TiC Subaru Rear Diff Mount Bushings - RACE

Yo Foresta guys mutha****a! These won't fit yo' car, they is 02+ Impreza ONLY

Quit playin' n' do what tha **** I be sayin'! Please note, dis is tha race stiffness.

Is you chillaxed of tha "diff dizzle of distraction n' deflection" when you're gettin on it up in yo' Subaru, biatch? Is you horny bout mo' betta throttle response, n' a mo' connected feelin wit tha car, biatch? If so, then by all means, please continue reading.

Made ta fit tha newer generation of Impreza chassis these mounts will also fit a ****in ****load of other NEWER Subaru models. To check fo' fitment take a peep tha pics n' instructions. If yo' Subaru has tha mount wit tha bushings on tha endz then these will fit. (Except fo' tha oldschool Legacy Turbo - we know they won't fit on these).

Yo, see, tha problem is dis - tha stock bushings is just plain wimpy. First, they is made of rubber (floppy, sloppy rubber). Right back up in yo mutha****in ass. Second, they gots a void above n' below tha center bore (you know, a void, like suttin' is missin - kinda like when you're rappin' ta one of mah thugs n' you realize dat suttin' up in they head just ain't connected right yo, but you can't like figure up what's wack wit them). This floppy, sloppy, empty headednizz is fine if you're like 900 mutha****in years old, n' you drive like Grandma goin ta church up in a school unit yo, but fo' mah playas whoz ass likes ta give they Subaru a lil bit of gas on occasion they just won't do.

Yo, see, when you git on it tha stock bushin flexes too much, n' tha void up in tha bushin closes quickly causin a impact. This is tha source of dat stupidly distractin clunk. It's also inefficient. Yo ass can also be thinkin of it dis way - you're only puttin up a gangbangin' finite amount of juice ta drive tha hoopty forward. Y'all KNOW dat ****, mutha****a! Why tha heck would you want floppy, wimpy bushings soakin up a ****load of dat juice when you could be puttin it ta tha wheels?

Yo, so what's tha big-ass deal wit these?

Well, let me cook up a list:

Urethane instead of rubber
Stiffer than stock
No wack voidz

What else?

Well, since you axed, here's a gangbangin' few mo' thangs ta consider.

There is others on tha market makin replacements fo' tha bushings. Those is all one piece designs dat require a press ta install. Come on, how tha **** nuff playas gots a press chillin around up in they garage, biatch? Ours be a split design. I aint talkin' bout chicken n' gravy biatch. Trust our asses - it make yo' thuglife MUCH easier when it comes ta tha install.
Yo ass could git tha entire STi branded part wit Group N bushings yo, but tha metal portion of tha mount is tha exact same stupid-ass as what tha **** you already have on yo' car. Shiiit, dis aint no joke. Why would you pay extra ta git a part dat you already have, biatch?
NVH - Yo, we've been playin wit these fo' a while now n' straight-up haven't experienced much mo' NVH. Right back up in yo mutha****in ass. Sure, there probably is some mo' yo, but like honestly we can't straight-up tell.
Cost - you remember dem others we mentioned above, biatch? Yeah, ours cost less.

Yep. AFC church puts it on. Last year they did a free fill up. Very good people that put it on last year. Ended up attended a few services to see what they were about.

I like the wheels and tail lights! Not so crazy about the 300 extra pounds and slightly better MPGs...

Nicer gauges, info screen, leather galore, AWD, 31 mpg combined, and 465 mile driving range.

The Subaru XV Crosstrek Hybrid combines a 2.0-liter Subaru BOXER engine with a 13.4-hp electric motor that’s integrated into the Lineartronic® Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). A 100v, 13.5kw nickel-metal hydride battery is located under a revised rear floor area, and the engine uses and integrated starter/generator for the automatic start/stop feature. The compact hybrid system weighs just 209 lbs. and places the electric motor just behind the transmission and in front of continuously variable transfer clutch. With the addition of all the new features, the XV Crosstrek Hybrid weighs approximately 300 lbs. more than the gasoline engine XV Crosstrek.
Quote:
Passenger cabin room in the new XV Crosstrek Hybrid is essentially the same as in the gas model (0.7 cu. ft. difference), while the hybrid’s maximum cargo room (rear seatbacks down) measures 50.2 cu. ft., vs. 51.9 in the gas model.

I don't mind it being heavy since my CT is a really heavy car but the I'm really digging the driving range. I can only go about 300-320 miles on a full tank of gas since it's only 8 gallons. seriously who the hell puts a scooter gas tank in a car!?

*sigh* I'm really disappointed. I was hoping for at least 40 mpg. 1 mpg better than the gas version isn't impressive, and surely not worth the presumable $3,000+ premium over the gas motor.

If they'd just bring the diesel over that would be perfect for the XV and get better MPG than 31 combined.

Come to the other side, my good fellow, where vehicles weigh as feathers and fuel is plentiful for those that are light of foot!

Haha I'm not going to buy a frs for 25k when you could get a brz for almost the same although I would if the limited were 25 idk just keep waiting for something that I really want to come up. Don't know why no one makes rear wheel drive cars for 16k. Like the miata bring back the 14k original version that people can finance I don't know of anyone who would buy a miata for 28k.
