  1. Past hour
  2. Need advise on 64 wrx sti.

    You got the tyre codes for what our have? And also a link to tyre spacers?
  3. Thanks Mr B. Would the BC/Meister be considered "average taiwan coilovers"? I do think it's generally better to stick with springs/struts to try and maintain the best of both worlds, but as you say it's best not to limit the travel too much by going too low! From what i understand, the current springs are essentially the same as the original prodrive, or PCA remakes so do lower it a bit more than standard.
  4. average taiwan coilovers are useless on uk B roads and downgrade in real handling and grip . Get new top mounts and look into custom spring options from springcoil.co.uk if want alter things a bit . Don't lower too much on standards struts as can run out of compression travel plus limited travel range and spring preload changes can make for poorer handling .
  5. Today
  6. Gearbox rebuild

    no gearbox will handle lots of launches, they all fail, even 6 speed's, sooner or later. What are you actualy trying to do?
  7. Southcoast tuner

    Although it's not that close, there is Triton motorsport in Bournemouth. When i was there i used them for a few things and they're a good group of guys. Duncan of Racedynamix has space there, or at least did, and he's fairy well reputed in the Subaru community as a mapper. Though i will say he's normally heavily in demand and can be difficult to get a hold of, the guys at Triton should be able to offer some advice, and/or give you his contact details though.
  8. Car: 05 WRX Wagon Wheels: Standard Suspension: KYB Excel-G, GB270 springs. So, i replaced all the struts last year and fitted some springs from a GB270 i managed to find cheap, but i went cheap and didn't bother replacing the top mounts (top hats?) at the same time, now i'm getting low speed knock, which from what i understand is likely to be caused by this. I guess it's telling that they've covered (probably) 100k as i don't have documentation stating they've been replaced. Anywho, I'm thinking either buy the matching KYB top mounts and fit it all, or go with a new set of coilovers from Meister/BC. The first is the cheaper option, but, i don't have ride height adjustability and i wouldn't mind shaving off another cm or 2 and having it all levelled. Currently it sits ever so slightly higher in the rear. That said, i wouldn't really want it too much stiffer than it is now. What do you guys think? I'll likely be doing droplinks and maybe ARBs at the same time(ish)
  9. I replaced all struts on mine last year, managed to find a set of KYB Excel G shocks someone had bought before selling the car so got them cheaper, but they are good! That being said, change the top mounts on them at the same time, i didn't and now they are beginning to make noise so i have to take it all off and rebuild them again! I'm considering the KYB tops too, since the struts are good. Food for thought...
  10. Hi everyone, I’m brand new 😊

  11. Gearbox rebuild

  13. What have you done to your Subaru today ?

    Got cold and wet, but re-fitted my modified Rallyarmour flaps, with a slightly different position and angle, to suit my spacers and tyres. 😁 Just need to wash her now!
  14. switch looks likley to be for rear fog light (not required in japan so they are fitted when imported) but short of pressing it and see what happens no way to be 100% sure, second one is a flare, take it out the car because its illegal in the uk. Just leave it somewhere safe at home.
  15. Found a GReddy full auto timer under steering, quite pleased! Then found a couple of other things and I'm not sure what they are.. Anyone have any ideas? Pictures attached..
  16. Need advise on 64 wrx sti.

    As promised. 😊 And close ups of the wheels, I've had a slightly larger tire fitted (from 245/40 to 235/45) and it fills the arch nicely, but, I'm in the process of modifying my rear mud flaps as they rub slightly due to the stupid design of the bracket having protruding bolts instead of a recessed thread. 🤔

  20. What have you done to your Subaru today ?

    It's one of those that will be hard to tell. My track day was cancelled due to weather so I wasn't able to test it fully. Rebooked for 18th January.

  28. Need advise on 64 wrx sti.

    The head unit was already fitted when I bought her, but there's no sign that it wasn't factory fitted. I'll sort a pic when I get chance. The spacers bring the wheels out just about perfect and there's no 'noticeable' difference in the drive or response.
