For those considering replacing their heavy stock front bumper beam with the lightweight JDM beam, now there is a better alternative. The Oswald Performance Front Bumper Beam is a direct replacement for the stock beam on your 2004 - 2007 Impreza (2002 - 2003 model is in development). It weighs approximately 6 lbs (compared to 27.75 lbs for the USDM beam and 10.5 lbs for the JDM beam) and it offers far more crash protection than the JDM beam which consists of a single steel tube. It also comes complete with a removable, red powdercoated, steel tow hook for track events or any towing needs.

Dropping over 20 lbs from the very front of the Impreza chassis has a very noticable effect on the car's handling performance. Understeer is reduced and turn-in is quicker and more precise. The car just feels more eager to change direction. Although less noticable, the weight reduction will also subtly increase the car's acceleration and decrease tire and brake wear.

For Off-Highway use only.

Installed a front beam in a customer '06. This beam with a lightweight battery drop enough weight off the nose we had to lower the front down 1/4''.

Keep up the good work.

I have a prototype ready to be tested. I just need to get the "test car" back over here to make sure everything fits perfect for the production parts. I am hoping they will be available in January.

Thanks,

Mickey

Haha, I'm glad you asked. The rear beams will be available any day now. I am just waiting to get the steel mounting brackets back from the powdercoater. Here's a picture of the Aluminum beam:



These will fit all '02 - '07 Imprezas.

Thanks,

Mickey

The Rear Bumper Beams are now available!

Impreza Lightweight Rear Bumper Beam

2002 - 2007 Impreza $275 Shipped* (9 in stock)

* Shipping to lower 48 States is included (AK, HI, and International shipping will cost extra).

Check out the website for more info and pictures or to place an order:

www.oswaldperformance.com



The Oswald Performance Rear Bumper Beam is a direct replacement for the stock beam on your 2002 - 2007 Impreza. It weighs approximately 7 lbs, compared to the 28 lb stock beam.

While the handling improvement is not quite as dramatic as replacing the front bumper beam, dropping 21 lbs from the very rear helps to further reduce the car's polar moment of inertia. This makes the car easier to rotate, allowing quicker turn-in and transitions. Of course, the weight reduction will also subtly increase the car's acceleration and maximum cornering grip while decreasing tire and brake wear.

The Oswald Performance Rear Bumper Beam consists of two Steel Mounting Brackets (powdercoated for corrosion protection), the Aluminum Beam, and four high-strength bolts to attach the Beam to the Brackets.

For Off-Highway use only.
