SUBARU XV (GP7)

6 posts in this topic

Hi all, 

 

Was a Legacy owner and now to the 2012 XV, looking for a set of lowering springs or coil over for this family ride.

 

Do any, know of contacts for my GP7 locally?

 

Reason the ride tall and the gap between the wheel-arc to the tires can fit my pair of shoes stack.

 

Thanks

i think tough to find in SG due to the small numbers of Subaru XVs on the road. most workshop can indent for you but might take some time.

 

save yourself a bit of money and import from overseas?

should be 5-600 bucks after shipping.

 

have fun!

 

p.s. might be able to source some cheaper ones on eBay.

Since it is the GP platform, wouldn't it be similar to the Imprezas?

Maybe the stock height Impreza springs would lower the XV?

 

Just my 2 cents.

Had check with few shop, they claim that if i were to use the impreza spring it would be to soft.

 

As my ride compared to impreza is slightly heavy, maybe some bros can share so light on it.

You are right about the Impreza springs being too soft, so go for aftermarket springs which are about 30% stiffer than stock.

So far, I have not come across XV specific lowering springs, but we do have for Forester (SH) and Impreza (GE/GH) standard heigh springs.
