I just put it on my 05 wagon and I love it. There is an increase in noise in "my" car but I think the gain in handling is worth it.
Good luck!

i heard its difficult to install but i replaced my cross member with the steering rack on it in my driveway with 2 jacks and some rope to help me haha...its sad. took me 4 hours but i got it on and ive replaced the front control arms with the sti alloy ones.

so i think the alk will be pretty easy to install. i cant wait till i get these parts ill post pics aswell

I got the Whiteline Sport ALK installed last Saturday on my Rex. It definately reduces dive and lift, especially nice when accelerating out of corners. I still get some decent lift, but I think it's also because I'm still running stock wheels and lousy tires. My local weekend subie mechanic took about 1 1/2 hours to install using a real lift. It looked relatively simple to install.........The steering bushings and camber bolts are next on my list.

side note...also had a catless uppipe installed Saturday.........woo hoo!

Pretty peices, aren't they? A couple tips for the install if you are interested. Draw your self a diagram of where the sub frame spacers go, this made it easier for me. The directions say to take off the front cross member. It will appear to get in the way but it does'nt so don't. To get the lock nut off the Transverse link, get a box end wrench on it and use a hammer to break the torque. As for the bolts that go into the body, an air wrench made short work of these for me, if you don't have one, use a breaker bar and think of something that pisses you off and they should'nt be that tough. Finally use a ton of PB Blaster and let them sit for a few minutes. Clean the area while you have everything off and use alot of grease on the new parts. Good luck! I'm sure you will enjoy this mod.
