hey guys im looking to give my 07 wrx a drop, its sitting high and i hate the huge gap. im looking to drop it from around 1-1.5 inches. not going to use this for track or anything else. just for some fun on streets and freeways. therefore, what other advices would you give for giving me the lowered car while having good handling and ride.

Dont buy teins or eibachs.unless you wanna blow your stock struts. STi pinks are good but may not be low enough,

My car has almost 70k miles on it i was thinking about replacing my stuts also. I was thinking about the Swift springs and KYB GR2. But before i start purchasing and have them installed would there be anything i would need if i have my car lowered so there wont be any future issues.

The only thing I can think of was camber plates. Id recommend tannable g series springs also. KYB are a nice strut as well.

It's ok. I like my setup feels good as a daily driver. My front end settle in so my stance is more even out. I'll post a pic later.
