    I Went Subaru, And I'm Never Going Back!

    Hi all! I bought my 04 WRX back in March with 96k. Up to 105k now (I drive 50-100 miles almost daily.) As far as mods go, just a Borla CBE and a lowered rear end that were done by the previous owner. The guy never bothered to fix the camber, so that's my first project. After that, looking to go to Stage 2, maybe a little higher. This is by far the best car I've ever owned. Even with the camber issue the handling is amazing, the engine is responsive, the turbo throws the power at you. I'm in love with this machine. I'll be posting pictures soon. See you on the boards.

    It's on the growing list of things to do. I already bought the camber kit, I just need time to throw it on. Belt will be next, followed by the uppipe.

    Welcome! Glad to hear how much you're enjoying the car!

    Definitely get the timing belt done as soon as possible! And what do you mean it has a "lowered rear end?" Does it just have lowering springs in the back and not the front?

    As far as I know. The rear springs are aftermarket and as far as I can tell the fronts are stock. I was under the impression that the WRX had a slight rake from the factory. Is that not the case? I honestly don't know a lot about WRXs, so I'm learning as I go. All I know for sure is the camber on both rears is miles off, but the fronts are spot on.
