I wish I had done them in the first place to some degree, but obviously not enough to pony up now and put in the <2 hrs to replace them.
    Yeah the GN rear mounts are unrealistically expensive I gritted my teeth when ordering them.

    update:

    Wow this thing is a different car. Ride is quite good, turn in is amazing, handling is like someone stole my car and gave me a different one. Car has an ever so slight tendency to understeer but when poked t will oversteer. Tracking through a corner is very stable, and in a straight line it is very planted and not nervous at all. I'm glad I went with the Com-C mounts. That extra caster works wonders.

    Excellent call....

    I pulled this from another forum, I hope it is useful to anyone here as a quick reference guide. I am not taking credit for this, it was posted by kingsalami in www.wrxforums.com

    These Damn RCE blacks need to stop settling. Hopefully they are done. I have had to readjust the toe 4 times.
