Unless he is getting the mounts too, on the 06s you don't have to remove the charcoal canister.jsh139 said:Remove the front subframe for the front swaybar install. It takes a little more time, but it makes it so much easier.
Also, don't overtorque the bushing brackets. The bolts only need to be tightened to like 18 ft-lbs.
The rear is alot easier. But, you'll either need a nice swivel-head socket, or remove the charcoal canister to gain access to the one bolt to remove the bushing mount.
Yea, but i remember reading about problems with their mounts fitting 06s....jsh139 said:Cobb sways come with new mounts for the rear.
So, you're saying that you don't need to remove the charcoal canister on the 06's? Or, you mean, unless you are installing the new mounts. You can get the bar on and off without removing the canister on all years, AFAIK.
+1 It took me about 45 minutes just to get that thing off. There's like 500 bolts and pop rivets to remove.LOLSTi said:Oh, and for the front subframe, I would DEFINETELY use air tools!
I just did the rear cobb sway on my 05 about an hour ago. I didn't take the canister out, I just removed the smaller rubber hose and that gave me enough room to get in there w/ an extension and get the one mount off. If you do it this way just be careful to not break the nipple off of the charcoal canister. I didn't have a universal so it was a bit tougher than if I would have had one.dailydriversti said:AFAIK you have to remove the charcoal canister on 04-05's to get one bolt on the swaybar bracket, maybe not....
Depends.Va06Sti said:what settings does everyone have their rear set on?
Why is that? Does it matter with the stock endlinks? I read somewhere that with the old C style wrx links that the suspsension should be loaded, but with the newer STi endlinks it doesn't have to be.sebtarta said:Make sure you have the tires on load....ie. ramps, or similar.
