S-Techs arn't the best spring in the world from what I head. Can't go wrong with Whiteline though. Shipping times hurt on the Whitelines.

What's wrong with H&R's or Eibachs?

That's why i switched to GR2's for the GD WRX.

Tein S-Techs have significantly lower ride height than stock, but still have close to the stock spring rates. so your car is going to look nice and super low, but it's not going to ride much differently, and actually might handle a lot worse! i know that there's always a bunch of people selling those springs on other forums, so that can't be good (same for the Tanabe GF210s by the way).

STechs are for show only. There is a marginal handling improvement, but you will blow a shock because the spring rates are similar to stock (bounce-bounce).

These days, it's really only H&R or Whiteline Control that will get my attention.
You can still buy Eibach sets on ebay, but the prices are jacked up.

not to thread-jack, but would installing whiteline on stock struts be ok? I'm not going to endanger my stock ones am I?

You will accelerate the wear on them, so you would be better to pair them with new struts or struts designed for lowering.

Stechs are crap. Might as well cut your springs; it's cheaper and gets the same results.

designed for lowering? What struts are those?

i am extremely happy with mt kyb g2's and h&r lowering springs (bought at boxer4racing.com) the handling is superb, and ride quality is excelent on the crappy road's out here in madison. At the same time I installed the spring's and strut's, I installed a whiteline adjustable rear sway bar , and adjustable rear control arms and could not more pleased with the results.
