SlowScoobie, love it.

Attempted my coil-over install today. Could only get the front 19mm camber bolt to move 1/4 turn, even with a breaker-bar/3ft. pipe extension. PB blasted it as well. Will try again with an electric impact.

Also, does anyone know a company that makes the exact front lower control REAR bushing? Noticed today both of them on my car are shot. Cracking pretty bad. I know Whiteline is a company but not sure which bushing it is in the pictures. It is definately a vertical bushing when looking at the lower control arm. Thanks!

Check on Whitelines website. I'm pretty positive they have every suspension aspect covered for our car. See if you can contact them.

Well thats half the battle right there. The fact that you got it to move means it should of came out. The electric impact should take it off, I used the harbor freight impact(got it for $30 bucks)to take off my axle nuts. Your car has over 150k miles you should expect some hiccups. My car had less than 30K when I swapped in the coilovers and I had to cut off the studs.

Outback... thank you as well. Search Whiteline.com for our model cars and found W53353

http://www.whiteline.com.au/product_..._number=W53353

Pretty sure that is it judging by the picture of the bushing and the description. Now off to find a DIY on replacing these suckers because nothing goes easy!

So far so good!! I put the new donut gasket on and there seems to be no leaks so far, the gasket didn't go in the greatest it was a tight fit on the existing pipe I cleaned it the best I could but there was still a little rust

Thats good. Sounds like your old gasket had been worn down.

Installed Rallitek skidplate. Definately a nice product, really nice skidplate. Except, they sent my 4 wrong washers (Rallitek---you only needed to supply 6 washers an 6 bolts... c'mon!) and the rear tabs were a PITA to line up. That skidplate is on for good!

Now, please someone buy my brand new coil-overs so I don't have to try installing them again and make my winter/daily not practical!

Mine aren't long enough because of the heavy duty flange is there anyway to get longer ones

Not picture worthy.... ha. I'll take some next week.

Because its just a daily. Not dumping alot of money into it.

Already have my Audi as a show car/project and a 1991 black/black Mercedes 420SEL with 26k miles on it--- aka garage queen.

So yes, Subaru budget was race lands and must say, they look way nicer than I was expecting. 2 year warranty is sweet too.
