Keep in mind, Sinister, that the GB discount was only $10. A nice gesture by RallySport, to be sure, but if you can afford the old GB $125 price you can probably afford the $135 non-GB price. (Although shipping might tack a bit more on there, I dunno.)

I'll be putting mine in tomorrow, I'm curious to see how it affects NVH. My rear diff (Cusco RS @ 100% lockup) is rather obnoxious as is.

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.
OH i have a V5 RA with the r180!!! wich version do you have?

here's a pic of my rear diff. bushings.. so tell me if is the same as yours and this brace won't fit right.

I got mine installed today. By the Olsen Rule of Modifications, it of course took about 3x as long as I expected it to, because even the simplest jobs must have something go wrong. In this case, the passenger side stud wanted to back out of the diff with the nut. Not a huge deal, and if it had been the driver side one there wouldn't have been any issues at all. But, due to the shape of the spare tire well, there's not enough room to get the passenger side stud all the way out. The driver side one I think I could have unscrewed and removed, but not the passenger side one. (You can see that in elpapi's picture with the red circles.) Actually, if I had scraped off the undercoating there that might have done the trick, as it was pretty close, but I didn't do think of that at the time. Anyway, I ended up unscrewing the stud essentially all the way, then grabbing the now-exposed unthreaded portion of the stud with a set of vice grips so I could unscrew the nut from the stud. I then used the two nuts that came with the brace to double-nut the stud to screw it back in, then installed the brace. Whew!

There is definitely plenty of play to be taken out of the mount back there. I had the car up on a lift, and used a screw jack under the diff as I was doing this, and could probably move the diff up and down at least 1/4", and probably more than that. Granted, that was with the nuts removed from the studs, but even with them installed and tightened down I'm sure there's some movement possible. The studs aren't a particularly tight fit in the center of the bushing, and the bushings themselves are soft (and old).

As you can see, the OEM bushings sit inside raised lips extending out from the face of the subframe, and the brace is designed to fit over those lips. I measured the diameter of one of those and got right about 61mm. I measured the height of the opening of the back side of the brace and got about the same 61mm, so it's a damn tight fit. Initially the brace didn't want to fit on there, so I put it in place, and then used the nuts on the studs to press it into position. Even with those two nuts tightened all the way down, the two bushing arms weren't flush with the subframe - there was probably a 1/8" or larger gap. Installing the hardware and tightening them down obviously took care of that. I'm curious, though, if the others who have installed this already found it they were able to immediately position it all the way flush against the subframe, or if they found it was a tight fit, too.

I had a short drive home from the shop, and didn't really romp on it are try any hard, high RPM shifts, so I can't say I noticed much difference yet. NVH didn't seem horrible, which is good.

there was a little gap until I tightened it down.
but the install still went without problem. Sorry for your bad luck. Usually I'm the guy writing the sad story about a five minute install taking three days.

Same here

My only difficulty was dealing with my diffuser, other than that it went just perfect.

I think theres a big one in the interior/exterior forum on the 06/07 stock diffuser and installing it on older models.

Under hard acceleration and letting go of the gas, do you still get any thunk/clunk?

Will this support bracket fix the "trailor hitching" I'm getting? The name is pretty self explanitory, but in case anyone doesn't know, I mean the galloping jerky drivetrain slop you get when you're on and off load.

Also, did how much NHV did these add?

I still get some trailer hitching if I'm not smooth on the gas while trying to creep along at low RPMs. I didn't find that NVH was too bad. I already had the "clunk killer" bushings at the front of the rear crossmember, and Group N drivetrain mounts - I would say that stuff caused more noticeable increase in NVH than this mount did.

Any of these drive train bushings/mounts will always help get rid of the slop or clunking, but once you stop one clunk, another will appear somewhere else. So I cannot say for sure if this will solver your problem, but I can say that it should help.

I have not installed these yet on my personal car so I cannot comment on the NHV, however a local customer of ours did and I was able to ride in his car and I could not notice a increase in NHV.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Thanks
Rick

They are only designed to work on the 1993-1996 JDM GC8 and 1339-1995 USDM Impreza AWD.

If you can post a image of your rear diff, this would help. Reason is that these where specific for the V1-V3 WRX/ 1993-1996 Impreza L, I know that the FXT shares allot of similar parts with the GD WRX, so that would probably be the one you need.

Not my rear but a Forester diff, you can see that there isn't the two additional holes like the STI, in fact the bushings themselves are different and much softer.

This is the GD WRX/STi



This is early WRX right here


I currently run one of these on my GC, but dont have a FXT here. If you can let me know the bolt spacing between the 2 holes in the subframe, the distance between the diff bolts and the sub frame bolts, this way I can measure them on my GC and see if it might cross over. Only thing I am worried about is that beatrush is not listing it to fit on any car other then 91-94 Legacy, and 92-96 Impreza.
