Hello all, I own a 2005 WRX. I actually just bought it. It has just about 197k on it. I need some some parts and was wondering if you all could give me some suggestions or affirm Im heading in the right direction.
So I got some pictures back from my mechanic today about the noise my 2005 WRX was making. He thinks its in the clutch or the starter since I didnt hear it until I replaces the starter. Well he pulled the starter off and since he had it on the lift he could actually check out the fly wheel.. Its in pretty bad shape. I guess the dude who I got it from had a bad starter longer then he led me to believe.
Looking at this one. Good? fair price?
So while we are there, we figure we should replace the clutch as well. Its got 197k on it and Im almost positive its on the stock clutch. It feels ok to me but my mechanic says he can tell it is tired. So I figure Ill just replace it.
So this is the one Im looking at. Is this going to be ok? Id like to increase HP soon, but at this rate its going to be awhile before I can rebuild the motor... so will this work and last a bit with some power eventually?
passenger side axel is also bad he said.
If you have any suggestions on parts please let me know.I do have a budget, so I really cant drop $500 on a clutch. Id like to keep it around 500-600 total if possible. Id like to order the parts this week to have them to install this weekend. Thanks for your help.
