Coilover questions for 2019

Hey Everyone,

Quick question about my 2019 BRZ. Will coilovers designed for an older model BRZ fit the 2019? Or did they change the chassis a bit this time around?

Thanks for your time!

-Kevin

Same. Nothing different with the chassis at all.

Your car has a stiffer rear sway bar (~30% stiffer). Most companies didn't change the spring rates of their coilovers for the updated model. Your car will be a bit more stiffer on the rear during cornering. It depends if you like it or not.

Thank you both for your replies.

@nikitopo that is great to know. So far its been handling great on turns. I'm getting the hang of it moving from a fwd car originally.
