Check classifieds. I thought I saw some oems on there not too long ago.

May be easier to just buy new wheels.

Most likely... OEMs are running from 180-225. Straits are not that dire, The front and rear right just rubbed up a sidewalk, looking quite chewed up, and it's sure to irritate my ocd

But if I can find someone to let em go for less then I'm all for it.

Did the 19mm RSB this weekend. Awesomeness ensued.

Sore shoulders though, from holding my arms up under the car for so long. That allen key business sucked.

And loosening them. Total PITA with the lack of wrench space. But whatever. I could do it without jacking up the car.

Each city/state/township is different as far as your risk of a ticket, but in general, the less attention your car and your driving attract, the less of a problem tint will be. If you're pulled over, lower your windows.
It is this way in Vermont as your car will fail inspection. The work around is to get a doctors note and a subsequent tint exemption sticker.

So how did you get the nut back on without the threaded rod spinning on the bushing/bearing?

i just swapped mine out last thursday, and the threaded part did not move on removal or re-installation of the nut?
trying to add a little flavor to my rack


came up short on the paint so its on hold till this weekend or until the second can comes in. Been slowly working on my d2s retro.

the retro kit is in that box, still need to get some matchbox projectors to run in the high beam area.

The impact spins at 3600rpm, it took care of that for me just because of the speed, Same for removal. After the nut came to a stop I didn't let it continue to drive it further and just made sure the torque was good (it might be over by 5-10) so far so good after 17k

It has a provision for an hex/allen key in the end of the link bolt. Just use a hex key and a spanner.

o2 is an oxygen molecule.

If you mean '02, then this is the wrong thread, hence the title "2012 Impreza thread"

6 1/2", and check YouTube. There's a video on there showing how to remove the panels on an older Impreza, but the general steps are the same.

I hope to do mine this weekend. If so, I'll snap some photos and do a small write up.

Just a heads up to everyone on the forums here... I'm heading out. I had a good year-long run with my subie, but I've experienced some issues here and there with ground clearance and MPG, so I've decided to sell my car (and sold it! For $17k with 13,500 Miles).

Therefore, I'm going to be getting the 2014 Mazda6!

Thanks to everyone who helped me out on these forums, and good luck with everything!

Finally, I've been offering this for a while privately, but if anyone still needs a copy of the 2012 Impreza Service manual, which I purchased, contact me via e-mail (with the message body saying you want the manual) , and I'll send it to you.

My Contact E-mail:
dan@cyclopscomputers.com

Good luck, and best wishes to all.

-Dan
