We put King Springs on KYB Struts in our car (GC Body Impreza -turbo) last Spring. [standard height springs/GR2 struts] ..First event was ice cross , second overall , next Trail of the Gnu rally (real fast) 2nd overall , finished the season with a third at Totem rally , good enough for 2 nd overall in the BCRally Championship . The 1st place car was running the same suspension … I am over 70 so not as quick as I use to be but this set up makes me look good .. It has no vices , very predictable.
Totem Winter Rally Nov 2014,
No Alibi Brisk Gravel TSD, June 2014

We are real pleased with the guidance we got from Paul with this set up . The car has lots of other Primitive parts as a result and all are top shelf ..
