    Big Sky,

    I still don't really get what these actually do for the wagon?

    Are they lighter???

    How much are they?

    Where can I get them for my 02 wag?

    Thanks,

    Lowball

    P.S. welcome to the dark side!

    They are lighter ~ 1.5 lbs/side, but that's just a bonus. The front arms (transverse links) are just a big "bushing", forged aluminum is much stiffer than the stamped steel ones- less deflection, less camber/toe changes- better grip. With aluminum arms you also run spherical sway links as well- another bonus.

    Cost is higher than the GD ones unfortuantely- might be a function of how many were (are) made. The rest of the world gets aluminum arms on the WRX sedan stock- so they've made a lot of them.

    The best place is to look at the bigger importers of subaru cars- ie gr8wheels, kingpin, etc.- you can complete takeoffs for ~ $400ish. New yur probably looking at $800+- shame when the GD ones can be had for $300 and change.

    Good to be on the dark side!

    Big Sky,

    This looks like a nice brace. Where might one find one ?

    I looked at the cusco etc but I was told they dont fit so well on the wagon ( 2002 ). Do you know if I was mis-informed ?
    What's the square root of 69 ?.........8 something

    Cusco's should fit- the subframes are the same sedan/wagon. The STi one can be had from just about anyone carrying STi/SPT parts- got mine from MIke @ subaruxtras.com.

    I'm bumping up my rear sway bar one notch to 21mm w/ STi's new rear sway. This should mate up well w/ the 20mm front. It should dial out a smidge more understeer.

    Man, I have been awaiting with baited breath watching all of the new upgrades going on hear. But I feel horrible right now...my 2004 silver wagon was stolen last night and I feel likes it a nightmare.

    I had an sti lower arm bar ready to go in as well, along with a KN filter.

    BIGSKY, your car looks awesome!

    Sorry for being a pisser, but I know you guys love your cars to, and would understand.

    thanks

    balthus- man I'm really sorry , another fellow just had his stolen last week

    I hope you get your car back and it's in perfect shape and the dirty bastard who stole it get his.

    Lowball- yes it will fit all wagons and sedans- it's 21mm, just a scoch bigger than the oem sedan bar- 22% stiffer.

    The "one off" combo front rear has worked very well for me in the past- I used to run 19mm front/ 20mm rear w/ my sedan. This 20mm/21mm combo feels very similar. I got to put it through it's paces Saturday night at a night autox and really put it through it's paces on one of the most amazing roads I've ever driven today!

    The GGB suspension is a dandy- this was a very (extremely) twisty road (a couple of turns I was looking for 1st gear!). It's also not a "perfect' road- lot's of imperfections. The suspension just swallowed it up. It's hard to describe how perfectly matched this setup was for this road- driving nirvana
