Looks good chap, should go even lower once the springs settle, have you have alignment done?

What are those pads you have on top of your back bumper? looks to be 3 on each side??? forgive my ignorance if they are common but I dont believe I have seen those before. Seems like most of us (in the USA)have a solid strip. Was it a DIY project? did you purchase those?

Im happy

When I fit the 225/50/17 they fill the arches a bit more

Those black ones are standard impreza, could do with 3 mm spoacers but no rubbing issues

Perfect drop! What are the rates on the springs? I want to be at same height on linear springs with around 200lbs/inc in rates (3-4kg/mm).

EDIT: nevermind, found the rates: control springs are 190/170, and the flatout spring rates are 225/190.

Looks sweet as a nut, Nich. I fancy these on mine as well , but in a gunmetal/ dark grey colour. Nice work. I love the JDM SF5.

I had a set in gunmetal grey and sold them on

pay no more than £120 and you get tyres as well

Need spacers just to pull them out 3mm any further and new longer studs really

Looks very good Nich,

Like mine, I needed 3mm spacers on the stock struts, but I got more clearance with the KYB's/Controls, the backs are way clear now and the fronts only touch slightly on full lock on the liner.
