You're always welcome to use my garage and tools. I'm out in Queen Creek by Brock and Mark if you know the area. I also don't really care about payment, I'd just like to see how its done.

i dont mind the drive out there, but we'll be figuring out how its done together. i know how to do both of these the hard way. i'd be taking off my fenders for the braces, etc.

Putting the fender braces takes 10 mins each side. Yes, it will be easier to take the fenders off to do it.

Rear subframe bolts, you are on your own for that one.


Also, for those who wants to do some frame braces in the future. You can put another set of stock braces on your original set and get the same results. It's a pretty common thing to do now if you can get ahold of a set at a junkyard or something.

The factory ones are flimsy as hell. Two is only a little less flimsy. If you want to go OEM, find some 2007 STI ones as they are much improved over other years. Or you can take your stockers and weld some 0.5" square stock to them and see very good results. SaabaruMike did this a couple of months ago and likes them a lot. Also, I've never done it, but I know it can be done without removing the fenders on a sedan fairly easily... the wagon is a bit tighter, but not impossible.

Also, what the heck is up with guys offering their tools and garage for such an easy job, but wanting something beyond a beer or some food in exchange?! I thought that's why we have a community here... to help eachother and to learn about our cars. Anyone is welcome to come over and use my stuff (with me around of course) for free. If you want me to do all the work, thats a different story, but if you just need tools and some guidence/another hand, I'm always down and I don't expect pay or whatever.

Just my 2 cents.

I'd have to look. I always rely on my arm for suspension components and torque . I'll take a look at my actual torque wrench when I get home today. I think it is, but I can't recal what it's upper limit is.

didnt know kartboy had subframe bolts..are they the same as the whiteline subframe lock bolts? if so good luck, they are known to strip out the threads if there is any dirt or grime.

dont know if theyre the same. but the instructions said to use pb blaster or something to clean out the grime. then take the bushing off and thread it in on its own a little bit then pull it out and clean it. repeat till it goes all they way in (thats what she said) and then grease it and put the whole bitch in.

Which is why I had to grind a cross threaded subframe bolt off
