Reasons to do a spoiler/ducktail over a wing? Cost, simplicity, convenience, rules, etc.

You'll notice most very high end shocks do not have separate ride height and preload.

It can be a good thing...

That's a good idea. If I get some time in the next few days I'll put that together. I'd probably get the Subaru part numbers though.

I agree with this. I also did a crude adobe illustrator measuring exercise and was leaning towards 5x100. Could be off, but that's still my guess for now.

It will be better with the 2020 PP shocks then MY14 shocks. The 2020 non PP shocks would ride the best out of the factory suspensions.

RCE springs + stock shocks of any type do ride more harshly...
