Jeez, you don't have to yell!

Without getting coilovers, they'd hit the strut perch or come dangerously close to it. Also, the LGT has much smaller fenders than the Impreza models and would require way more massaging of the fenders. And last but not least, you can't get much camber with the stock suspension. I've heard 1.5 top but closer to 1.

I'm going to order Swift springs. Once they come in, I'll test fit the wheels again. I want to roll the fenders ahead of time. Anyone have a fender roller?

I called EFI a couple of days ago and spoke to Pete. I asked and he said they don't do that. I asked "didn't you used to rent them out?" and his response was "nope."

I think Alan used to do it and now that he's gone, they don't. I dunno, all I know is that he said they don't rent them or offer the service. I called JNA a few times and nobody answered.

Yes Pete told me the same thing when I talked to him a while back.

I'd pm JNA on here and/ or ctsubie... I'm 99% sure they still rent them, it says they do on ctsubie... I pmed them last week about some stuff and it took them a couple days to get back to me. I think they said they were having construction done so they were out of the office some days

If not heres endless's info: http://endlessdetails.com/contact.html

You know what grinds my gears? When you leave a tiny to-do list for your team when you go on vacation and you find out nothing got done while you were out. On top of that, my boss was constantly forwarding me pieces to take care of "immediately" while on vacation.

Boy am I glad I turned email off on my phone while away from the office.

....End rant...

I hear you. I left a coworker of mine a fairly simple task of obtaining then faxing some documents to another company for me when I was on vacation and since I do **** for her all the time without complaining, I figured she could take care of this for me. The following week, I return and she's all "Oh I was SO busy, I couldn't get to it" and it ****ed **** up for me with that client.

Um... they said who the owner of it was. Couldn't afford the payments or fines so he fled the country. I take it you didn't read the article you posted.

I'll cross post in here in case any of you have some input...

Ok, so I've been researching proper suspension setups for my car and figured I'd post some info up here in case any of you are in the same boat or just want something to read. I'm going off of the Legacy platform but some information may be useful for you guys.

I decided on the Swift springs. They're JDM, just like the JDM Pink springs, and very good quality. They also give quite a bit of a drop compared to other springs, yet have a very good ride quality, especially when paired with the Bilsteins. Below is a chart on spring rates, the drop data may be off a bit. Also, I'm on Bilstein struts which has different tophats so a JDM spring is more appropriate for my vehicle.

http://subiwiki.com/wiki/index.php/B..._Modifications

Stock.......=..3.5 kgf/mm F.... 5.5 kgf/mm R
Pinks..........=..4 kgf/mm F....... 6 kgf/mm R
Tein S-tech.=..4.2 kgf/mm F.... 6.0 kgf/mm R
Swifts.........=.4.25 kfg/mm F... 6.6 kgf/mm R

If lowering any more than 1", the suspension geometry will be thrown off and car may have what's called "bump steer". An FRC (front roll center) or bump steer correction kit is recommended. I'll likely go with the Whiteline kit below since it includes both and should tighten things up quite a bit.

KCA313
http://www.whiteline.com.au/product_...sans_vehicle=1




Also, the Legacy stock suspension doesn't allow for rear camber adjustment so I'll likely get the Whiteline rear camber bolts. When lowering the car, it'll actually add too much negative camber, something around -2.5* so I can get bushings which will give me back 1* and set me to -1.5*. I'm still not sure if I should get the camber bolts, or camber bushing.

KCA399
http://www.whiteline.com.au/product_...sans_vehicle=1





A few guys get adjustable lateral links but this is my daily driver and won't be a track car, so I don't feel it's necessary to replace half of the suspension components. Not to mention, the Spec.B comes with lots of upgraded suspension over the standard GT models. This isn't really an option for me right now mainly due to the cost, and the car only has 27k miles on it so I don't want to start replacing things just yet. And like I said, it's a comfortable daily driver. I have no desire to turn it into a stiff, bouncy, track car.

KTA124
http://www.whiteline.com.au/product_...sans_vehicle=1




So, to sum it up, this is pretty much my checklist:

1. Tires (Good set of tires)
2. Swift Springs (on the Rev C Bilsteins)
3. Front WL KCA313
4. Rear WL KCA399
5. (If I wanted to do what some of the other, suspension gurus get, which they think I'd be better served over the long-haul with) rear WL KTA124 and the KCA307 Rear Toe Lock bolts.
3. Performance alignment -1.0 front/-1.5 rear camber, 0* toe, 0* cross-camber.
4. And eventually, front WL KCA334 or AVO S1X03E1GV002T rear LCA bushings - when the stock ones fail.

10.5 cm hotside on a VF series turbo.... sillyness.

Nick- Did you have questions, or are you looking for approval? You don't want to run 2.5* of camber in the rear unless you have some hellaflush tires/rims.

Just posting to let you know what I'm up to. That's why I'm getting the parts. When I lower the car that much, it'll automatically be around 2.5*. I'm buying the kit to bring it back to 1.5".

just my 2 cents on this. Don't zero the toe. You want about 1/16th to 1/8" of toe for high speed stability. And about 2* of camber f+r. That's a general statement but really the only way you can dial in your camber is to measure temps across the tire.

Thanks dude. I usually just take it to Little Bear to get my alignment done. It's a little hole in the wall alignment shop but they do Porsche's, Vipers, etc. and know a ton about performance alignments. I don't know enough about it to tell them what to do but yes, I will keep it between -1.5* and -2* of camber. I think I've always had the toe set to 0 but I don't remember.

Thanks for sharing Just giving you a hard time.

Sounds like it'll be a good setup, but maybe a bit overkill for a street car. I'm just gonna put springs on the BMW and leave it alone.

Lol, wayyyy too much. They start at about $8500 and the VF700 kit is about $16,000. Probably just going to do an exhaust and tune this year, then supercharge next year.

Hit me up on Sunday if you are around
