Alright, I organized the first 3 posts into one. But lots of the FAQ links suck.

If you see a good thread with lots of good tech that will be useful to someone, please report it with the little "" icon. I'll add it as long as it doesn't suck.

Things that I think need to be here:

BBK wheel fitment threads (the StopTech thread, the Brembo thread, others?) - the threads should live in Tire & Wheel, but we should have handy links to them.

Brake upgrade guide, by application

Suspension upgrade guide, by application
-TiC's long post about how to pick a swaybar size

Tein S-Tech FAQ ()

Why crossdrilled rotors are dumb (but not evil)

List of vendors that specialize in suspension upgrades (RCE, TiC etc)

Who's who of the suspension forum (me, Arnie, Mark Avery, Unabomber, Clint, TCE, Myles, nhluhr, etc etc)

List of part-review threads in the part review forum or suspension review forum that are applicable
-Calling all JIC coilover owners
-KW threads

Master list of off-the-shelf coilovers and what they fit (ambitious)

Part fitment guide (that thing that I started but never really materialized)

Recommended reading for brake upgraes (i.e. links to lots of good StopTech brake tech articles)

Ditto for suspension

Find Ron's Suspension FAQ

Stuff about steering upgrades: bushings, racks, columns

Added links to regreasing STi struts, adding a grease fitting to STi struts, and installing Koni inserts in both WRX and STi housings. If anyone can remember or sees other good threads to add to the list please PM me.
