This is my first major mod to the WRX I have done. Before I start doing any HP gain mods I wanted to fix the body roll of the WRX and make sure I will be able to put the extra power to the ground.
First step - Off to Cobb Tuning in Plano for a precise custom laser alignment for the street on their Hunter Optical Aligner.
Next I orderd the following from Rallysportdirect.com with 2 Day shipping. They did a great job getting me the items on time and were great to speak with. I will be ordering from them again.
Kartboy Front Endlinks - KAR KB-017-F
Kartboy Rear Endlinks - KAR - KB-017-08REAR
Eibach Sway Bar Kit with Front Adjustable 25mm Sway Bar and Rear Adjustable 22mm Sway Bar
I followed the instructions that came with the Sway Bars and download the Kartboy instructions. I also read other posts on this and other sites for a more help. Install took me about 2.5 hours. After I was done I noticed that the rear endlinks were not perpendicular and the fronts were way off. I drove it like this for a bit but searched online and found were others used the spacers from the rear endlink kit to fix the perpendicular issue. I alread used the spacers in the rear kit for the proper spacing in the rear lower control arm. So I went to Home Depot and got some washers to make my own spacers and it works much better now.
Rear After - Install note: have the car on ramps for there to be full load on the suspension. I used a floor jack in the middle as a saftey net (never really trust the plastic ramps). I also had to use the floor jack to lift the rear end a bit to fit the larger rear sway bar and then lowered it back on the ramps to complete the install
