I didn't do it myself but mine does have the Prodrive Suspension setup (which is in fact STi) it sits quite a bit lower than standard - I believe its a 25mm drop :shock:

Mine's done but not a clue what make was done before I brought it. I did Newie's for him a while back (Eibach) and it made a big difference both in handling and looks of the car :wink:

mine has buddy clup race spec coil over suspension fitted by the Japanese owner.

It has a real drop on it and the damping and rebound are virtually non-existant.

It corners like a go-cart - but it also knocks your fillings out!! :?

yes mine came from japan with adjustable coilover suspension, well solid basically like a rallycar, handles like a beauty sticks round corners but as gravelexpress says it is very hard drive,

Mine's sitting lower on some adjustable susp. not sure of the brand (it has a "B" on the top) and it sits quite a bit lower and a lot stiffer than std, had it done at the same time as my STI 'braces and the car handles really well - far more neutral on turn in and better mid-corner stability. Looks pretty good too

the only downsides so far are that its a bit of a hard ride over bumps and I've had to take my mud flaps off because they would scrape going round bends!

Yup! 25mm courtesy of Prodrive springs!!
Certainly makes the STI handle better but knackered the ride til 18's were fitted. Much improvement now!!
