From what I have seen, Cusco has the first coilovers for the US market. Can read more about it http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1368458

What is every one else's plans for coilovers? I'm interested in the electronic control of the dampeners, making them hard to soft, soft to hard just by a push of a button.

Actually there is really no point in getting the electronic damping control. Its already simple enough to open the boot and bonnet to adjust it. and honestly, how often are you going to adjust?

i think it might be a good anti-theft device...
slam the car down on the frame so the wheels cant get any traction.
and put it back to normal when driving.

it looks like it would make things easier when deciding on rim and tire sizes.

I was looking at the Cusco Coilovers too. I wouldn't mind getting them, but they are not cheap, might have to wait a while, good while on those. But I did find some good stuff on vividracing.com. They have a lot of good replacement parts for the suspension in the rear. Bring on the strength. This is the best platform Subaru has made for suspension upgrades.

I would like to know how those work out... Please let us know how that turns out.... Hopefully they work pretty good, I would like to get those as well. Did you get the electronic damping system too, so you can adjust in the cabin.

i might eventually get the electronics. still considering whether i'll do it when i first collect the coilovers. Cos i'm the kind that likes hard suspensions. so i don't see myself adjusting the coilovers anyway..

I'll update everyone!

I don't mind hard suspensions either, but I don't think that my wife would appreciate too much. She already thinks that the car is too loud with the exhaust and CAI. But, oh well right. I do like the ability to adjust the ride, I think that is great. I do a lot of driving for work and I think being able to push a button and then the car is riding soft would be nice.

I would like to be able to change the settings for my long road trips since I drive to Minnesota a couple times a year. I'm not a fan of changing it up each time if it can be done electronically. I've been trying to save up for suspension mods but it seems something happens where I have to dump that money else where...

Just to clear up a possible misconception for some...

These are height adjustable and damping adjustable, BUT

...you can control the damping (not dampening...that means 'getting wet' :p ) electronically or by twisting them by hand...

The height adjustment is ONLY done by hand...which is accomplished by twisting two locking collars together at the proper height...usually having to remove the wheel to get to them.

I think some might be thinking you can adjust the height with the electronic unit...only hydraulics or airbags will accomplish this.

Not me, just want to adjust the softness and hardness from inside, which the electronic system does from my understanding. Height, not too concerned with making adjustments there.
