    I just emailed Cody at raceland hopefully he will get back to me. I'm kind of stoked to hear from him so I can plan for some tax refund splurge. I would love to get my piece of shit lower, and for a decent price too boot. I will post any replies, maybe if enough of us show interest in this he will be more motivated. I know half of the community would cream over sub $500 coilovers. Hell you can't do drop springs and struts for much less. Besides personally I would be completely ok using stock strut mounts with them, without a fancy camber plate destroying my scrub radius.

    You're correct on the dairy reference. I'm all in for a group buy if it needs to happen.

    Possibly, however if we can get some 250-300lb springs on them they will ride OK.
    This isn't a set of $3k coilovers. We all understand that.
    But if ride quality is near stock or firmer it's a trade off. I for one want a slammed car. I'd prefer it not to rattle my teeth but if it does so be it. I payed $350 for my shit box and am not about to spend a thousand bucks on coilovers to get my car as low as I want. I don't track my trashcan, I don't have to contend with pothole riddled roads, and I don't mind a stiff ride.

    I had a similar sentiment when I bought my coilovers. I very quickly grew tired of my Agilitys. That said, somebody offer me $400 and they are gone.

    Not sure, that is what I was trying to enlist Mr Cody Graham for. I still have not heard back from him in weeks. I wonder if he is still with the company. From what I can tell the height of the coilovers should work.

    i have been emailing Davin (DClarke@Racelandus.com). He replys really fast. But the GD knuckle is a almost perfect fit the rear is 26mm and the front is 26.25mm so right on.

    The front measures at 26.25mm and the rear at 26mm. This is the inside of the knuckle. It si the same size as the stock saturn ones. This is for the WRX GD so i think these are a closer fit.

    Well just ordered the coilovers and what that also means is that a build thread will be starting soon. Also i will be starting on the custom sturt mount.

    Honestly I was figuring on the front stunts cutting out the strut tower, getting a piece of 1/4 steel, drilling the center and 3 mounting bolts to fit the subbie tophat and welding it in the turd under the stock strut tower. If that makes sense. The rear should just be a matter of drilling the strut tower out, no cutting involved.
    I highly recommend running softer springs than are in the Subaru kit. They are going to be hella stiff, and exasperate the poor ride the race lands are likely to give.

    Couldn't you just redrill the front towers? It would have to be done right though to maintain proper caster angles.

    Yes and no. The wrx coilover from them has a camber plate. The center hole on the Saturn strut tower is going to be too small. I was thinking removing too much material because you can't re-bend the strength ribs back in it I would have to plate it.
