    New (to me) '07 WRX Wagon. Time to start the Rally trasition.

    Hey all,

    2007 WRX wagon 2.5L 5 speed Manuel, that seems quite fond of dirt and sideways travel.
    I'm out in Southern California and head out to the deserts and mountains all around the South Western US.

    I slapped some armor under her and now it's time for suspension, intake and so on. Obviously there's a lot one can do and even more to choose from so I figured I'd toss this out for suggestions.

    I'd like it to be an all around car. Mountains to desert. Dirt to track.
    She will be used in high heat and cold. I'm already seeing I will have to get a few sets of tires for snow/ice, off-road and track.
    I've been reading about adjustable suspensions and like the option of being able to raise and lower for the conditions at hand.

    So, from a stock WRX, where does a fella start? Engine, suspension, brakes, weapons systems?
    What questions do I need to ask myself?

    Thanks in advance, and I'll post a photo when the internets begin functioning well again. (I'm in the arctic at present)

    Welcome!

    I would start with the suspension. Then go stage 2 and tune it!

    Got any pics? We don't see very many 06-07 wagons.

    Here it is.

    I'm open to suggestions on suspension and tuning. Looking for suggestions on specifics and so forth.
