    the ones you posted the pic of are the four piece set- 3 spherical, 1 Grp N- so they would be a no go

    you might shop around some of the bigger wrecking yards-might get lucky finding some of the aluminum links used (maybe scour the private for sale- the part out threads on nasioc possibly?)

    the cheapest upgrade option obviously is oe links + Grp N bushings

    Can one of you guys confirm I have this right?

    4 x 2005-2007 Wagon Front Lateral Link - Part#20250FE240
    2 x Group N Inner front bushings (pair)
    1 x Group N Outer Lateral Link Bushing (set of four)

    No inner rear bushings because we are not using the rear arms, but two sets of inner front bushings.

    Do the alignment bolts in the inner rear arms still work the same way?

    Poltec.. order direct from them or are there ClubWRX vendors to support?

    Sorry for all the questions, just trying to get it right the first time.

    Fixed.

    Even though you are using front arms you still need to use the rear bushing as the toe adjustment requires a different bushing.

    Poltec is a direct order.

    For about the same cost as the Subaru parts + Poltec endlinks, I could get a full set of Poltec links with urethane bushings (should be AutoX legal) and not have to mess with pressing in bushings. Anyone heard anything on these?

    Not as pretty as the carbon fiber ones. But pretty or not, would it possibly be a good option being that buying all the parts from Subaru will cost just as much?

    Poltec seems to have a pretty solid reputation. Anyone ever hear of them breaking just from driving hard? Hitting curbs doesn't count.

    Give Tristan @ Royal Performance a call and see what he can do on the Subaru parts. Tell him you talked to JR about it.

    Nice! If you can, post up a thread about the install. I was pressed for time when I did mine.

    do you have the Harbor Freight tool as shown on scoobymods? if you don't you'll need something that resembles it- a vice will be very, very handy as well

    some suggestions-

    press the oe bushings out and then practice re-installing them so you get the feel of pressing the bushings in (remember you have to over press them to get the dust sleeve out the other side and then press back in from the other side)

    the Grp N ones will be much firmer and tougher to press in- for some reason it's more so on the aluminum links vs the steel ones. I ruined two bushings before quitting and going back to the drawing board. I ended opening the ends of the aluminum links slightly (wrapped sand paper around the appropriate sized socket and took off some material on the inside)- I also slightly beveled the openings (took off the sharp edge)

    use plenty of silicone grease, be patient- if the bushing starts to go in cocked- start over, if it goes in then seems to be binding- start over

    it's a little work to be sure, but worth it when your done
