Default Trailing arms with poly front bushings - $20 + shipping

GONE - into the scrap metal bin due to lack of interest.

I recently installed a set of the STI pink trailing arms, so these are no longer needed. I know they'll fit any BD/BG/BK, and based on the fact they are the same length as the STI arms I'm guessing they'll fit any '93-07 Impreza/Forester as well.

I installed Powerflex poly bushings in them 5+ years ago. They seem to be in good shape, other than being grungy - not unexpected after 10s of thousands of miles. Before installing the STI trailing arms, I also installed STI front trailing arm brackets, which raise the front mounting point of the trailing arm about 1/2 - 3/4". As a result, I had to trim the bushing flanges to get the bushings to squeeze into the brackets. You can see that in the pictures. It should not impact the function of the bushings in the slightest - actually, it's probably even a good thing, removing some material to minimize bushing bind that can result from poly bushings that are too big. It's kind of hard to see in the pictures, but basically I beveled the edges of the bushings on the top, where they would be in contact with the trailing arm brackets.







I would like $20 + shipping from 22310. The arms themselves aren't anything special, so that's basically for the Powerflex bushings and the labor I exerted to swap out the bushings (not a trivial exercise).
