I apologize for the asshat statement...There is a forum for reviewing vendors and if you have something to say, type it there and bump it every day if you like. If you have some personal issues with perrin, then PM or Email them to work it out.

They have provided this thread as a service to us with their products. Due to my satisfaction I felt I should chime in. My point being that if you have something that you would like to bring to the attention of the public, post it in the vendor review. But give every detail of the transaction and when/why problems becan to occur. Otherwise keep it between the two of you

Correct. Plus the fact that Jeff Perrin is one of the most intelligent AND nice guys I have ever met. Jeff and others have been a great help in building my wrx.
Lots of Perrin stuff on it. Back to topic.

Out.

WRXSHAGGY: Well yes and no. H&R Germany produces those springs for us to OUR specifications. The H&R retail PT# is completely different from ours (excluding diameter). We are then able to offer the best possible TUNERSPORT™ spring for the WRX. By utilizing their advanced facility, steel, etc. we have a completely sag free, block tested, high performance street spring set.

Santofontana: The simplest way to answer your question is that our springs are progressive rate. The first .75" past loaded height is 15% softer than stock to improve freeway ride on plus sized wheel fitments. The max. increase over stock is 45% at full damper compression. This allows a very compliant street spring with the sporty characteristics required for light autocrossing and spirited back road driving. Hope that helps. If not let us know!

Gfunk720: Thank You!

To piggy back on this question... I am planning on getting a Deadbolt TD05 16g Monster P&P to replace my stocker. Turbo Inlet hose will be compatible with both units, right?

Thanks.

Default Deadbolt turbos....

fit just fine with the inlet hose and the hose will produce additional HP over the stock flimsy plastic one. This is true for both the 16 and 18G versions. Hope that helps and thanks for asking!

WRXSHAGGY: Good question. All our products are warrantied for any type of failure. All of our exhaust systems are either 304 or 321 stainless steel which will NOT rust. The swaybars are 4130 chromoly steel, powdercoated to prevent rust. Any other 'metal' items are aluminum which again won't rust. Hope that helps. If a product fails during the warranty period for any reason contact us for a replacement. Thanks for asking.

Thank you for asking. This problem is EXTRMELY rare. The 1/2" flanges and TIG welding all but eliminate the possibility. We have had (3) total (not including yours) in the past 3 1/2 years that have ever had a problem. Two out of the three were traced back to customer mistakes by not re-mounting the turbo support bracket. Thereby the entire uppipe/turob/downpipe and a portion of the exhaust were all supported by the welds on the up-pipe. Regardless, all three were warrantied for the customers. Call our offices 503-643-4677 talk to tech support and they can issue an RMA# for the part and give you specific instructions how to return it. We would be happy to help just give us an opportunity.

I am the proud owner of Perrin rails, rear sway, endlinks, CAI, Wilwood brake kit and SS. The products are outstanding; I commend your company.

On the 2 occasions that I have had to call Adam / Jeff for install questions, they have been very professional and helpful. Johnny on the spot, even See fuel rail thread from two years ago.

I would love you guys to address the question posed about the Perrin rails utilizing a JDM v8 intake manifold, though; I am installing one soon. Thanks for the great service to the community!

I really appreciate your time, I know you guys stay busy, and i feel that you have gone out of your way to help. Its this kind of customer service that keeps customers comming back. As long as Perrin carries the product that I need for my car, thats where I'll be shopping.

I can tell you... they will work, but you need to make a bracket. I have perrin rails on my V8 JDM manifold, and it was a lot of work. When you get the manifold and lay it down next to the rails, you'll see what you have to do - PM me if you'd like, I can take some pics.

what kind of grease do you suggest be used with your swaybars? my perrin rear bar is a bit clunky lately and i want to get it greased up before it gets too cold out .. i have the 1st gen bar and you guys send the collars which helped with the walking .. is there a similar fix for the early fronts?

Perrin, I have your rear antisway bar and endlinks for my 2004 WRX. Let me first start off by saying AMAZING! The endlinks are terrific piece of engineering good enough to be art and the swaybar is really sturdily mounted with your provided upgraded mounts. My only 'problem' is that the swaybar squeeks in it's mounts where it pivots, that is not at the end links but where the bar contacts the bushings supplied in the kit. I seem to have to about every 3 months or so go under the car and remove the bushing and I re-lube it with some Valvoline sythetic wheel bearing grease. Any suggestions on how to alleviate this problem will be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Default Thanks folks...

ronaldwrx & Jay25rs: We recommend Energy Suspension PT# 9.11104. This Formula 5 Prelube is the ideal choice for lubricating the bushings included in the kit. (This is the same grease we have pre-packed in your kit.) Follow the instructions and you should not have to relube the bar. You might try using a more liberal amount of the grease during the application to prevent leaks. Also, reducing use of high-pressure automatic car washes will also help. In states of the union where the roads are routinely salted you will have to relube the bar seasonally.

Finally, you can get bar clamps for the earlier front bar as well.

As always thanks for the questions and concerns. If we can help further please let us know!

Uh, you can count two for a PITA install because of the BOC return coupling. The inlet for the turbo went on butter smooth, but I'm working on an hour and a half trying to get the bov hose reattached!!! I am very frustrated to say the least. Any suggestions on getting this damn thing reattached??
Thanks!

Angry

Three words... turbo inlet tube.... I would have to say that this is that most bull honkey piece of pain in the rear end thing to install. My up pipe on my WRX was not this bad. I am probably the most angry person in the world right now. I dont have any clue how this could be easy for some one to install... Please someone tell me that I'm not crazy and the BOV return tube is a PITA to get hooked up...

A few people have had install problems with the Perrin Positive Steering Response System. Some batch's were missmatched and the instructions were not clear. The main problem was not design (Jeff Perrin) but with Adam Taft and customer service. The instructions were not very clear.
