Does anybody know where I can find a set of the elusive $70 a piece STI V5 struts? Steve d??? I'm looking to buy a set soon after X-mas, along with a FHI 20mm bar, and maybe a pink "i" emblem (I'm tire of painting my ghetto one).

Thanks for the info everybody. I've decided I'll get either these or the AGX's. I've got to get new tires first!

I have driven my car with Version 5 and I have ridden in pleiades' car with his AGXs. he had his set on 3 front and 8 rear, and my car was slightly stiffer. I would say that Version 5s are about even with AGX set at full stiff. But I think I would rather have the AGXs for the adjustability if I had it to do over again.

woohoo! tein HA's for me! but in all honesty, someone told me that the AGX's have a small piston or something so they aren't as durable as the Ver. V

These?


I ordered them a while ago, got the money to them Friday, and they showed up on my step today. $75 a piece for the struts.
www.subaruparts.com
They've got these and they've got adjustable ones for twice as much. I've been told that the V5 struts are the same as the P1 and a KYB non-adjustable. I'd bet the new SPT/STi ones are KYB AGX, or something darned similar.

Hey man,

What springs are those. I don' think I have seen them before
SPT/Eibach - also ordered from Subaruparts.com. :)
Just a tad over $500 for springs and struts (plus shipping/tax/whatever)

good thing you ordered those a while ago because you are going to be rapped now...everywhere now has almost doubled the price of those struts...including www.wsubarupars.com..
the price is now...$299.95 for (2) grand total is 599.90 not including shipping? i don't think so
exeter subaru also has them but i haven't called for a price because they also changed thier price...from $292 for (4) to Call and we all know that when it says call it means EXPENSIVE....
BUT i am still looking too.....

Doohude. I didn't know.

Thank god for excellent (albiet completely random) timing. :)

I started my order Nov 14th. It took me 1 month to get the MBNA coupons to him, then to get the check for the balance over there.

I'm really glad I bought when I did. I'll email and see why the price doubled.

I got a response from subaruparts.com

I asked if it was due to low stock: Nope, in fact SOA has apparently upped their supply

I asked if it was to try and get people to buy the KYB adjustables: Two things... the SPT ones are KYB (confirmed) and No, SOA just wants to charge more.

Scott sent an email off to SOA asking about it, we'll see if they let him know. :)
