2015 wrx manual premium COILOVER choice

Postby scarygood17 » Wed Mar 09, 2016 2:02 pm

Hi everyone:

my 2015 wrx manual is still under warranty so maybe not anything too heavy like engine mods etc.

thinking to get a set of coilovers?

choosing between MCA Blue and Purple XC or XR? or anything else people are more than welcomed to recommend?

im looking for less body rolls and an increase of handling, nothing needs to be hardcore, no tracks or racing. all im looking for is a bit more comfy ride and corner handling, less body rolls and more joy to ride. currently sitting on factory 17s wheels, will replace later to 18inch when tyres worn out.

thanks guys!

Hey mate I have the MCA XR coilover with 8kg front 7kg rear springs, chose it because it's got the MCA Red's more aggressive and better valving and a few extra features not in the MCA Blue, but yet not as expensive as the MCA Red either so it's a good value street/track coilover. If you want something for street only I would definitely just go with the MCA Blues, but even the Blues are more than capable of hitting the track with. Speak to Luke at MCA , he has a MY15 STI NR4 JDM spec that he uses for motorsport only so he will be able to suggest some spring rates for you. Probably no lower than 6kg front and 5kg rear imo because the stock springs rates are around 5kg already but there's more to it than just spring rates obviously.

Hi scarygood, if you do replace your struts, I could be interested in your removed ones if you wanted to offload them :)
