    As a few of you might know I purchased a dedicated set of autoX wheels a short time ago. A used set of 17x8 Enkei Tarmacs with 235/40/17 Falken RT-615 tires.





    Yesterday I installed my Whiteline 27/29 front swaybar and 22 adj. rear swaybar. Poltec front and rear endlinks finished out the package.

    So far I am absolutely amazed at the difference the swaybars made in the handling of the car. I expected quite a bit of change, but it has definitely exceeded that.

    Soon I will be installing Koni Inserts and JDM pink springs. Needless to say I am quite excited to see what those upgrades will have to offer.

    I'm going to bump my front sway bar up a "notch" as well- I'll be installing a 24/26 bar (been running a 22/24 one).

    How are you guys mounting the longer sedan front bars- running the sway links to the inside?

    Bump for any updates on setups, as now I am running STX instead of SM.

    38 psi seem about right to start with 615's?

    The 27/29 bar is actually for the STi. It ends up being a touch narrower than ideal. I used Poltec's adjustable endlinks without any problems. They are just a little / \, but not too bad.

    During the sumer season I typically run 40-45 front and 45-50 rear depending on the course (layout and surface) and temperature.

    Wow, those are some high psi's. Coming from 710's to these has been a dramatic change to say the least.

    Bump for having my Koni's and JDM Pinks installed over this last weekend. The car is an absolute blast!

    I am so looking forward to running with SJR this Sunday.

    I'd have to reread the rule book, but I'm pretty sure that would bump me out of STX.

    Ride heights w/ the pinks? Camber plates up front?

    The ride height is very even with the RCE lowering plates. I'll have to get some measurements and pictures.

    For consistency, where do you like to take your measurements?

    Yep, sure would. 2WD cars can add (or change) LSDs in STX or STU, but AWD cars are not permitted. An LSD would bump you to SP.
