Default BlueScooby's 06 STI - suspension question

Also keep Iin mind I screw up all the time when I do this. So I'm not the best to take advice from

The twitch part was when i regained full rear traction as i started getting off the brakes. I hadnt really started to slide, then it stopped when i got back on the gas.

I went with bigger sways and milder springs for a more daily driver setup that retains a high body roll resistance. Its not ideal for the track but it does decent.

Default Re: BlueScooby's 06 STI - Hellas and Rally Armor

So, i figured I'd get on the band wagon here. I had wanted Hellas for a while, and also, after driving through a rather pebbly/rocky area, i decided rocks down the side of my car was bad for the paint so i got both Hellas and RA mudflaps.

Just another subaru with mudflaps and those wierd red horns...

Default Re: BlueScooby's 06 STI - Power Steering Cooler Install

After some discussion with the local subie shop, and just knowing that our PS lines go down to the PS rack nearby the the turbo/downpipe (read: HOTT), I decided to add a PS cooler. Not only does it help cool off the fluid, but it also adds a little extra capacity which is a nice side benefit. Oil degradation should be reduced with the lower operating temps and slight bump in capacity. All good things

Thanks, I'm pretty excited about it. To me, these wheels are what the OEM BBS should have been, so it will be pretty sweet to see them in gold.

Now to sell my BBS and spacers...

I would say I'll buy them but I already bought a set. Shouldn't take you too long to get rid of them. Try NASIOC.
