I placed an order for a whiteline 22mm adjustable rear sway. Some people over on the 2012 impreza thread said a 24mm was too much and could overstress parts of the suspension/frame. Anyone on here test a 24mm yet?

Default save your rims!

So while parking I got a little close to the curb and heard the dreaded grinding sound, I heard a similar sound last summer when I scraped one of my low profile tire rims...

Except when I inspected the wheels, I did not see any damage...

Because what I heard was a mud flap scraping, no damage done, yet another reason to install aftermarket flaps!

By the way, where I work the streets are like Brooklyn, narrow with lots of jagged and uneven curbs (due to tree roots pushing them out of the way), so it isn't all that easy to tuck the car up to the curb without risking a little scraping...

I unfortunately heard that sound twice before installing my mud flaps.

I dread parallel parking my STI with my Volk wheels, I will sometimes angle the side mirror down to see how close my rear wheel is. I have the older style stiff Rally Armor flaps that have saved me a handful of times. :-D

Most likely since rsr haven't replied I'll be getting these, hopefully order them next month as I just paid the rest of my deposit for my wheels which should be coming next week

It may just be the way they positioned the front strut but it doesn't look like the stock mounting point at the bottom.

Lugz for an aftermarket set of rims would be m12 X 1.25 right? Thinking of picking up a set of neo chromes.
