Re: what suspension are wrx hawkeye boys running?

Yeah widetrack is the word ha ha.

Definitely a difference there. The only difference I could think of in ours and the previous years is maybe a bit more weight.

If you look at kyb struts they...

Re: what suspension are wrx hawkeye boys running?

Yes mate if you could ask. Then at least someone's there to look at one in the flesh and decide. If the clinic decided it could be done...and put together a little package for the swap and parts...
