Post pics and specs of your respective setup!
19x8.5" ET45 Tenzo Cuzco's
Racecomp Engineering Tarmac II's 8k/7k Spring rates, OEM tophat, no camber plates, everything else is OEM.
Might want to add those are rear swaybars that fit. Front bars for a WRX won't fit (at least not the GT)
This is a great idea. I've been looking for something like since I got my car (3 weeks, lol) but what about making it vehicle specific 2.5, 3.6r and gt. Being that some suspension components are different from car to car. From what I've seen, the coilovers from a gt won't fit on a 2.5 or a 3.6r...
Nonsense. I have the same coilovers on my GT that DeltaSniper has on his 2.5i.
Most of the suspension is all the same fitment between 5th gen models. Front swaybars are different for the GT, but I think the 2.5i & 3.6R use the same front bar.

Ride is nice, handling improved, makes the car look much better...
Stock OEM Wheels(lurking around for new wheels)

Drop is right where i wanted it, somewhat bouncy at times, but nothing to crazy hoping the RSB will improve the handling a bit more in the twistys
