I broke the passenger side endlink just jacking up my car to put my new wheels on. I'd upgrade them even if using stock sways.

KartRacer3, I think the wrx/sti hatch wing is what I'm going to get eventually. If people are going to hate, they can just suck it and deal with looking at the pictures that I rarely post. Our wing is so sad looking that I feel it doesn't do the car justice at all.

How the heck did that happen? Were you jacking up the car ON the endlink? That shouldn't happen. I'd actually go back to Subaru with an issue like that!

if upgrading the endlinks are that important I will def purchase those with the sways. Like I said before, suspension is something I dont want to cheap out on because it completely affects the ride of the car

Go for it. The oem WRX/STI hatch spoiler is better looking and like you said, it is not as noticable or as bold as the STI spoiler on the sedans. It's for aesthetics.

I did it and it looks great without being over the top. This is probably the only time where I would put an STI spoiler on a 2.5i where it doesn't look completely out of place without other exterior mods.

Thanks for the input guys! Saving up for some new wheels, more suspension goodies, then the wing to come in the future.
Totally agree our oem spoiler sucks! Even the new fwd focus has a more aggressive rear wing lol

Why am I dumb? I was agreeing with saying this thread is helpful. You just have to weed out the negative comments to get good info. That's all.

I like the shape of the rims but not the chrome lip imho but the wing, tail lights, and rear wrx bumper with built in diffuser looks really good. Does anyone know if the 08 wrx rear bumper will fit directly with ours?
And heres a free pic to keep people happy

I just happened to park next to an Sti

For a narrow body, the full bumper should be a direct swap.

Just jacked car up normally, and correctly, to install new wheels.

After that heard this clunking coming from front passenger side. Turns out broken sway bar endlink. Yeah Subaru fixed it under warranty. It was over $200 for the part + installation.
