Welcome to the family, we can't wait to see what you do to your car!
thank you all for the help, iv got a 12" sub woofer laying around that im gonna put it in it too, i will probably do everything you just said before i move on to other stuff.
-so once im done getting the basics as you listed, to make the exhaust louder, what would be the cheapest option? 2 mufflers? straight pipe, or catback?

Edit: ^ That's the frame from the video concerning the lip people want to know about it. I simply posted it.
Edit: The following is in regards to MY car.

Got my Whiteline 22mm Front and Rear Adjustable Swaybars installed.
Got my Swift Sport Springs installed.

Savannah sits prettier <3. I'm debating new wheels, or blacking out the goldies. Pictures when I wash her.

  • 2010 16mm WRX Rear Sway Bar + all hardware
  • 2010 WRX Front Struts + Springs
  • 2010 WRX Rear Springs

are now up for sale in my thread.

Pearlescent is SEXY! I'd prefer it in high gloss. That matte look doesn't pair well with that particular color IMO.

Yea. Haha, no rubbing. It ran just fine.




My question, I just got RallyArmor UR Flaps... do I really need to remove the wheels to install? I don't have ramps either... it would be happening in my driveway.

Yup. You'll need to remove the wheels. Maybe not so much on the fronts, but on the rears you'll definitely have to.

I didn't remove my wheels at all. Fronts you turn to the side. Rears are possible just takes a little more time.

If your going to drill and more securely install the rears I would think it required to them. When I did it I didn't even think about leaving them on. Needed to get the drill in there.

With the right tools no. I used a ratchet with a screwdriver bit to install them. It definitely helps to remove the wheels but you don't have to.

This. Plus it's an opportunity to look over and/or clean your suspension and other components while your wheels are off ;p

, I'm gonna start to have to check more often especially with all my poly bushings
Sidenote- anyone thinking about doing the whiteline rear subframe inserts, I'd recommend doing them while your car is on a lift. Attempting to install them while your car is on the ground with a jack is a PITA lol.

Lol I think you'd regret paying someone anything once you realize how easy they are to install.

Agreed, the only thing needed is the rubber undercoating spray.

I know it's easy, I don't have ramps, or jacks, and the car is about 1" lower due to Swift Springs now. It's much tighter at least in the back.
