    Here we go......

    First off, like Powder said, it is way easier to get to the 12mm nuts on the tops of the rear towers if you take the seatbelt off. There is one bolt that holds it on that uses a 14mm socket and I used a 6" extension so I wouldn't bash my knuckles any worse than I already had at this point.



    Here is one of the rear springs installed. The rears are much easiet than the fronts because there is no top washer you have to worry about and they can only go one way.



    And here is my car now that it's dropped. I set up my re-alignment appointment for this coming Friday, and I set up an appointment for this coming Saturday to have teh sweeta$$ wheels/tires you see in my avatar re-balanced and put back on the car, after they remove the wonderful screw I ran over in the fall from one of them.



    You can definately see that the fender gap up front is MUCH less than stock. I'm a happy guy, and I'm proud to say that I'm finally done modding!
    I drive a WRX and work for Harley-Davidson .

    Wingless alas. Too bad it took a 50 ton truck to make it happen.

    Yeah, I hate to say it, but I am done. I'm at that point to where the only direction I can go from here is a new turbo, and I need to save for a house and I'm currently saving for an engagement ring for teh woman. The car performs incredibly well now and should remain reliable for my daily driver needs, so I'm done with the modding.

    Married life's pretty cool. Give alot, take a little. You'll enjoy it (maybe?). Congrats on the engagement. You should just buy a nicer car when you pay your WRX off and then tear into the WRX.

    That discussion has already been had.......She said if we need a bigger vehicle, I can get a WRX wagon, no questions asked. I even made her put it in writing.

    Thanks! I like to think she's a good one. One never really knows, one can just be pretty sure. I wish foresight was 20/20.
