You can't adjust the rears without a rear camber kit. You can adjust the toe but thats it. Have looked at the rear suspension with my mechanic friend many times, you can get a camber kit for $200-300ish

Bolts aren't going to work in the rear. It's not designed that way.

One route is an adjustable lower control arm.

Here's a stock arm next to a Cusco adjustable arm.



The Cusco has threaded section near the bottom. This adjusts the overall length of the arm which effects camber.

LCA's are the most effective for camber adjustment. Whiteline has a set of bushings that can adjust rear camber. But the range is less and they're harder to adjust.

Any of you guys run a trailer on your Subaru?

Where do you tap into for power to the trailer wiring out the trunk?

Thanks, I get a lot of laughs from the plate haha. I am still a little on the fence about the color. Going to think about it for a week or two. I might crack them open again and black out the projector and the corners and do the Morimoto xBALED angel eyes. Then Ill still have a little pinstripe of the yellowish color of the led to make it a little less wild looking. Thoughts?

Idk I like the headlights... but maybe that's because yellow is one of my favorite colors.... Although they do look out of place on your car. Also were did you get your Nitto Neogens from I can't find them anywhere. Apparently they are designed for lowered cars so that kind of sparked my interest.

Neo Gens are definitely a popular tire for stretching. I got the set I have on now from a buddy who was swapping on some new rubber after powdercoating his wheels. I usually buy tires from discounttiredirect.com They have pretty good prices on most tires.

Just the ends of the lip so it sits flush with the bumper.

I actually have the bayson r sti v limited lip. It does require trimming on the ends but nothing too bad. Definitely worth it for the price. I'll post some close ups of it tomorrow along with pics of the tire stretch. I have 18x8.75 +35 offset with 215/40 on there.

I like your car OBS10. I too think maybe a different route on the headlight shrouds may be better suited.

That's crazy low for NY. You must live in a nice part of LI haha. I'm riding on Swifts and I still get scared when I see potholes.

Love the plate. I was gonna get YNOTRBO but I got some bogus parking tickets and decided to wait. Being broke is no joke.

NOBOOST, TURBLOWN, 2PTSLOW...a few I've considered.
