Subaru Pro-R launches bespoke Eibach chassis solution.
31.08.11 // by admin
Pro-R, the official tuning division of Subaru UK, has launched an exclusive chassis upgrade kit for all saloon and hatchback versions of the new Sti. The kit covers all variants from MY08 onwards and allows enthusiasts to upgrade their car without affecting the manufacturer’s warranty.
Developed in conjunction with Eibach’s own chassis engineers and ex-Prodrive development guru Mike Wood, the spring kit is clearly identifiable by its distinctive Pro-R blue hue. It’s not all aesthetics however, with a specific design being developed exclusively for Pro-R, offering a sublime balance between ride and handling, lowering the car by approximately 10-15mm and working peerlessly with the OEM dampers.
The springs are pre-stressed at the factory, to ensure that they will never sag, and thanks to Eibach’s unparalleled research and development, also feature a unique ‘progressive’ coil that offers a softer section for everyday driving and commuting, combined with a stiffer, more aggressive section further up the spring to equip the car with precise road-holding and cornering. This seamless progression offers true versatility, in-keeping with the car’s original virtues. The Pro-R springs also benefit from a class-leading 5 year warranty and TUV approval. The RRP is £208.33 + VAT.
