Thanks for the info, I'd be interested to hear what the springs are like with some upgraded struts. I'm hoping to run GR-2s and Group-N mounts with these springs. As of right now I'm just going to get the springs to get rid of the terrible front wheel gap. Your wagon looks badass by the way, I really like the STi wheels and lugs nuts.

So, I need to figure out how to get more camber in the front. I have my camber plates maxed out negative, as well as the oem camber bolt, but it's not quite enough. I'm betting I only have about -1 degree at most up front.

Take it to an alignment shop. I have camber plates and the oem camberbolt as well and I was able to achieve -2.2.

Not the best shot of the camber, but you get the picture.

Yeah I would be curios to see how the car handles with upgraded struts as well. I agree with you on that horrible wheel gap. My lug nuts are Works in case you were wondering. Thanks for the compliments. Keep us posted.

I guess I should clarify. I'm not a complete noob to alignments, so I have some ideas of what I'm doing. Anyway, I've only got about 1/4" between tire and coil in the front. My oem camber bolt is maxed out negative, as are the plates.

I'll head back to the shop and see what the numbers are now, but I'm guessing around 1.7. Fortunately it only costs me $4/hr to use the shop depending on the Bay. Installing the coils during a heavy rainstorm, no problem lol.

What coilover/ top hats were you running? If you can't get any more djustment out of them you may want to look for an aftermarket top hat with longer slots for negative camber adjustment

That's kind of what I was thinking. I'll probably go with different wheels/coils here in a few months. This isn't a long term set.

Hey guys,

What front lip is everyone running on their GD wagons? Looking for a lip for my car, but dunno which direction to go. Don't wanna break the bank either on just a lip.

Anyone install ARC winglets on the stock bumper before with no lip?
