  1. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    I have a 2007 wrx and when I make a turn to either direction, the car wants to turn in that direction when I start going straight again. I’m not sure what the issue is but I think it’s the cheap coil overs the previous owner put onto it

    So I bought a WRX from the rust belt and now I am looking at buying some performance parts to help with future power and to clean up these rusted underbelly pieces. I would love if you could guys and gals could offer up some good suspension pieces/sites to find them at a decent price. My build...

    I have an '06 WRX that I am thinking about lowering. Problem is, I live in a state that can get some pretty heavy snow falls and sometimes it's clearance isn't good enough at OEM ride height. Has anybody found any good solutions for being able to lower the car during the summer and keep it OEM...

    I’ve been looking to get into a set of coilovers on my 2020 WRX. It’s between the silvers neomax, fortune auto 500s, and possibly BC br coils. I’m looking for obviously great handling but comfort as well. Currently on stock suspension with TEIN lowering springs and I can’t stand the ride. Thanks...

    Good day everyone, I have a completely stock 2010 WRX STI aside from an aftermarket exhaust on it when I bought it. I Rallycross it and also daily it. Please note: the problem didn't develop after a rallycross, COVID-19 cancelled the majority of them and the last event I went to was 2 months...
  7. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    Hello Everyone! I'm new here, and new to the WRX fam, but I'm very interested in upgrading a few bits of my car to take her to the next level. I live in southern Maine (New England - rough winters) and I want my suspension to handle the bumpy roads a bit better, but not feel like I'm suddenly...

    So i went to change my wheels from winter to summer, awhile back and noticed this dark black clumpy grease all over the inside of my wheel. I figured it was the cv joint boot and decided I should replace it since the Front passenger axle seemed fine. So i replaced it with my buddy and when we...
  9. General Maintenance, Troubleshooting & Accidents.
    So I recently bought a 2006 WRX Limited wagon about a month ago for a really good deal, guy I bought it from only had it for 1,000 miles as he though the engine was shot, it was getting a miss fire code on 2 cylinders, and would not make power after 4k, but I took my chances. After hours of...

  11. Suspension & Wheels
    I recently acquired a completely stock 2003 WRX with around 50k miles. Previous owners generally took good care of it, and I've been patching it up for a smoother ride. After getting some clunking in the rear diagnosed, it was recommended to me by a local mechanic that I change out all my...

    Wanted to know what people thought of these coilovers. I have a 17 STi and hurt my back (double digit surgeries) and wanted to know if this helps the ride quality. Love the car and if I can make it more comfortable to drive I won’t have to sell it. Thanks!

    ive been thinking about either coilovers or air ride for a spirited daily driver, what are the advantages/disadvantages of either or?
  14. Suspension & Wheels
    I am wondering if anyone knows any tricks getting a OEM strut and spring back in the front. No matter what I do I can't get enough room to bolt the strut back to wheel hub bracket.
  15. Suspension & Wheels
    Took in my 03 WRX yesterday to get a 80k mi tune up and the mechanic said all 4 struts were blown. Very unfortunate because there's no way I can afford new struts. Anywho, I bought the car with JIC Magic FLTA2 Coilovers (retail $2,000 new) and I don't know what to do with them or even how much I...

  19. Suspension & Wheels
    I just got under my 02 wrx sedan, and noticed an accumulation of thick gray grease under the front passenger side control arm. It looks to be coming from the rear bushing area, and accumulating on the sub frame. I looked for leaks at the ball joints and cv joints, and those all seemed good. Is...
  20. New Member Introductions
    Hello everyone, I just got done with the engine on my 03 and now cant seem to get the car to stop fast enough. Seems like the power it makes now is more than the brakes can handle. Are there any upgrades to stock brakes that can be made to help it stop better? Or do I need to due a full out...
