Joe, I would be very careful with SOR. There are a few people on here who have had issues with them all stemming from simple trips that turned into a bigger mess.

As for the transmission, It is tough to say. I have seen some make noise and break with 50-60k on them and some last 185k(on WRX's).

Do you need all 4 corners done?

Time is dependent on lots of things. It's always easiest on suspension with lots of droop. If you have coilovers you generally have to raise them a bunch to make the roller fit which takes time. Am I coming to you and the car already on jack stands? Those two things alone can easily add 30-45 minutes all said and done to complete the job.

In order to do a job I'm satisfied putting my name behind I'd estimate 15 minutes a corner. I did fenders for RheeRS back in the day.

Google maps says im about 2 hours away from that airport and im in Glen allen. If you plan on taking I-95 the whole way and you leave no later than 6am then you should deffinatly make it by 9:30. Earlier if you dont hit traffic but atleast you have about an hour that can be nothing but traffic and still make it.

Asked pence to change my trans fluid and also asked what fluid did they use? Answer was subaru syn. And that's what the invoice said. Couple months later asked them to sell me 4 qts os extra s and answer was they didn't use syn in garage. Who knows what was in my trans.

I service my own fluids! LOL.

Ahhh Shiot Joe. If I knew you were bringing your own stuff and saw this in time, I would have saved you the trouble. They do not allow you to bring anything. You must use all of their parts. When I worked for Pence and even now for Priority I allow the customer to bring their own parts if they desire.

had a bit of play in my pass side front end and knowing that side lca rear crush tube had a fair amt of corrosion, ordered rebuild kits and new bushings for the front, both sides.

tried for 3 hours and could not get the new bushing into the shell. front was easy. so after sleeping on it decided to at least get the car driveable and re-use the old bushing and new crush tube. Lost the rear nut! and napa does not have a replacement...me the dumbass lost the nut. will get two from the dealer TU and have a 2 bushing and shell shipped express to get car ready for next weekend.


saturday Sept 8 rx driver school and sunday race day at summit point, come on up to drive or spectate...get a ride along it is sliding around at speed.

saturday Sept. 8th CnC is at Boychiks Deli: 4024 Cox Rd, Glen Allen, VA
