Not covered under warranty??
Ringland failure occurred at 19k miles. 15k of those miles were driven on a stock tune. I've always had misfire issues ever since I got the car, on cyl 4. Subaru has updated the software on my car at least 2-3 times. And the issue was never resolved. I did a compression test before I decided to go with a Cobb Stage 1 tune, and everything checked out, and then shortly after I installed the downpipe with a protune with 5k miles and it decided to blow. Not a tuner issue, as our local guy has tuned literally hundreds of subarus without fail.

Yes, toe was all out of wack when we installed the suspension on. The tires probably had about 3k miles on them after the suspension install. I hated them anyways, so part of me really didn't care about it. Not to mention I had a friend that had an extra set for me for practically free...

Any tips on fitment? How much camber are you running?
With stock tire size, I still rub over dips after a pretty aggressive roll and poll. Hence I ordered new suspension bits for this coming summer. (GT spec rear camber arms, toe arms, and eibach camberbolts). It's doable, but does take a decent amount of work...

There is a difference between knowledge and neglect. In this scenario, it was neglect. Coilovers were installed after I got off work late in the evening, I didn't really have much time for a alignment during that time due to work. But no excuse, should of done it sooner, but now I get to replace them since I HATE how loud they are. Not to mention, I can get a thicker tire so I don't have to run as much "stretch". I can't hardly wait to wear out this set.
