Which Springs Lower an 05 STI the Most? I Want It To Look Even (Keeping in mind that i will have 1 12" JL W7 or 1 13" JL W7 in the trunk)

I dont think you want to go for the most drop if you will be using the stock struts. Anything below 1" to 1.5" will definitely affect handling in a negative way. Pinks, Prodrive and RCE's are probably the most preferred right now with the stock struts. I run the Crucial Racing springs. They are the exact same spring rate as the Pinks w/ a little more drop in the front, for less money and a lifetime warranty. A single sub will not affect the drop as the springs will be stiffer. Use the search for more information on each brand.

I'd say RCE has the "most" drop with the best rates.

Call up GTWORX or Racecomp and pre-order the springs.

PS. Dont Get Tein!

I have seen two sets of teins destroy shocks on STi's, so I'll NEVER recomend them to any one. Swifts have the most drop (30mm) and still provide a good rate to work with. The strut travel, while different, will not blow out the struts. I have had them for 10K miles or more, and i would recomend them to anyone. As soon as i take them off (getting RCE springs) they will be for sale here.

RaceComp whore!

(Of course I say this as I am wearing my nice, new RaceComp shirt that Myles gave me yesterday. ;))

Yea, I just posted this since I had to tell somebody I was wearing my sweet new RaceComp shirt.

Um, back on topic, Teins are bad mmmkay? Pinks/Prodrives/Swifts/RCEs like everyone else says. I like my Tarmac springs, but they might be a little bit too stiff for the stock strut.
