Engineering growing line of performance springs.
Designed for use with standard STi inverted struts or Ohlins Fixed Perch Replacement Struts, these springs are intended for both the daily driven street driver as well as the autocross and track day weekend warrior. Using similar spring rates as the extremely popular and successful RCE Yellow Springs, but having a much more subtle/mild drop in comparison, these are perfect for STi owners not looking for a ride height much lower then stock, and yet are still looking for increased spring rates. Spring rates are still 10% stiffer then JDM Pinks with an emphasis on the rear rate, so you will still be outpacing just about everything on the track and auto-x course.
When installing these springs, some addtional NVH may be experienced do to increased spring rate.
WRX owners will need a conversion to use these springs. Please call for details.

The proper match to the stock valving are the JDM Pinks. However, they leave some people desiring for more performance, which is where the Swifts and RCE springs come in. The RCE springs are designed with a higher rear rate to help balance the cars handling out at the limit. The front rate is also higher than the Swifts or Pinks to help with dive and turn in response.
