Anyone have any experience with these? Rhdjapan and a few other places sell them, stock spring rates are 7kg front 4kg rear which seems really off balance.
I hear nothing but good things about the DFVs for aggressive street /light track use and I'm really tempted but not sure if this is the right approach or some hybrid top hat situation with the susmi10 version available here for 07+.

Thoughts? Good ohlins shop I should contact?

I have two sets of them... one are fixed perch struts with v7 sti gymkhana springs on them, the other set are the coilovers with 7/5k springs.

I was going to swap the coils in this year, but I liked the way the dampers performed with the upgraded sti springs enough to not bother.

FEAL can rebuild them as well if you're in the US.

I have a set of the new DFVs. The spring rates suck, but that's easily fixed.

The spring seats are also a pain to find for the rear
Where did you get them and what springs (rates and who makes 'em) did you replace them with? What do you mean by spring seats - like were you unable to re-use the perches?
