Picked up the Sti suspension from can_foz on the way home and installed it all last weekend and here are the results!

It's a bit lower than i wanted but it has stiffened the car up a heap and has completely changed the driving experience!

Also one of the rear number plate lights blew so I put some LED's in there

Image

Also installed a new Sony double din head unit and reversing camera because i need all the help I can get when it comes to reversing

Currently in the process of making a top mount splitter to direct as much air onto the core as possible

Group N engine mounts have been ordered and will be here next week

Looks great! I put MY08 STi struts/springs into my SH and the difference is night and day! Have you had an alignment yet or planning to put some other goodies underneath to make the most of the STi kit?

Looks like the perfect height to me. I loved the pink springs on my old Foz

Going to throw some swaybars in and some new whiteline bushings up front before the next alignment, did a bit of a self alignment myself which will do for the next couple of weeks, car is lucky to get driven more than a 100km a month now haha

Thanks mate, cheers for the hook up!

If anyone wants a set of GC8 Sti springs they are more than welcome to grab them :thumbs:

That looks a lot like Tas plates, are you still in Tas?

Would like to compare what Sti suspension is like...

I was lucky enough to grab a set of 04 sti struts on the weekend, so I just wanted to check your ride height, is that pic fitted with the blk springs or the pinks? I have a set with blacks and internal sls?
Many thanks
Steve
Plus I was told gda 01/02 I think, wagon struts are a direct fit and sit better, could any one confirm the year for me?
