Re: 2011 WRX & STI OEM parts (shocks, springs, mounts, intake)

how would you compare the sti springs vs. the stock springs? Stiffer? Sits lower? I'm interested in how they handled as well. Just a slight difference or pretty noticeable?

Stiffer, not lower.
Handling is much better, much more control in corners. However, at times I find it too stiff for my taste, therefore I decided to keep the oem WRX springs and add Koni adjustable shocks. This way I can make it stock soft or sick stiff :)

nice, I'll have to check the spring rates with the struts and get back to you on that one. Sounds like a great option if they match up well together. Thanks for the quick reply!

Ok so the 2011 STI springs. Will they fit an 09 hatch WRX, and is it the whole set of 4?

Those 11 STi shocks are really tempting. How easy is install?

Rears are really easy, not a lot of compression involved and the whole setup is pretty straight forward. Fronts need a little more work, since the top hats need to be aligned too and the fronts only have a few turns, so not a lot of places to put a spring compressor. But I did it myself with no lift, just 2 jacks and my own home tools in about...3.5-4hrs.

Hey I heard from someone on 3g that the front STi springs do not directly fit in? Can you confirm this?

I know for a fact the the front shocks are not interchangeable, due to different bolting in the lower end, but the springs are just fine.
At least on 2011MY they are interchangeable.

Sorry, I am out for now. GF said she "bought me a gift" for the new car and not to buy anything right now. I guess I know what she got me.
