suspension choices

hi everybody not being on forum for a while being very busy.
since ive put my new wheels on the scooby i would like to lower the car by say 30mm or 1"1/2 you know not much but enough.
iwas going just get some tein or apex springs but ive being offerd some standard sti shocks and springs the red or pinky coloured ones. would these lower my car compared to the standrd wrx springs on mine and improve handling. thanks

will get some more photos on soon with the new spoiler and wheels on.

I have a Sti v6 Ra with the red suspension love the handling outa of it and ya it would be better handling over the wrx but as for the sti shocks and springs wouldnt think it would drop the car by much or even at all but the ride is firm but you can live with it and like I said the handling is good..................

Re: suspension choices

The drop with STi pinks are hardly noticeable (about 10mm) you should get much less body roll and less understeer.

Eibach lowering springs will lower the front 1.3" and the rear 1"
