Coilover are alot different feeling then strut/spring. Its alot stiffer in cornering and bumps feel alot different. Not to mention its a different noise when you go over a bump. Different to the point where you freak out cuz you think something is wrong, but nothing is. I like them!

Any rubbing issues from being so low and running 18's? must be nice with the BE platform -- larger wells. Is that the lowest it'll go?

No EDFC. Not sure if I want to get it.

No rubbing issues.

Yes it can go MUCH lower.

HFS Devil,

I've been searching high and low to upgrade my current suspension. i was going to go with whiteline springs and possibly stock shocks until I saw your suspension install post. Here's my question. I thought Tien only made coilovers for 05+ Suby Legacy's? If they don't, where did you find yours? and if they do, how did you mod them to fit your 02'? Right now I'm thinking about getting into auto crosses but I drive a 01' Legacy and I'm having a really hard time tightning up my suspension. I have the usual strut tower, swaybar and endlinks. If you could tell me how you installed coilovers I would really appreciate it. Thanx

Thanx! So I take it then that my model legacy would be a BH or BE?

I actually got the suspesion from a different member here, Fibuz. I don't know where he got it from...

Its a JDM suspension only sold overseas.

Japanparts.com is a great place also http://www.fizzautosports.com/ if you are willing to fork out the $

Also there are some local place that carry suspension around the same price...
