    Tips for installing 2011 wrx suspension

    Hey, im soon going to be installing a new suspension for my 2011 wrx hatch. I have coilovers, sways bars, adjustable endlinks, strut tower bar, rear brace, and some bushings. Any tips on installing these, or tricks to help with the install as well as any items that may need torqued to certain settings. Thanks.

    PB Blaster, breaker bar, good torque wrench, and print out a sheet with all of the torque specs on it.

    I'd do a custom alignment when you're done. Check out the thread in my sig for some torque specs & install instructions. Gets extra washers for the endlinks.

    +2 on PB blaster. Remember when removing your stock sways/links there's no reason to separate the sways from the links. Just remove the bolts holding the links to the wheel assy and drop the bars out with the links still attached.
