    '12 premium RED hatch WRX

    Actually to be honest I feel it's the opposite. Now I'm semi new to this stuff so I could just be interpreting it wrong. I feel it's more bouncy. It absorbs bigger bumps much better though. And of course the biggest gain I've noticed is being able to take turns a lot tighter. I can't wait to upgrade ways/end links.

    My car, a 2013 sedan, is riding on stock springs/dampers with the Whiteline 24mm/22mm fr/rr adjustable heavy duty sways dialed in for the stock suspenders along with the Perrin end links. This set up should work well without being too harsh for a DD

    Track use... Hmm... I will have to defer that.... Track application will demand more than just simple motion control.....

    So many factors to consider such as the camber/toe/caster and whether you have bought the adjustable mounts or not.... But an adjustable sways will help u dial in your set up

    Ok... Since you've upgraded your dampers/springs, you've noticed a significant enhancement in the handling.

    As it is, your upgrades are performing double duty to compensate for the weak sway bars and robbery end links of the stock set up...

    Fora track application you will need to upgrade the sways, end links and even the mounting brackets along with an aggressive alignment. In addition u might want to consider further modifying your suspension with either polyeuratane or solid spherical bushings.

    A little hard to respond using a phone

    There are so many factors to consider. I don't want it to be to aggressive for a dd but I want it to be fun for a track. I don't plan on going every weekend, maybe just a couple times. I need to do some research on alignment and what adjustments do what and so on. But as far as sways and links there on the list to get haha. It's a long list. If you have any reading material on alignments and stuff ( I know basics ) please pass it on.

    Most critical is the camber.... Since you are dd'ing I wouldn't consider dialing in too much negative camber... Or for that matter any toe adjustments.... You have to consider the tire ware and the AWD drive train.

    Since your car is dropped find a reputable shop to dial in the alignment. But if you haven't done so, consider getting some adjustable camber/caster plates along with the sways

    Re: '12 premium RED hatch WRX

    And one more.... Lol... I know that " EJ257 " is a proponent of adjusting or tuning the stock camber.... And I agree w/ this recommendation especially for track use and for lowered/dropped cars... Well, my recommendation is this:

    I am assuming you've aligned your car since the spring/damper mods.

    Get the sways and end links mounted and run the track to determine: a) are u pushing the set up beyond it's limit or b) there is way more room left over on the current set up for u to explore and comfortably DD while enjoying the occasional track forays....

    The reason I ask this is to ensure that the "solid" bushings on all suspender components and the aggressuve alignment won't ruin your DD experience

    Hey! Loved reading your build thread. The shift boots are no longer listed based on the link you posted many months back. Any chance in finding them and relinking? I would love to get them! I bought redlinegoods boots for my 05 and while a great product, too thick and wouldn't clip down properly.

    Thanks rurso01, I had a guy ask me the same thing a couple months ago. This is what I sent him, it's only the shift boot, I can't find the e-brake boot.

    The lastest pic of my car

    I got a roof rack and inno medium faring last week. After installing the OEM rack I didn't like the silver bars going across. So I pulled them off and plasti-dipped the bars and it came out ok. It was a little to cold for the plasti-dip but it will last me the winter. It's hard to see them, I'll post other pics later.
