Suspension upgrade questions

I have a ton of track time in Subaru sti race cars. I have done a few track days in my stage 1 335, and need better handling on a budget, and need to keep the car streetable. I currently have stock sport suspension.


Thinking about eibach springs, paired with the stock sport struts, and eibach sways.

Another other option would be kw 1 coil overs and no sway bars.


Last option is just keeping stock springs/struts and getting m3 control arms and m3 sway bars.



Please help with your suggestions.

I'll say the Eibach Pro System Plus, especially on a budget.

I'd go with the m3 control arms, sway bar, and subframe bushings. Do it right the first time and you won't be getting a new set of struts/springs next year when you wear the OEM one's out.

Contact Harold at hpautowerks (vendor on this board) and tell him your budget and what you want to achieve. He will give you the best advice.
