    Question ALK mounting?

    Has anyone mounted these with an ALK?

    With the ALK the front subframe is mounted using spacers. Did you trim the aero panel where it attaches to the subframe so the front edge of the panel lies flush or mount it as is with the front edge held high by the subframe?

    Update:

    I decided to trim the panels to get a flush fit.

    Just thought I would mention that Subaru Genuine Parts sells the 2 side pieces as a kit that includes all the mounting hardware.

    i got the kit from SGP this week.

    Their directions are slightly different. they provide a total of 4 bolts, 2 screws and the rest are plastic clips.

    instead of a 6mm bolt for big sky's location, they have a screw instead. 6mm bolts go in the front most outside and rearmost inside holes. i found that there's already a threaded hole in the front bolt hole...the rear location has a hole as well, but no threads. additionally, it's way too big for the 6mm bolt they've provided. you'll need to use a clip for that or get a bigger bolt and tap.

    i'm thinking of just using that rear bolt to secure where the screw would go instead and using a clips for the rear.

    possible it might vary slightly on what year you have (as to what is available on "bolting" it up)- main thing is getting it in there secure

    iirc that piece didn't require any drilling/tapping, the two longer piece do though

    Sorry to bring back an old thread. I just installed the sides and the rear diffuser with the cusco install kit. My question is though can I use the tranny cover on the automatic?

    I finally did this on my wagon!
    I got a set of these shipped to me from a junk yard in CA for basically nothing. they were a bit mangled, but with a hot air gun and some fiberglass, they were back in relatively good shape. I followed bigsky's instruction except I drilled the pilot holes with the pieces taped to the bottom. I then removed the panal and drilled the larger holes for the clips that go on the outer corners of the panel. I put the panel in place held by the clips and made sure the other pilot holes were in the right spot.

    My subframe is a little squished, possibly from a jack, so instead of placing the clip in a hole in the sub frame, I drilled 2 holes and used a zip tie. Since the subframe is squished, I couldn't get a clip to bottom out.

    It would be cool, but I doubt I'll get a large front undertray or a diffuser. I doubt without those, I'll notice any difference in the way my car handles. But ya never know...
