Default Front "U-Subframe": anyone taken measurements for the pick-up points?

I have lost access to a truly square table to measure on, for the foreseeable future. I was wondering if anyone had measurements for the 02-07 Impreza/WRX pick up points?

I want to use this as my next welding project. I thought about getting the tubing I will use for the bolt sleeves, weld up the bases, lay them out, measure it up on the OE sub frame, tack it up... test, tweak, test repeat.. etc.

Just checkin' to see if there was a great starting point.

Thanks!
Rob

I think this would be the PERFECT welding practice project. Great for learning all types of welding techniques.

Especially since my front frame rails are tweaked ever so slightly that if they pull any more it will 99% chance over pull, I'd rather make a 1-off piece to shore it up.

If I had access to a TIG I would learn to TIG & do it in ALuminum.

Yes, Subaru has. Look in the service manual for datum points to see if it has all the ones you would be interested in.

^^ gtasti....

with all due respect did you even READ what I said?

I want to use this as a welding project.

$600 shipped is "not that expensive at all"..... what company do you work for? I apparently need to move to Ontario.. because $600 here in Tx is 1/2 a months rent & nearly 2 electric payments this time of year.

The "therapy" of a welding project is priceless.

some people just don't "get" DIY... <sigh>

Missed this...

thank you SOOO much for using my post to dodge the NASIOC vendor rules. WTF!!!!

You cannot advertise projects for $$ gain without being a Vendor, Goofus.

I started to ask about your plot/pick up points, but I want nothing to do this this...

step out... bu-bye.
