well, actually, it didnt fit quite like it should.
this is probably due to the fact that the rear subframe i have is an STi type RA, and has the R180. i checked them out prettty close when out of the car, and they seemed slightly different shape, and i know that they are now.
a test fit on my RS subframe in the backyard fit perfect, but the RA subframe has its bushing holes tweaked away from eachother. i thought the subframe was bent, but looking at it closer, the bushings are different than the RS ones, and the subframe had much more contour in the areas that the subframe would hit the body. so the RA subframe is longer (front to back) and looks aot beefier. another difference is that there is no rubber in the subframe where it bolts to the body. so, in general, my subframe extends about 1ish inches further back. i had to lower the subframe to get the brace on, and had to shim the outer bolt up points of the brace so the brace wouldnt be bent when tightened up.
moral: if you have a GC RA subframe it might not fit right, but will work. its also really loud, since theres no bushings to the body from the subframe. i also dont know if there are year differences between RA subframes.
