Best suspension options for a rally-x Impreza?
Posted 09 July 2005 - 01:33 PM
This is a really cool site, I just stumbled in from NASIOC.
A little backround: 1993 Impreza Sedan, AWD, 5spd. 2001 2.5 engine. Anyway....
I went to my first rally-x a few weeks ago and I had a blast! Unfortunately, my struts were weak before the race, and after....let's just say that the suspension now sucks!
So, I bought a set of KYB AGX's, what should I use for a coil spring? I've been told that stock OBS springs will work. Any year in particular?

for 2 events... until i blew a strut.
this probably happened as the springs i was running were simply too low.
this is how we learn so... that being said,
stay away from lowering springs.
try Subaru SPT springs or prodrive
dont get H&R or Prokit or Teins
nothing that LOWERS the car, or you'll be really really sorry.

And if so, what years>

they're a bit taller
so yes, that would be a good place to start
try to find some in a junk yard.
1996/7 to? 2001 should do you.
hope this helps.

I'm with Jamie though, something a little stiffer might be nice, the courses tend to be kinda bumpy in spots. Like you just found that out.

So yes, I have the AGX's on the way. I would like to do the job in the next couple of weeks. So if anyone has a set of OBS springs in good shape, shoot me a PM....please?
Of course, I am also doing things such as skidplating, tires, and whatnot.
But since my struts are basically blown, i kinda need to do that ASAP.
BTW, there were only 5 drivers that day that didn't knock down a single cone. 4 of them were in the top 10 spots. I was the 5th!:cool:
