Nice setup! Although if I bought those lateral links I would have them painted, can't stand the pink

Are the lateral links and trailing arms any lighter than stock? Just wondering what the advantage is. Looks great! I REALLY want a set of RA's now.

How do you like the RA's? They aren't rebound adjustable, correct? How well are they sprung/valved then?

First of All, Sorry for the late reply guys,

Here is the Picture again for the Front Lower Brace as requested by a person who send me an email:



adamrmr:

I don't understand what you mean by "one?". The cost for the hold suspension set up is around US $5,500.

Boosted WRX:

Thank you very much. I like it really much. It feels and turn much better and not you can really feel the rear sway bar because the sway bar links are changed, got to test it out on the track again once I get a chance. May be the 29th of this month.

Rubasu:

I got it directly from Japan, the STI Trailing Arm and the Lateral link set cost about US$800

WRX Power:

Good point about the "Pink", but right now you can't really see it from the rear because the car is lowered.

god:

Actually, is a bit heavier. I'm going to weight it then I'm going to post the difference in between the weight of every suspension parts that I installed.

ravnazn:

Is really easy to bolt on the lower tie bar, don't worry.

Jaxx:

Thanks

shawrf1:

How about you come on over??? haha...

delectron:

I don't know about the rebound adjustablity, but all I know is that the suspension aren't really bouncing up and down.

wackit:

Thanks once again, the brakes is in my dream right now. I need to save up some money for it, but it is a really good advice. No I haven't replace any bushing yet except the bushing that came with the Alumimun Suspensio arm, Front & Rear Sway Bars, STI Trailing Arm Set and the STI Lateral Links set.

Robmat:

Really hope that your RA's will come sooner, so we can both discuss how to set it up.

Actually you can get the complete rear tie bar setup for US$690 at http://www.racebreed.com/sti03a.htm.

I am not trying to advertise for them, just shopping myself. Also, check out the other thread in this forum about the custom fab'd front tubular control arms for $300.

From what I can tell, the rear trailing arm kit comes in two versions. One kit comes with link arms with a bracket welded to them to use the stock sway bar link (or Whiteline), and this version is $400. The other kit has a bracket seperate from the links arm for the sway bar link, and come with it's own link, and this verison is $460.
It looks like STI-WRX is using the second version that comes withy its own sway bar links. I guess if you have already bought Whiteline sway bar links (like I have) you would go with the first version (like I am). Funny though how the pricing works out between the two versions, since the Whiteline sway bar links I bought cost $60. Ends up being the same.

Just to clarify, the prices above do not include the rear trailing arm for $200.

STI-WRX, nice set up, but I still can't get used to the STi pink color.

Thank you,

STI< I would love to see your car. I am in Hamilton.
Any chance you will be at the Solo 2 event next Sunday in Brampton?
If so I will come out and have a peek. Looking for some ideas for my virgin WRX.

Thanks
Tony
