Suspension & Brakes
Installed Swift springs while utilizing stock struts. The ride is very compliant because the drop isn't too dramatic. Look-wise... Show more, it's dead on and should have come that way from the factory. Also, added a 20mm rear sway bar from an 07 STi and Kartboy solid endlinks.
Here are some before and after pics:
Red 4/2 pot calipers from an 07 WRX was also installed when the suspension was out. Stoptech S/S brake lines, Hawk performance brake pads, and Motul brake fluid were used along with the stock WRX rotors. In order to fit the rear calipers, Kartboy rear caliper adapters were needed. Also, a master brake cylinder from an 07 STi was installed. The STi master cylinder is slightly larger and aids in pedal feel by eliminating the mushiness.
That should improve handling and braking significantly. I didn't want too drastic of a drop because driving in NYC is hard enough as it is without it being slammed.
Future mods include STi lateral links. Show Less
