And.. i'd like to add - get your car as high as you can if you're doing it at home.

You'll appreciate the extra room you have for your wrench, breaker bar, *bear claw or whatever you decide to use for this task.

Access to a car hoist / lift is ideal but most will be able to manage at home with patience.

Old thread but thanks to the OP since good pics and info nevar dies.























* Just kidding

Getting ready to install the race version of the Whiteline antilift kit tomorrow on an '06 WRX. From what I read the '06 does use the supplied u-brace spacers from Whiteline.


Someone posted earlier that whitelines u-brace tq specs may be too high? What are Subaru's U-brace tq specs?

Smear supplied lube all over bushing? not sure how lube will get in between bushing and antilift housing as it is very tight fit. Is lube for the metal bush?

Don't worry about a crows foot or bears claw just use a good wrench with some leverage and get "good and tight" since there is no room for tq wrench. Drink beer. Re-torque all hardware after 50 miles or so of driving. Get car re-aligned and go racing! Am i missing anything else?

Torque the U brace bolts to factory specs with the whiteline provided spacers.

Grease all metal to rubber contact, as specified in the instructions.

Use a flare nut crowfoot not a standard one, and I wouldn't use a wrench either - you'll start to round the bushing nuts when torquing them. I had 0 problems with a crowfoot and 2ft tq wrench while the front tires were sitting on ramps, about the only way you can torque it properly.

So far so good. I'll put it to the test next week at Sebring. It's a track car so NVH is not a concern whatsoever.

I ended up replacing both control arms with new OEM STI control arms. I will overhaul my stock '06 WRX aluminum arms with new bushings and set aside as spares or sell.

Drove around for a bit, re torqued everything, and then took it in for an alignment. Didn't notice anything crazy as far as added NVH. The car is definitely tighter up front. Car seams to brake flatter and STRAIGHTER!


The bushings in my '06 arms were shot with lots of street and track abuse. My car was starting to do really funny things (dancing) under heavy braking and the front wheels had noticeable fore aft movement from standing take off's that was a little concerning.

Needless to say this Whiteline Anti-lift kit has been a notable improvement.

So I have this in my 2005 WRX and I love it. Recently the car has started making a clicking noise going over bumps. I've checked and greases everything I could under the car except the alk. Has anyone had a clicking noise in their car with this? I'm thinking of switching to the Perrin one which has grease fittings built into it.

If you have aftermarket endlinks and the nuts are not torqued down or the "do not deteriorate like rubber" urethane bushing have deteriorated then the clicking can come from this.

Or check that the top hat center nut is not loose.
