Default Subaru STI How-To Installation Catalog for the GR Chassis

*****************************************
Admin note:
With the introduction of the 2008 model came a totally redesigned body style. For those not familiar with Subaru, the previous 2004-2007 generation is referenced by the GD chassis code while the 2008+ generation is referenced by the GR chassis code.
*****************************************

Please visit the original How-To Catalog for other useful install tips/tricks/services that may cover all model years.

This is a collection of GR specific (or applicable) How-To threads.

Please reply to this thread if you create or find a how-to thread that is specific to the GR 08+ (or of course is directly applicable). Mods also feel free to edit as needed. I'll do my best to keep it up to date.

Hey, I wanted to give back...Here is a link to a blog I made for
How to install Cusco ZERO 2E w/ Econ coil overs for the 08.
Couldn't find the econ install anywhere. Don't know if it's worthy to include here...

Re: the White Line Steering Rack Bushes: I have just installed these and intially tried to fit them while the car was on ramps. With the car on ramps I could not get enough space between the steering rack and the mounts to remove/fit the main bushes due to the rack being loaded by the wheels (right hand side was the main issue). Ended up raising the car on stands instead, which allowed more movement in the rack (wheels are then hanging free) and therefore more space can be found between the rack and mounts. Hope this saves sometime for others, or maybe it was just something that affected me. Once this was sorted the install was straight forward.

Here is the How-To I wrote for integrating the factory AUX connector into an aftermarket deck.

ugh...I'm at work and can't get the link to work...I'll post laster.

if you search for GR aux under the How-To section it will come up.

EDIT: Link: https://www.iwsti.com/forums/how-inst...-headunit.html
