    One inch is what I need. Maybe I'll just get the Subtle spacers. The Outback struts required modifying my top hats and King Springs are just too expensive since the spring rates are practically the same as a stock 09-10 WRX.

    Any updates? Are the springs that you purchased the same that Rockrammer installed or is there more lift to yours? I can't wait to see more pics.

    Also curious how the springs worked out. Did you get the additional height Kings or the stock height/increased rate version? I'm really tempted by the stock height version and plan to install them with the Koni adjustable inserts in the front and shocks in the rear. Are you using the stock strut inserts and shocks?

    stock shocks and they are a slight increase in rate and height. I am waiting to see if I get another compressor for xmas or money to get it. Sorry for the delay. but i have waited months already for these to get installed I am in no hurry.

    You definitly need the spring compressors! I did mine and it was pretty easy all in all. Not sure if you saw my thread but I took pics along the way of my install so you can get some hints of what you are getting yourself in to!

    So does it seem to ride stiffer with the spacers, or just higher? I figured it may tighten things up a little. You can use compressors for free from Advanced Autoparts if you do a $50 deposit.

    So, 1.5 years later: you ever get this finished? Did you need a different trailing arm? If so, what did you use to get the wheels closer to their stock position, front to back?
