Confused - what springs suit best

Postby zack » Thu Mar 09, 2017 9:50 pm

Looking to lower approx 20-30mm without compromising oem ride quality (can handle firm but not jittery/bouncy firm). Will be upgrading rear sway bar as well.

Not looking at coilovers, the savings can be used for tune, towbar. Also car only has 24k's so suspension is newish

After reading forums I have short listed below

Tein H-Tech $450 delivered
Tein S-Tech $?? (harsher ride than others?)
Eibach approx $450 plus delivery
RS-R super down $413 delivered
H&R $??
STI pinks $400 plus delivery (only 15mm drop, but would suit factory bilsteins?)
Others?

Whats the consensus for my needs to maintain ride comfort?
Are the prices above reasonable?
How much should I expect to pay for install? Any suggestions in Melbourne? Am I better to find a place for supply and install?

Cheers!

Fark I got a quote from Donnellans $1,150. That was for King springs and Whiteline rear sway with alignment. They sell Tein, H&R hence why I asked them for a quote.

I've asked for labour cost if I supply my own, but I make that over $600 including alignment. Seems excessive to me.

I thought labour would be $200 springs, $100 for sway bar and $80 odd for alignment, so around $380?

I can get H&R/Tein H-Tech landed for $320 from UK. Shipping from Japan is extremely expensive. Sway bar is about $230. So parts all in $550

As I'm new to modding and Subarus, who should I hit up for installing? Im in Western Suburbs of Melb but travel to City for work.

EDIT.... Found H&R springs for $265 delivered from Germany!
