Can one of you technical guys please explain what this inverted strut is. I thought is was the shock absorber with the coil spring on top of the suspension arms but I checked the WRX and the setup is the same so I'm confused.
Hey Bullet. I tried looking for info on inverted struts online. All I could find is that for the most part only the STi and EVO's use them and they are something either KYB or Bilstein came up with. I know this isn't what you wanted. But it's all I could find.
Quick question. Does your STi have an Oil Temp Gauge. Thanks.
I think you are right. I have sort of worked out that it is the shock absorber (I don't know what you guys call it) that is mounted upside down. The thing is why would it be stronger or better this way?
I found this site in someone elses post on this site. I still don't know how the inverted strut is any better than anything else but the is a great picture of the setup at this site. http://www.fhi.co.jp/subaru/wrxsti/index.htm
under the link saying "Proving the superiority of all wheel drive" goto the second picture in the group of three at the bottom for the picture. If you watch the video at the main page it shows the shift light in use. Pretty cool
