Help Me Find Lowering Springs!


Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I am looking to lower my 2007 Subaru Impreza hatchback.

I need help finding lowering springs that will fit my car as I am new to the moding scene.

 

I don't know if springs have model no. or anything like that but if anyone could guide me in the right direction to find lowering springs it would be ideal.

 

Thanks

Just note - if you want to be fully legal, lowering springs are ok, but if going super low, will need a cert (extra $500ish). Coilovers out of the box need a cert.

 

From memory, with lowering springs, if its a % lower than stock, it needs a cert.

Edit - see answers below. I've been out of the mechanic game for a while

Was imported with them and never been an issue at WOF time so should be legal.

they aren't super low green one and fully captive. Don't hit the guards when turning etc.

car is miles off 100mm limit but low enough to look good.

 

not sure of the sti fits the non sti models though someone on here likely knows.

Good to know. Was always told by the certifier in my town you had to. Guess he's wrong lol.

So by reading that, if I was to put some MCA coilovers in my car, and set them up so they're at stock ride height and all that, they won't need a cert?

Na. Anything height adjustable needs a cert regardless of height.

 

From the document:

 

Not required for:

after-market shock absorbers, including air-adjustable units but not including those with height adjustable platforms, fit unmodified OE mountings, or
 after-market springs or shock absorbers, including those that raise or lower the vehicle, are direct replacements, and:

He was probably refering to old starlets on chopped and non captive springs..
