Just placed an order for a pair of Koni yellows for the rear of the car. Hopefully they pair well with the ST struts and Eibach springs.

Thanks!

And thanks to you too, dyn0. I love this color.

Anyways, I had a big install day today - MS3 RMM went in, as well as the ST front dampers, ST strut mounts, and new strut bearings. Oh what a feeling it is to have silent suspension for a change. Here's my complete writeup: 2012 Titanium Front Strut Low Speed Noise (Clunk/Rattle)

The RMM is a nice change, too. Still a hair soft for my liking, but much, much better than the factory piece. No more of that "engine falling on it's face" feeling on shifts.

Now that I've basically gotten my suspension issues sorted out, an exhaust might be on the horizon. Magnaflow is my current pick, since I have no plans for F/I in the future.

I'm glad to hear that the front swapped over. If I don't decide to end up on coilovers then this is probably the route I'm going to go as well. Out of curiosity, have you ridden in any Ti's with the handling package? I am curious as to what the comparison would be if I stay at this height and just swap the front.
Maybe I just plan a trip up north on a three-day...

Yep, the dampers were a direct drop in with no complications whatsoever. Even the endlink and brake line brackets were exactly the same. My stock dampers showed no signs of leaking, though - so I'm not so convinced that they were to blame.

Since you're down in NC, coilovers should be just fine for you. Go with KWs if you can, the stainless bodies won't rust like everything else will, just in case you do encounter some salt on the roads. I'm averse to doing a coil setup on this car because I've run coilovers before, and they don't do well with northeast winters. Adjusting seized coilovers is no fun.

For comparison's sake, I haven't ridden in any Ti Foci with the 18" handling package. I'll see if I can work on that, but I'd imagine this rides firmer than yours does.

The other option you have, is to wait for Koni Sport dampers, which I was told by Koni themselves to see by the end of the year.
