    Oops, wrong link.

    Is the rack a straight bolt-in?

    Like I said, I think it depends on the year (of the rack).

    Pretty easy but you need a spring compressor. Loosen the top nut from in the car/ hood before you take them off if you can without them spinning. An impact wrench helps if that doesn't work, and then you can just do them off of the car. It can be done in a couple hours but I'd give it 4 total if it is your first one.

    Difficulty level = 3-4 beers

    I was just wondering this us my first Subaru wrx and I don't know about these cars but I was wondering when you do an oil change do you have to lift the whole car up or just jack up the front
    And also where are the spark plugs and wires at

    There are no wires. The plugs are located centrally on each cylinder head, one per cylinder, each under its own coil.

    I can't tell you whether you fit under your car to do an oil change. I fit under mine.

    Access to the plugs is easier than it looks. I can't fit under the car for oil changes, but that's my fault, not the car's...
