They exist for the GH/GR chassis already?

Bigsky posted a picture a few weeks ago...it was in a STU thread (read for STIs ) but I'm pretty sure the GR and GH rear UCA are identical. But maybe the attachment point on the GR knuckles are different. Ok so now I'm unsure...maybe it's GR only at the moment .

I wish I could be doing other bushings...stock class autox says no .

Instead I get to replace my passenger side rear diff oil seal when I have the LCA disconnected from the knuckle....been very very modestly seeping since the car was new.

Called this morning for the confirmation.

got the call at 1030AM while picking up 6 computers and 1 server in the warehouse, while talking to the guy in charge of the inventory, while talking on the phone with GTWorx, at the same time writing down the specs of another server.

Sheesh... the things I would do for this car.

Yea, weren't those around $300-$400, I can't remember exactly, but they are sexy.

Linky. I do believe the rears are the same GR to GH.

^ I think there must be some minor differences as WL only lists the GR under the application

here's a pic

Looking at the pic again, it must be GR specific because the balljoint has a stud with a nut on it. The GH has a ball joint with a cylindrical shaft that slides into a pinch joint (think lower ball joint in the front of a GD but reverse). So the difference is due to the difference in 114.3 vs 100 hubs on the GR vs GH/GE.

Well it's just a hassle to drop a car off and get a loaner and go back. Plus I don't trust dealers....they'd drain my Extra S and put crap in my diff (though I'm not going to drain the diff anyway...just jack that side up so it can't leak out that side. Plus I'll have the LCA disconnected from the hub when doing the rear shock, so removing the axle will be cake. Plus the seal is like $5.

btw, I got the call yesterday. Really just a confirmation that I was still getting the springs/shocks, address confirmation, etc. They told me that it should be soon, but they couldn't promise any specific date since they still don't have control of that. In any case, looks like it shouldn't be too long.

Now the decision: pay $60 in shipping, or just drive 45 mins up there and pay $60 in sales tax but get it a day or two earlier. Hmm....I think I'd rather let UPS have my money than the crappy state of Maryland, lol...

Hmm opposedforces shows the same part number for STI and WRX upper arms. I was just under there today installing the JDM STI lateral arms, which fit both GH and GR because the lateral and toe arms are identical. The upper arm was in fact a pinch bolt. But the service manual shows the removal of the pinch bolt for both STI and WRX, a procedure which starts with "remove the subframe..." ha

Looking back at that pic, not sure if I am seeing a nut there, I think it is a shaft with the clearance for a pinch bolt but that is just my take.

Not sure if I trust Whitelines application guide, they have listed suspension parts for the GH WRX wagon only, even though those parts fit the sedan as the suspension is identical.

BTW, don't know if this was so on the GD since I am a noob to soobs, but stock outboard lateral arm bushing in the hub is a pillow ball. The trailing arm bushings however, are gooey soft on both ends.

Good to know! For all we know that picture from whiteline might be generic and/or I'm blind. All possibilities .

hmmm- wonder if the "special" tools I have for the GD/GG trailing link bushings would work for the GR/GH??
