Correct me if I'm wrong, but these are stock RS Struts and Top Mounts with Ground Control Coilover Sleves and the stock spring perch cut off?

How long do the stock struts last with the higher spring rates?

If you read these are the KYB AGX struts you can use stock top hats and keep the lower spring perch if you really want to. I used these and loved the DD ride and how they handle in Rally X and Auto X. I used the 225/200 spring rates.

Hey, being new to rally-cross, I just bought an RS to dedicate to rally-x. Its been gutted and work is being done to it, but the tires i have now have cracks in the side wall from sitting by the last owner.

It is on stock 6 spokes right now, and I am looking for the best choice(s) for rally tires that will fit on these wheels. I did some searching, but it looks like everyone is using aftermarket wheels and tires, but the car needs more work before we can put money towards a new set of wheels at this point.


Thanks!

there are no gravel tires made in 16" size period. get a set of snow tires and run stock class if you want to stick with 16" stock wheels.

otherwise, get a set of cheap legacy 5-spokes and a set of used rally tires. I used to find sets of the 15" wheels for 100-200, and volunteer to crew for rally teams in exchange for used gravel tires.

suspension: prodrive/bilstein WR, 20mm rear sway bar, stock front, noltec camber/caster plates, replaced most all bushings
brakes: 11.4" wrx front rotors, stainless steel lines, hawk HPS pads
tires: was running continental all seasons, just got some blizzaks
engine: delta 1000 cams, uel headers
i have a primitive racing skidguard but havent really found the need for it yet just doing rallyx...

been pleased as punch with the way the prodrive WR setup handles on the dirt. also cool to see yall are running 225/200 spring rates as thats exactly what i had planned for the ground controls, or whatever i try if i move away from the original WR springs

i wasnt aware you could mount GC's without cutting the spring perch - im real interested in this, ive been wanting to run them but didnt want to cut up my struts. do they just sit up higher? should i get a lower (<9") spring? it occurs to me i dont even really know how they go on

Only thing the lower perch will do is keep the GC coil's lower perch from making the car go lower. Unless you use a shorter coil like the 8" or 9".

I'm not 100% on this since I did cut the lower perch off my KYB AGXs.

yeah after finally finding some pictures (thanks aquacow) looks like the main thing is itll be a total pain in the ass to reach in there for height adjustment, but id imagine the original spring perches are mostly out of the way of the GC perches, and looks like the GC sleeve would still settle/rest at the same point
