New brake line

I actually ended up flipping the brake line since it kinked funny the way it was

Take a break to install the new tensioner and idler that came in. Tensioner didn’t say Subaru on it and instead had a Bando label. It was made in Japan so I’m okay with it but I did laugh at the Chinese knock off where the just shaved away the engravings on their product.

After that was done start on the passenger side stuff. This time it’s easier since I didn’t the wheel bearing.

This was sufficient enough to release the tension

Had to grease it up again. Maybe because the new rubber was sticky?

The reason I have more struts than necessary is I put some “drop in” struts in a pinch a few years back. I had the OEM ones sitting around. The springs on the drop in units were alright but very hard. Notice the quantity of coils between the 2 units. To give the same ride height the cheap ones have to be harder (bigger k factor).

One of our front parking sensors took a rock into it on the highway. I figured now was the time to change it. Plus having the bumper off gave me more room to work with and less worry about “leaning” on it

The sideskirt was also a bit loose on the front. It turns out the closest clip had come out and started to “fold” over. I stuck a pair of pliers in there over night and it was enough to keep it straight until the clip got pushed in.

Most of my clips on the underside were missing. I ordered new ones

I sprayed over this part to hopefully keep some rust away

Bleed the brakes and drop the car down

Just curious, what was the cause of the sticky brake caliper, the pistons or the pins?

It was definitely the slide pin. I could still see the pistons try to move but the pin (singular) was seized solid. I returned them for a core charge.
