I got these yesterday and will install them tomorrow. I'll post pictures and a review when I can. "The STI JDM Pink springs for 08 WRX hatch are the first we've seen with rates and a drop that we think is good. Really good. Not super big drop, just 15mm. Solid bump in spring rate to 188 lbs/in front and 171 lbs/in rear."

I am supposedly the first one in the US to have these so I don't feel too bad spending 399 shipped.

What are the WRX OEM rates? Just a tad stiffer will be perfect with a decent swar bar setup for the DD's.
Can't wait to see the pics!

Racecomp Engineering. They posted on a forum that they had these (thanks google...). Really helpful and nice I would recommend them. http://www.racecompengineering.com/ I believe that they only had this set to sell. I would assume that they would be getting more of these soon.

Yeah, I ordered racecomp engineering lowering camber plates for my old GC8 (direct from them), awesome product! Good guys there.

You could also try http://www.rallispec.com/ i ordered my jdm v6 tarmac springs from them...they came direct from japan I think...at least the newspapers that they were packed with would indicate so :p

I grossly underestimated the time I would have to install mods :p . I'm looking for someone decent in my area to install them for me w/ my Perrin PSRS. I would guess a week or so before I get them finally installed... sorry for the delay. *Attempts to light fire under own ass*

Don't stop drumming yet...

DF = Driver's side front
PF = Passenger's side front
etc...
Measured from the top of the wheel well to the center of the wheel.

The drop is noticeable while sitting in the car. The increased spring rate is also immediately noticeable. The car feels much tighter. I will update after I've driven more, I've only driven a couple of miles from the shop to my apt.

I'm waiting for racecomp engineering to verify this, but I'm about 90% certain these are different springs.

nice so looks like about a 5/8 drop, did this help with the roll?
It seemed to. I'll post again tomorrow after I drive to work. I don't want to push it real hard since my front sways are rattling like crazy, need to get that taken care of before I really test these.
