Struts: KYB AGX Adgustable
Springs: Whiteline GroundControl
Tire Size: 205/50/16
Notes: Front springs required GC impreza top spring hats. cost like $15 and went right into place with no modification, Struts where kinda anemic for the springs and need to be ran at full damp, which ruins the usefullness of adjustable dampners.

Same setup with 215 40 17 gforce sport on 17x7 Prodrive p1s

It handles well (with the help of WRX front and Whiteline rear swaybars) but the springs are a bit much for the dampers. I might pick up a set of AGX for them.
