08 wrx sideskirt replicas can be found on eBay
And they don't make replicas of the rear skirt/apron but you can either get it from the dealer of check the part out thread for them.
Also, on eBay their is a front lip similar to the one molded on the premium bumper for cheap.

I need moar low. Its sad how i want to go lower when my front bumper hits the ground driving almost anywhere i drive Unless i go 15mph over the bumps which i do when i don't have a doucher tailing gating me.

Finally just installed Rallitek rear anti-roll bar. 19mm with the HD endlinks. I have a bad back so it was pretty damn painfull, but after a few hours I was done. Going to take a test drive now, will get some pics later.

Next is the front 22 mm with Rallitek endlinks.. I've had them laying around since June or so. Front might be getting done by a local shop with a lift though.

You will be very happy with the results. I guess if you don't have jack stands/ a jack then having a shop install it will be nice. Hope your back gets better so you can feel the full effect of your new goodies!

I am planning on lowering my 2010 2.5 and I know that on some subarus that have self leveling shocks in the rear. I have looked and can't seem to find any place that says that the 2010 Impreza 2.5i has this? Is it correct that it does not come equip with these shocks or does it? thanks!

Hey I was wondering if anyone had a link for the sideskirts and maybe a product number for the rear bumper... I'm gonna buy the parts on my own and have the body shop fix it and try to work the rear bumper and maybe some skirts into the mix

Yea I bought 9ft garagedoor sealer. 3m double sided outdoor tape and some binder clips. Best part is its very soft so it bends if it scraps the ground and kinda of Protects the bottom of your bumper from scrapes

Its not being cheap its being cost effective. Personally I think front lips are way over priced.

Thanks but my back is FUBAR for life. On a happier note, I have a new car! Well, not really, but it handles like a new car. Best way I can describe it is that I can really lean on the rear end in an aggressive turn or long 70 mph sweeper. It's really an amazing difference.

I guess I installed it correctly- all works and sounds perfect (silent). I had to perform an emergency lane change going about 60 mph in 4th gear up a twisty hill road in the dark to avoid a giant possum directly in the middle of my lane. I was breaking and turning as hard as I could at the same time and tires didn't screech, made more of a low rumbling sound, and I popped right over into left lane, corrected a little.. and done. Was a good test actually.

I didn't even use jackstands- I backed my car out over a dropoff on my yard and put down a tarp and a couple towels to lay on.. Had ok access, but was a pain. Front is harder because of that brace and shape of front of car.. Shop wanted $170 for front (labor), $140 for rear. I just saved myself $140 doing rear myself, maybe I'll let them do front. Seems a little too much tho. with a lift and proper tools, I could get it done in an hour I bet, maybe less.

No problem. Honestly if you have the time to do the front just do it. It's honestly not that hard it just takes a little time positioning the bar through the area it rests in and lining up the endlinks but other than that its pretty straight forward.

Yeah my uncle Scotty up the road has a huge Harley shop- I could use the floor to properly jack up car and do it right (I have gravel driveway, no garage). It would save some $$. I'm wondering about the suspension hanging down making it impossible to connect ends in front though. Not sure how that's gonna work... and that 14 bolt brace, etc. Lotsa work if I end up taking it to a shop anyway. I dunno.

edt- Vid of that road test drove the RSB on.. Great hill climb twisty road.

Cool vid, car sounds nice. What exhaust do you have again?

Here's a vid I did a few weeks back. Testing out the GoPro.
