    Next step...

    After coils are straightened out. Suspension is in need of replacment.

    Changing suspensions in the '02 and '03.
    Tein has coil-overs and front and rear upper aluminum strut bars specifically for the WRX.
    This system lowers the car 2" in front and 1.3" in the rear.
    Coil-over system (4 struts and mounting hardware) $1780.00
    Front and rear upper aluminum strut bars $ 270.00
    This suspension replacement is about $1200.00 more than the called for factory replacement.
    Will post part numbers and Tein link later.

    Wandering...

    I did not buy my subie new, it was used. I have an acquaintence in town who has a newer WRX, an '06 and he has trouble keeping up with me, I'm wandering if the previous owner had it dynoed or the computer adjusted. I can get up to 65mph before redline in second, 105mph in third, 135mph in fourth, and well in fifth the speedometer only goes to 140mph. Does that sound stock? Could that effect my idle if the previous owner had adjusted the computer, (ECU) or whatever? Anyone who takes a serious ride with me always comments on the speed to gear.
    I spend alot of time in second and third...

    Fog Lights

    Had to replace fog lamp.
    Upgraded both lamps from factory 65watts to 100watts.

    Eiko part#01014BP (100watt) only $8.46 each.

    Easy replacement, becareful with retainer clip... hard to replace.
