Yeah, didn't do specific measuring. It was 5 threads on the ITR's, and I used the little lip on the OTR's.

Sadly, the whitelines were threaded MUCH deeper than the stock ones, so I may not have had to cut much, if any, off the ITR's. The whitelines bottomed out while the stock ones stopped about 3-4 threads short.

I'll take the measurement of 5 threads on the ITRs! Thank you!

That's really good info on the Whiteline OTRs. This is the info we don't really see on here so thank you for that. Now I'll know to see how things measure up on my Superpro kit I have sitting around.

Are the stock ITRs drilled as deep as the WL but just not threaded as far? If so running a bottoming tap into them might be a solution.

So I just got in new inner tie rods that I was gonna use part number 34160AE000, and the inserts I bought off of threadtoolsupply.com do not fit (m14x1.5 to m20x1.5) so I dont think the information about all 2002-2014 wrx's using m14 threads is accurate they seem to be m16x1.5. Does anyone know which inner tie rods do use m14 threads?

it looks like 2003 inner tie rods are a different part number (34160AE010) maybe those have the m14 thread on them. Im probably gonna return the ones i bought and buy these instead.

Working on my alignment right now, and I'm a bit freaked out just HOW MUCH toe in I have.

I thought I would barely have any, but no.... I have TONS. Like 2+" worth. Good to know that I have some adjustability, but getting a little worried as I know I only had about 3" total toe adjustment combining both sides. Also means I could use the stock lock nut. Still a work in progress.

As for the WL kit vs stock, I'm honestly not sure. They're on the car now... so not gonna be able to check it. Lol

I just got back from autozone. I checked the thread size of a 2003 wrx inner tie rod and they are indeed M14x1.5. So if you want to go the no cut route and would like to use readily available thread inserts from threadtoolsupply.com go with those tie rods.
