We've heard a lot of stories on how Konis aren't a good choice for rallycross use. It figures that we found a screaming deal on a set of Konis for a 2002-'07 Impreza. They fit our chassis with only a few easily remedied issues. We bought them and are going to see just how they hold up to severe abuse. We'll let you know how it goes.

One issue with the later WRX struts is that the rear perch height is slightly higher—but that's actually good for our off-road purposes. The brake line tabs are also slightly different, but some zip ties solved that problem.

It's amazing what a few well-placed zip ties can do for all sorts of problems.

Zip-ties:the bailing wire of the 21st century!

Unfortunately, I haven't had great luck with the Konis on the rough stuff. I prefer OEM STi struts or Tokico D-Specs. If you haven't bought SS brake lines yet, the GD Impreza lines fit and match up correctly with your GD struts!
