You beat me to it haha! I hate the torque solution rear diff carrier inserts i have. Not because of quality, but because it seems half assed. I too had the idea of doing both right sides.
I have on order the Group N Trailing Arm Bushings. The Group N install of the lower bushing on the hub assembly looks tough and may do a split delrin bushing there.
Yes the rear side trailing link bushings on the rear hubs is a challenge to remove, attempted it before very limited space, back then when I was using superpro bushings, just did the trailing link front bushings:

Finally got a hold of these JDM AC Center Vents with Piano Black Trim...Bye silver trim...to match my old JDM AC Side Vents in Piano Black trim:





To remove: The vent has four tabs in the back and the trim surround has two tabs top/bottom to pop out.





To install the new trim, just do the reverse steps.










Piano Black Trim for AC/Defroster buttons:

Did not get a chance yet to weigh the S209 wheels yet. I think it is about 24-25 lbs. each wheel. The dunlops weighs about 29 lbs(from tirerack).

S209 + JDM Subaru Power Folding Side View Mirrors:





I also purchased the JDM mirror switch and JDM Auto fold module to complete the kit:





Warning: Not an easy install on 2017+ WRX/STi's due to subaru revised/rewired the door side mirror connector to receive the Blind Spot Monitor function on the mirror lens. I think 2015-2016 Model years should be ok with this mod, just re-pinning only on the mirror side connectors. Next, you need to make room for the JDM mirror switch in the driver side window switch trim.

This is the BSM wiring diagram on the side mirror door harness/connector: You need to rewire the Light green wire/Black wire Pin#2 and #6 (Connector D5/D15) and connect/tap to the door harness/plug pin#25 & #24(D83/D84) respectively. For the driver side plug D84, light green wire(remove from D84 pin#14 and tap/connects to pin#25 (Black with red stripe wire) and the black wire(D15 pin#6), this wire needs to be cut from the mirror plug and ran a new wire through the door harness grommet(PITA) and tap to pin#24 of D84(Blue with red stripe). For passenger side same procedure light green wire re-pin from pin#14(D83) to pin#25 (was left blank from the factory), the black wire(D5 pin#6) same as the driver side, cut and ran a new wire through the door grommet, add a female pin and plug to connector (D83 pin slot#24).



Back of D83 Plug:



Back of D84 Plug (at this shot, wires on the top row of starting from left to right pin#23-#24-#25, 26,27,28) light green wire pulled from slot#14.



D15 door plug(driver side):



D5 door plug(front passenger door):



Now we are done with the car side wiring, the next step, re-pin the 12-pin JDM mirror harness plug to the USDM 10-pin plug D5/D15:

Driver side mirror connector (Left is 10-pin USDM, right is the 12-pin JDM):



Safety pin to remove the pins (push up the tab, pull the pin, then transfer to the USDM 10-pin):







Repeat for the passenger side, note passenger side mirror connector D5 is flipped.

Now time to hack my piano black driver side window switch trim (I was extra careful, this is a $160+ switch panel) to fit the JDM mirror switch:



Did a practice hack on my extra driver side window panel before doing my piano black window switch trim.

Installed JDM Power Folding Side Mirror Auto Fold Module: Special thanks to SMY Performance for all my JDM power folding mirror kit parts purchase and great customer service!











Testing everything before putting the door panel back on:



My short video after install: Please note, auto fold module only works when you lock the car using the keyfob or locking the car using the door lock switch inside the car. When you start the car, it will automatically unfold.


Using the mirror switch to activate fold/unfold:
