Default 2006 WRX wagon ball joint endlink options?

What BALL JOINT front endlink options are there for the 2006 WRX GG wagon?

There are a lot of ball joint endlinks out there but are SEDAN specific only.

You can make your own with some spherical rod ends.

I know... but don't want to bother. And I don't know what to pick.

Ooo found these:

http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/sk...n+%26+Steering



Also found at rockauto

Does AC Delco suck or something? Rockauto lists them as "economy" but these are the only ball joint endlinks that fit wagon that I found.

There are these:

http://www.perrinperformance.com/sub.../front-endlink

They say it fits everything, but I would double check that there is hardware to fit a wagon arm.

Summit Racing or rodendssupply.com are good places to start.

Oh, Jeg's too.

We have those on a GC which uses the same end link as the GG Wagon.

Ok. How does the bolt to the arm fit? Because the wagon uses a smaller bolt than the sedan.

The Perrin instructions tell you to punch the holes out to fit the larger bolt

if there are 2 tabs that the link is supposed to go between on the arm...then using only one is a bad idea

ball joint endlinks arent all that anyway

It's not that big of a deal. Hole only needs to be 2mm larger in diameter.

sti control arms would be another option.
