    More Suspension stuff for sale:

    http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/person...ml#post2312484

    I have the following polyurethane suspension bushings for sale. Prices are what I paid for them, and the are firm because I feel that they are a good price already. The bushings were used in an Auto X car that was not street driven and have very few miles.

    * Trailing arms with the front bushing $80
    * rear trailing arm bushing $40
    * Front control arm Front Bushings $30
    * Whiteline Front Control Arm Offset Bushing (KCA375) $80
    * This is an STX LEGAL ALK!

    These parts are small so shipping isn't bad at all.

    PM me or post with any questions!

    And more... going back to stock suspension...

    http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/person...ml#post2315511

    Alright, I've gotta go back to stock for a multitude of reasons... So here is a chance to own a great suspension at a great price! You're not only paying for parts, but the time and research that I went though to come up with these spring rates and parts, getting them to work properly together.

    $1200.00

    Click my sig for the build thread!
    http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/auto-x...an-thread.html

    What does it come with you say?

    *Koni inserts front and rear. The fronts have 3k miles on them and the rears have 5k miles. I have an extra set of fronts that are supposedly blown that can be sent out for a rebuild at a fraction of the cost of a new set. They are adjustable and there are shock dynographs in my build thread! Stock through 600# springs can be paired with these strut inserts.

    *Wagon strut bodies - These will give you MORE static camber when used on a sedan. in the rear without going to a camber plate I have -2.1 degrees of camber with cross camber at 0. AWESOME!

    *D_Rex Bump Extenders - you gain back about 3/4" of bump travel when using these extenders on your front struts! I can't imagine Koni inserts without them!

    *Ground Control Adjustable Springs
    - 450# front and rear. The car handles great with these but is compliant enough that the girlfriend approves. I've gone on one 1k mile road trip and it was great. It wasn't a harsh ride.

    *Race Comp Engineering LOWERING Camber Plates-You can't get these anymore!!! They are back ordered from RCE! These help with the bump travel even more! by lowering the car another 3/8" without sacrificing bump travel. They are awesome plates and I would use them again in a heart beat if I ever rebuild the WRX for more than DD duty.

    This setup if regionally competitive with a decent drive and good tires! I consistently have been finishing in the top 10 in 60 driver events in PAX. I've won a few STX classes as well.

    Pic time!




    ^waiting for action


    Dumped

    Paired with my suspension bushings which can be bought here:
    http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/person...ml#post2312484

    And 22mm swaybars all around or even a 24mm front bar, you would have an AWESOME setup with some sticky tires!

    The suspension is currently on the car and once a buyer is found I will take it off of the car. I would rather keep it all together unless someone can work out something so that everything is sold.

    Man, I hate this! I was just about happy with the car. However a lot of things have come up... even more, I've since busted my left ear drum, so I've gotta take care of that!

    Chick pulled out infront of me and the brakes went straight to ABS and even pumping them the car wouldn't stop. So i rear ended her, crumpled the hood and pushed the upper portion of the radiator hose into the motor... %^$#^%$#$%#$%#$%#$%#^$%#^$%

    Anyone have a bug eye front end laying around?

    SOMEONE BUY THIS SUSPENSION SO I CAN FIX MY CAR!!!! Riding my road bike in 100 degree heat sucks.

    Well I have an idea, and I want to confirm it. if it is true then It will be more than worth it!

    Basically, I want to see how much camber I can get with the wagon struts in the front with stock top hats. I know in the rear at STOCK ride height I can get -2.1* So I am hoping for somewhere in the neighborhood of around -2.3* front.

    The setup would be STI's '04 STI pinks ( not the WRX Sti Pinks - Part numbers 203304S060 (342#), 203804S070(285#)) on Wagon struts. If I can achieve moderate camber without camber plates. I'll be happy. Then transfer over my extra set of konis, D_rex bump extenders, camber bolts, and bam have something that is fun to drive again.

    If not, then it was the cost of some blown/cheap wagon struts.

    Ironic how things come full circle...

    That's what I figured. I either have a set of JDM STi wagon struts that have been freshly powder coated (I hope), or a set of '05 Wagon Strut bodies (already cut for Koni's) I could part with perhaps.
