All parts are technically used but with very low mileage (less then 20 miles). Parts were removed from brand new Japanese specification STi Spec C models that were being converted to rally cars. Some parts may have minor marks and scuffs incurred during removal and handling. Parts sold as is without warranty and are not returnable.

It should fit an 04 STi. We sold one already to an 04 STi customer and never received a complaint.

Pricing is some of the best around.

kevin--

would/does the jdm spec seat (for yhe usdm driver's side) sit at the same height as the usddm does fully lowered??

im thinking i might bite on a set & sell off mine, and wondered if the driver's side chair would sit at an okay height (the lowest setting of the usdm is good for me)

any info?

ese

ps- any front - seat only deals?? (want some 3 mo. old 2k5's??)

Get em man!! Those seats look so much more supportive.

Kevin, how much of an improvement in handling would the suspension stuff give? Also, would it make everyday driving a pain?

For an improvement in ride and handling, we recommend the pink springs from Japan along with the group n strut top hats. This is the one modificationi that if performed delivers both an improvement in driveability and performance. Usually, an increase in performance results in a slight decrease in driveability.

With the installation of the jdm sti pink springs and group n strut top hats, you can expect to eliminate the stock suspension's tendency to annoyingly bounce up and down at speeds below 80 mph. I believe that the springs and strut top hats are poorly matched for some the streets of the US. I am not an expert on the subject, but among those who have followed this course of upgrading this setup is what many of us believe should have come factory.

Throw in the aftermarket STi pillowball rear suspension and group n driveline package along with some sway bars and your car will truly react and handle like we want it to.
