    Yeah I called bs at first too. But the collars were fully adjusted at low and wouldn’t move without some wiggle room. I went in and they showed me.


    Performance shops where I am charge $140 an hour so a few hours for all that and alignment adds up pretty quick. Hence the $650. I know in other areas the same work might be less.

    Unbolting the shocks probably would have given enough room to pull them out

    Yeah they progressively kept checking to see if there was enough space. When I did the install myself a few years ago my subframe was a bit stubborn about dropping so I took their word for needing to unbolt most of it

    None what so ever. I love they way the feel. Solid setup for sure. I’m one full turn from soft on front and rear. The car handles like it’s on rails in the mountains. I need to get on the track and see she does in autocorss or road race.

    Unfortunately, no. I thought Vorshlag was working on something with them, but I might be thinking of something else. I hope they come soon though, I'm going to be looking at a suspension upgrade fairly soon

    I was going to go with BC’s on my 2016 since I have them on my WRX and was happy with the setup. Decided to spend a few more hundred and get the Steeda coilovers (and a lot of other parts on their last sale). Very happy with the decision.
