Best WRX Lowering Springs? Close up that wheel gap.

The Subaru WRX is a great handling and looking car from the factory, but many people want to modify their suspension, whether it's just for the aesthetics of having a lowered car, or to improve the handling further. While coilovers are one option for lowering your car, a more affordable option is lowering springs.

Lowering springs replace the stock springs of your car's suspension. The springs go on top of the struts, and when compressed, determine the ride height of the vehicle. There are many options to consider when looking to buy lowering springs for the WRX. We've compiled a list of the best.
