New Tanabe Suspension for 2011 WRX Hatch and Sedan

10 Jul

Brand new from Tanabe are 3 new suspension goodies. Designed to keep your tires firmly planted.

First, the strut tower brace. Ties the front strut towers together for improved overall geometry and better turn in response. Plus, it looks cool, finished in the signature bright red. Priced at just $130.00

Next, the multipoint lower arm bar/underbrace. This unique 4 point underbrace ties together the suspension mounting points for the front subframe. Featuring triangulated reinforcements, making it very rigid. Again, this keeps geometry in check when going over uneven roads, particularly when turning. Immediate improvement in steering response will be felt as well. Priced at $226.00.

Lastly, the S-OC coilovers for the 2011+ WRX are here! These affordable, high quality adjustable coilovers allow you full control of rideheight. Unlike many of the el-cheapo coilovers on the market today, these are built application specific, with spring rates and helper springs designed to maximize comfort and performance. Featuring a short stroke damper, which allows maximum suspension travel even when lowered. Allows you to lower the car from -.25 inch to -2.25 inches front and back vs stock. Spring rates are 5 kg/mm front (279.98 lbs/inch) front and 4 kg/mm (223.99 lbs/inch) out back. If you want a comfortable, affordable coilover from a name you can trust, these are built for you! Priced at $1025.00 for the full set.
