2002 wrx wagon

Default installed whiteline / super pro front and rear poly endlink bushings on my wrx wagon

I bought front and rear whiteline(rebadged super pro) polyurethane endlink bushings for my wrx wagon off ebay. They were auctioned by renick subaru and I got them for 9 dollars each, and since they were local I didn't have to pay for shipping.

I figured for 18 dollars why not? plus its alot cheaper than buying aftermarket ones. I'm a big believer in bang for the buck.

The install was pretty straight foward. I followed the instructions off scoobymods, and didn't have a vise, or large enough sockets so I used a channel lock wrench to get the stock bushings out. I found that the bushings were easier to get out if you sprayed some wd40 on them. The rears were harder to get out than the front.

Since I didnt have a press, and couldn't get the new bushings into the endlinks(tried for some time), I used a razor blade to cut the bushings in half down the middle(so they look like the kartboy endlink bushings that they used to sell). That made the install extremely easy since they slid right in(the smaller bushing in the front endlink didnt needed to be sliced up since you can force them in by hand). I'm not sure if that will affect performance or durability but for 18 dollars I don't really care

I haven't really put any miles on my car since the install but I will post up a review later on.

renick is also auctioning off front control arm bushings(the bushing inside the whiteline alk) for 15 dollars...i thought about getting that but im sure the install would be nearly impossible without the right tools.
