Default Greddy lip install....

I was just wonderin, has anyone else had trouble installing the greddy gracer lip on an 02 subie? I just test fitted mine and it was to short on one side, and it's pissing me off ! please can anyone offer some feed back or answers? Do I need to cut into the bumper or something! please help anybody. Oh and it's not a replica either, I bought it from RavSpec fresh out the box.

how short was it? mines was barely too short, so the side was kind of angled to get arond the back of the bumper. You shouldnt have to cut it. Call RavSpec and see what they say.

well I would say about a 1/2 inch to short but when I forced it around the side of the bumper it put to much pressure on the back and I cant screw it in behind the fender.

I dry fitted mine and it seem to fit fine, but it's still sitting in the box.

it seems the GReddy is a case by case basis. I actually had two, and my first one fit fine, didnt notice anything wrong. Second one was too short, just like i said, but still reached.

I'd just contact the company you purchased it from first and see what they have to say.

i have plenty of experience with greddy (however, not their body pieces) and i have never been dissapointed.

maybe catchy, but completely moronic due to the fact that you don't give any reasons why you have been led to think that.

Mine was a little short too. Get someone to help you and Jack the car up. Then hold the bumper below and in front and both of you try moving it up together. Instead of doing one side then the other. It should be fine

really? lets see.... search for these...greddy bovs leak, greddy lips dont fit, greddy catch cans dont catch anything, greddy is just a weak company imo. they DO make good products, but there are more problems then not. after you've been doing this for a while you'll see. i just dont feel confident in greddy products

well lets see, my greddy catch can catches perfectly fine, that is the most ignorant accusation i've heard in a long time. You can't really have a catch can that doesn't catch as well as others, as they are all identical minus the visual looks.
