Who put the red rerrin strut bar on their car? Just got mine in and it is totally touching the plastic on the wiper area. This is for the 08+ wrx and sti. Did i buy the wrong part or is youra touching too? I had to loosen and extend the bar from the mouns to dry fit and actually push kinda hard to get it back into place.

Help!

Installed the bar. After i read the instructions and loosened the allen set screws it went right in and fits perfectly.

This definitely decreased body roll and increased turn in. The difference is very noticeable! I am very very happy with my purchase. For 170 shipped, new, you cant beat it.

For anyone interested, part number pspsus055bk. Its the 08+ wrx/sti bar.

Pics to come shortly

I bought it from JJ_Patterson. Fast shipping, great price. He has more available. I dont know if he a perrin rep or what..

And yes, that part number fits perfectly. Mr. Patterson corrected my haphazard order and alls good in the hood. There is very little tolerance, but it fits great. You can get black silver or red i believe. It also came with two perrin plate frames and 2 stickers. And now i have a box if i sell the stock sway bar for the 19mm.

Ive got the suspension mod bug. This car is a million times better to drive after this bar and the rear sway.

I noticed today my oil filter was blue. I know it was black previously. Did they put the wrong filter on at my service interval i wonder?

Nice! Might need to look into this. Found a good deal on a used SPT one, but that looks better. lol

Black or Blue doesn't matter, subaru changed the filter model though both are effective at performing the same task.

If you're a hardcore black filter guy/gal you can buy the black ones on eBay still.

Me personally, I'm not concerned. It's a filter. lol

However, while I was looking at cars, I was looking at an FRS. Does the FRS/BRZ "oil filter cover" fit ours? lol Just to spruce things up a tad.

Looks like a different model, meaning it's a different size (or at least i'd assume).

I'll have to compare mine to my friends BRZ in person to see..

Has anyone used any other under hood accessories? Was planning on getting the Grimmspeed battery tie down, the Perrin oil cap and STI rad cap with cross references. As well as the Perrin stubby antenna I just ordered..

Did you go with the 2 inch or 4 inch. I've been toying with the idea of the antenna.

Has anyone looked into the Eibach Pro Kit listed for our cars? I found the link for them last night and can post it later.. Similar drop to H&R's, but a little more aggressive ride compared to the more comfortable feel of the H&R's it said. And it also appears they're available now - unlike the H&R's. Any info on this? Trying to lower the car stat now that I have wheels lined up.
