i think i am pretty sure how to fix my steering wheel but just making sure...i had my shop put on steering rack bushings while i got other stuff put on and they didnt tie down the steering wheel :/ its pretty bad, so do i unbolt the 2 bolts that are easy to get to on the linkage? then try and slide that whole thing up and turn it the way i need it to then slide back down and put the bolts back in?

Bump.

I must not be looking in the right places. Does anyone know what years are interchangeable with the 11+ WRX? 05+ possibly?

08+ STi. The GD linkages won't work.

I did this swap on an ADM GH8 (MY11) WRX on the weekend, but used the LHD STi u-joint.

My steering now feels much lighter, which I wasn't really expecting - more feel and feedback yes. I'm wondering if it could be the difference in angles of the joints between the RHD and LHD parts. I don't think I messed anything up - neither the steering wheel nor wheels were able to move during the process.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Small thread bump, wondering if this could/would eliminate the deadzone I currently have in my steering?

I need to replace my linkage aswell but I am unsure which year will fit.

I have a 03 sedan so would a 04 or 05 sti one be a direct fit?

not sure if it has been mentioned yet, but a cheaper and easier way to fix this problem is perrin's "steering damper lock down"

http://perrinperformance.com/i-22342...r-subarus.html

it is in fact a cool part for under 100$

Thanks for the responses, I appreciate it. As for that steering lock down it would do me no good because my U-joints are gone and the whole linkage needs to be replaced. But if I was just looking for the solid feeling that item doesn't look too bad.

For $70 or $100, I'd rather use the factory STI part. Save some weight, save some cash (Mine was $40 shipped, IIRC). Neat part, but they're like 15 years late to the market for my '02 WRX...

I agree. You can just source it from someone parting out their STI.
