MRT solid alloy drop (swaybar) links (rear) and MRT Strut Brace (front)
what a difference a little thing like this can make, the solid drop links are excellent. Let me try to explain:
First, my setup: KYB/AGX, Eibech springs, 20mm rear sway bar, front drop links (not solid).
have you ever experienced, when going into a corner fast and having to "adjust" the line you're taking, (slacking off on the turn-in) that the rear of the car feels a little wobbly? a little unsure? kind of sloppy and "loose".... (and I'm not talking about traction)well, these drop links sure fixed that up nicely. the car is SHARP now, no slop what-so-ever. steering input is flawless, change directions in a fast turn, it goes.. like a go-cart. fantastic. this was the one "issue" i had with my car, now it's fixed, i can't express how pleased i am.... oh, and they came in annodized blue so they look cool. lol.
now, the strut bar (front) ok, nice fit and finish, easy to install, i like the yellow, it matches all the stock yellow bits under the hood. although, i did chip the paint off a little, superglued it back on, no worries. performance? hard to tell, the only time i really noticed a difference was when I took a familiar VERY bumpy turn, the car felt more sure of itself, i kind of hopped skipped and jumped around the turn going way to fast and it muscled it's way through with no issue.
purchased from SubieGal at allsubaru.com (although i walked in). great service and she gave me a great discount.
