Default AST coilover group buy/sale!!!!!

This is going to be a rare one, but I think you'll like it as I've been getting a number of emails and phone calls about coilovers lately.

This sale is now closed.


Here's the deal:
  • AST-USA is way over stocked on Subaru GD (02-07) dampers
  • AST-USA has more on the way
  • AST-USA has asked us to help
  • I have told AST-USA I can try, but they have to work with me on it
  • AST-USA is working with me on it
  • We've come up with a way to do it
  • It's going to be in the form of a group buy
  • The list for the group buy will be maintained in the group buy thread on IWSTI

Here's the rules. Read them carefully so you fully understand how this one works:
  • This is NOT a tiered group buy like we usually do
  • This is a BATCH group buy - what this means is when we get 5 people on the list I will get parts on the way to us then to you
  • With each batch of five we start a fresh list.
  • Because this is a batch group buy no parts are going anywhere until we get 5 on the list. So if you want them quickly YOU have to spread the word to get more on the list
  • Payment terms is payment is up front. Want them faster? Then YOU have to spread the word to fill your batch.
  • This is open to US shipping addresses only
  • The time limit on this is until AST-USA tells us to stop.
  • There are two sizing options. They are 5x100 (02-07 WRX, 04 STi) and 5x114 (05-07 STi). You MUST tell us which one you need
  • There are two build options. Off the shelf or take them to the TiC SST spec. TiC SST spec will add $300 to the price. Details on each of these options below.

AST 4100 off the shelf details:
  • 4 dampers (2 front and 2 rear) with off the shelf AST 4100 Subaru valving
  • 4 bump stops
  • NO dust boots
  • 2 AST standard front spring perches
  • 4 main springs (2 front at 8K and 2 rear at 6K). These will be Swift springs.
  • 2 helper springs for the rear. These will be Swift springs
  • 1 AST tool kit
  • 2 rear adjustment extenders

TiC SST details:
  • This option will add $300 to the price (yes, we're even saving you money here as this is usually $400)
  • 4 dampers (2 front and 2 rear) revalved to TiC SST spec BY TiC and work done AT TiC in our new clean room made specifically for building dampers and motors
  • 4 bump stops
  • 4 dust boots
  • 2 TiC low profile front spring perches
  • 4 main springs (2 front at 7k and 2 rear at 5k). These will be Swift springs.
  • 4 helper springs (one for each corner). These will be Swift springs.
  • 1 AST tool kit
  • 2 rear adjusment extenders
  • Choosing this option will cause a short delay while we tear down your dampers and rebuild them with our valving.

Does this apply to an 08+ STi ?

I do not believe it does as I don't think AST-USA has 08 STi dampers overstocked.

BUT since you asked I can find out....

Very interested but had two questions.

1. How does the standard AST compare to the KW V3? <O</O
2. How does the TIC compare to the RCE T2’s?<O</O

There are plenty of write ups on these two questions. Just look it up. Sorry, but it would take a bit to go over it all. Have in mind what your overall purpose for coilovers will be (DD, auto-x, road course, just to show off, etc). Also keep in mind the cost, availability and ease of acquiring maintenance, if ever needed.

Oh I had my TIC AST's on my DDriven STI for over a year now and love them. Thank goodness I got them used ($$) or I'd be pissed at this deal. It also helps to get awesome customer service from TIC. Do I hear "free t-shirt time"!? haha

All the dampers that you have named are all quite nice. Nothing wrong with any of them, and it's been discussed many times before.

Quite honestly, you would be likely happy with any of them. Quite honestly, I'd be quite happy if you went with ones through us though.

Because we have distribution agreements with our foreign distributors that we will not compete against them. In other words - we don't bite the hand that feeds us.

Based on where you are you can talk to Chris at Touge Tuning to see if he'll let you slide on this, BUT you have to cover inter'l shipping costs and import duties.

count me in for the SST for a 2002 wrx 5x100. Placing my order today!

Also, just to clarify, will I have to wait for 5 total people who either want the SST or off the shelf AST to buy in or for 5 people who want the SST builds?
