    One ?

    I have an issue unscrewing the bolt to connect rear support brace to chassis. The rear control arm pivot bolt nut is to hard to unscrew. I went to few shops and they asked $100. I don't think it should cost that much, any ideas how to unscrew it?
    Thanks.

    Hammer and pin did the job. First I hammered them and then unscrewed bolts. Not bad, both braces are on now.

    After I added whiteline subframe braces car got on stiffness, it got an extra flatness, and feels completely different, better. I took it up to Tahoe for ski and enjoyed the ride. It feels in control, much faster in curves.
    So far I changed sways with eibach, endlinks with kartboy, and added whiteline braces. May be I'll add front subframe brace. It also seems as it is the time for stiffer bushings too. My plan is that before I do anything with engine to add more power I make it stiffer and more responsive to handle the power.
    Anyhow it realy feels good, the car is lovely toy.

    Thanks, they are the most fun subarus to drive. Not that big, but realy the most fun to drive.
    I am learning about tuning it, meanwhile I'll stiffen it, so by time I get to tuning it'll be ready.
    Last time I tuned my car it was long time ago and that was a carburetor engine.
    The imprezas are deffinetely the best subarus to drive, at least for me.
