Holy crap, almost 3" drop?! I would think you'd be rubbing over ANY sized bump.

looks good.

drive it real hard so it'll settle out nice and then take MORE pics!

and if the springs are the sportlines (pretty sure they are) you've got a progressive spring rate... and that'll help with the ride....

i know someone who put eibach race springs on an Impreza.... now THATS a rough ride.....

you'll come to love the sportlines.
