Front left is all apart. Also got a tracking number for the new coilover mounts from fortune auto! I'm glad it didn't take two weeks to get them out like they first said. Now I have a fighting chance to get this thing back together in time for the first race! Since all I can do is wait for the new front mounts to arrive before putting everything back together, I may as well get cuttin' and flarin'

No! I think he was on one of the first episodes of tosh.0 I watched. Now that's all I'm gonna be thinking about while working on my car

I got my parts from Fortune Auto quicker than expected, so I'm now officially 5x114.3! Had some issues along the way, and still have some to sort out but the new knuckles are in along with the extended studs. I had an issue with the front right hub fitting on to the axle so I took a look at the splines and saw this.


Right along the edge of the shadow some of the splines are flattened/crushed You would seriously have to try and do this. I have no idea how it happened. Of course these are the knuckles I got from the asshole that won't reply to my messages on NASIOC. I broke out a file and went to work. After about 30 minutes of filing and testing, the hub finally slid on to the axle. Phew, major headache avoided. Bolted everything else on and was ready to mount the coilovers. The lower front mounts for 05-07 STi's are quite a bit different than the 04. I tried using the same ride height I used last season and the shock body is smashing in to the axle boot. I'm hoping the holes are just positioned higher on the mount compared to the old ones. That's where I stopped, as I was getting frustrated Just need to raise the ride height some and the hub swap will be complete!

I ran into the same ride height difference when switching from v3 to v4. Thankfully, I noticed it before hand and was able to take some measurements and get it pretty damn close before it went on the car. Glad to hear it's all on the cat now.

Have you finished cutting yet?

Yeah I should have measured. I compared them side by side to see the difference but didn't notice the fact that they would change my ride height. Oh well, no big deal. Haven't even started cutting yet! I got lazy over the weekend
