We need some more SJ's here!



I just got my '17 FXT a few months ago, and so far I love it. I came from a Mazdaspeed 6, but it was time to get something a little more family oriented.

I've since put the 20mm STI rear sway bar in, replaced the leaking prone hose clamps, and installed a Namless 5" muffler axle back exhaust on it. While I love the mods, I'm still left wanting a bit more from both. I plan to get the STI mid pipe, which should increase volume a tad and hopefully lower the tone some because of the larger pipe size. I am also trying to decide which mild lowering springs to get. Right now I think I'm between the Mann ones and the STI Pink ones, but they are only available directly through Japan which is a bit of a pain...

Thanks! tails are colin shread. Im lowered about an inch all around on RSR springs, i love them! I feel like its the perfect drop at least for my uses as I like to drive outdoors alot. Have coils on my WRX i did not want to go that route with the fxt.



The tent is quite large, even folded up. Definitely dont recommend driving around with it unless youre actually gonna use it !
