    water coming out of exhaust?

    Ok so i just recently put on a sti axle back for my 02 wrx. After driving a few miles i noticed that light white smoke and water drops were coming out of the tip. Should i be worried? It has been raining here and it could've been outside could that also be the cause?

    Water is normal. Exhaust is heated, absorbs moisture, then cools and condenses.

    Did you use PB blaster or WD-40 during the install? In all likelihood, this is the source of the smoke.

    Cheers.
