I have the base model and i am looking to upgrade the RSB.
All I need are the following right:

swaybar and bushing
https://www.subaruonlineparts.com/pr...oducts_id=1330

nuts and bolts for the installation
https://www.subaruonlineparts.com/pr...oducts_id=1496

endlinks
https://www.subaruonlineparts.com/pr...oducts_id=1497

These endlinks are for forester, but it is the same part number for legacy, and outback endlinks. Anybody have any idea if forester endlinks will fit the impreza?

Tell me about it. NJ has never gotten so many snow storms in one season. (That may not be factually correct)

Im ready for warm weather and the benefits it brings. Increase mpg, better weather for detailing and modding, summer fun.

Just ordered a perrin strut bar from jj patterson who is a vendor on here. I got a great deal that trumps the ebay sellers. If you want the bar, hes the man to see. So stoked about suspension mods right now.

Phoenix in two months? That's right at the start of the 4 months in a row of 100+ degree temperatures... Seriously it's pretty nice - just that sometimes you have to just move from air conditioner to air conditioner.

Haha ive lived in heat like that before. I been all over the place and I have to say pa is by far hands down my least favorite of anywhere ive ever been/lived.

Its always grey and rainy. Especially the upcoming months. The summers humidity is disgusting. The allergy levels are through the roof here. The roads are crap... I could go on and on. Yes, I am hella psyched about phoenix and running ultra high performance tires every single day of the year. Ill take a dry heat no problem. Drink water and walk around like a tan boss.

I wonder if Subarus are a rarity in places like AZ. It's not like the weather makes it easy to justify AWD....

I see alot of SoCal people on the forum. Maybe there are a lot of rich kids over there, maybe the mountains are close enough for skiers/boarders, idk.

What are peoples opinions of the tires on the stock 17's? I'm running something like 37F 35R tire pressure and the car performs great, they have really good grip in the dry, but in the rain they feel downright twitchy and the steering is still kind of vague. I put goodyear tripletreds on my dad's outback and they outperform these tires in pretty much every way that is meaningful.

Folks with a wagon with optional "add-on" rear spoiler..

Do you guys find that you get MORE or LESS dirt and debris on the hatch than with the stock small lip spoiler? I find that after even a light sprinkle, my hatch gets incredibly dirty. Just wondering how that is after you add the optional larger rear spoiler..

I have always had the larger rear spoiler straight from the dealer, and I can say that the rear of my car is ALWAYS dirty. I wash it, drive once and the rear is dirty again.

Maybe carbon buildup from the oil burning, gregorz.
My rear stays almost diesel-dirty. No spoiler.

Exactly. I drive it down the street and it looks like I was rally racing it. lol

I've always owned coupes and sedans, never a wagon. I know the shape does alot with the rear crud, but jeeze. lol The whole car will be glossy, and the rear looks like crap.

Does anyone else feel that the drivers seat on the sedan doesn't go down low enough? My 2009 imprezas seat was much lower when it was bottomed out than the seat on my '12.
