Any of you guys with 08+ WRX or STis, let me know you're interested in some Whiteline steering rack bushings. I picked some up in a big package deal of a bunch of random stuff, didnt realize they were the wrong part # for my car.

I really need to start clearing out my garage of all this random **** I've got. So, if anybody wants some stock STi struts, springs, or front seats....hit me up.

I knew how it worked

Just figured the V-brace would have been good also, but people claim it isn't i was assuming where it connects on the bottom isn't a good stabilization point. Which is why the X would be better cause it connects to better frame points.

On a side note, Subaru called, bull**** of news. They are claiming i got my car back after a NEW short block, installed mods, and blew it up in 500 miles. Then proceeded to tell me that he wasn't saying I'm a lair when i said i didn't mod my car. Then claims his data doesn't lie and from what he could tell of the billion cars he looked at he says it looks a lot like i modded it and blew it up. Needless to say that conversation got heated....a lot....my phone was about to be across the parking lot and i would have been in my car to discuss this in person. So he said this is a "good faith" repair and i will not get another one. So in 500 miles i guess i have to either spend a bunch of money and rebuild my own motor, sell the car now, or contact a local news station and tell them all about the "Subaru love" that I've been dealt...... ... but i get my car back today....on a side note

He also said that the combustion in the cylinder is directional?!?!!? Ok i agree. it is a little directional, not enough to really say the words directional, so he claimed that my valves would not have took damage. I mean the ****ing flame travels in the path of least resistance....which is where the piston is moving cause the piston gives....come the **** on Subaru

How much for the bushings? I might be interested (unless they're already installed on my car... can't tell).

And I'll be heading to the auto show tomorrow with my gf in my STI, and a buddy and his gf in his G35.

Wife and I rode up to the Auto Show. I will say it was better than last years, but not spectacular. Not a bad night out on a bike either.

Here is the file for the pics we took.
