Haha not too sure I'll go with that rim color...

The suspension looks sick. Throw up some pics in the daylight if you have some time.

I would have loved to have seen your Fozzy!
It was just hard to swing going to Houston to lower my car. (to the wife)

Next is my HID projector retrofit.
After that will probably be an accessport and go stage I
Maybe Stage II if I find a downpipe for the right price.
I may get new wheels once the tires on these go bald. Who knows they are pretty new since the Foz is new lol

^^^ love the ride height you have going on. Not too low like the wrx suspension.

So how is the ride qulity with the coilovers? Its there much of a difference of the coilvers at full ride height compared to the stock ride height? I don't want to loss to much ground clearance since thats what I bought the foz for but after doing the vf52 swap I do need to make some adjustments in the suspension dept. The sti rstb made a nice difference.

The ride is great! Feels better than stock to me, I feel much safer now not being so tall.
Even just lowering it an inch or two will give you a better look and feel but not sacrifice ground clearance.
I would recommend them to anyone looking to lower their Foz.

I need an STI rsb they are not as common as I thought they were lol

I love the ride height as well but can it go lower? Not that you should just wondering how low they will let you go.
