Default Finally got to drive my WRX for the first time in a while!

finally got to drive my WRX after a long while, after I replaced the control arm today. Wasnt too bad to do, once i got the car onto the side of the shop with power tools and a lift lol. Plus a guy who works with us helped me, and shortfuse was there chillin too. turned out I didnt hafta take off the whole U-shapped support gusset that runs around the front of the car, like JordyB told me he did on farminded's car, it was easy to do without taking it off thank god. Anyways so it drives, needs an alignment now lol, but it drives straight so no frame damage again thank god lol. I need to change my spark plugs though, one of them must have been damaged cause the car is running lumpy as hell at idle, and feels like its only running on 3 cylinders or something. Also its running so rich you can smell it pretty heavily. Im not looking foward to changing those. talked to chris earlier (RallyX13) and he said it wasnt too hard so much as it is a PITA because you have to remove some stuff out of the way, but we'll see. Still need to do the STi mounts but those can wait for now.
