Replaced my Rear Wheel bearings, Sounds much nicer. Drivers side was pretty bad.



Also on Rockauto there's some Alloy LCA's posted for $53 so I had to buy one and make sure it was a legit Alloy arm and not a random stock photo..

So $53 Each on Rockauto get's you these Badboys. ULTRA-POWER CMS80181 & CMS80182

Went to a Car meet with some Subies



My Friend with a EJ205 Swapped 2.5RS Snapped me a picture on the highway




Painted my Alloy Arms with Por15 to keep them from looking nasty




Also Acquired a STI Genome Front Strut brace at the Auctions, Plan to get Bilstein's and Tires in the next few weeks.

Some Updates for you guys


My new Facelift 08-09 Dash setup. Considering doing the 08-09 Steering column but I need to figure out how involved it'll be




Picked up this stuff this weekend for a total Steal






Finally got my passenger seat all connected correctly and My airbag light went away. (05 LGT LTD seat to 06 2.5i SE) Still need to sort out the Power seat part



Some Parts came in from the land of Greatness

Good things come to ones that wait, At least Car part wise.. I Picked this Whole 08 LGT Limited 5EAT Steering Column With Paddles for $115. Yes that's $115 Shipped to my door. Let that sink in





So the Pick n Pull Yard near me just had picked up a 2010 Impreza 2.5i Premium so I went a took a Look and It had a Mint Wheel with SWC (like my 08LGT Wheel) But in almost brand new shape but the airbag was blown... So I went and picked that up and made sure it bolted up to my 05-07 Steering column. After that I Combined my 2008 LGT Rear Wheel cover with Buttons to my 2010 2.5i Wheel. Only Part I'm missing is the 08-09 Legacy or 08-14? Impreza airbag Cover.

Got my Bushings and STI Steering Knuckle/U-Joint installed today. Wasn't too bad of a job, Would recommend lifting the car on stands instead of ramps Like I did. You need the rack to move a little bit. Ended up having my Mom just move the Steering wheel ever so slightly to get the bolt holes to line up after that it was smooth sailing. I haven't taken it on a good drive but just down the street and in the driveway I can already feel the steering is nice and more Responsive/More feedback. I love it.


My Front Sway bar Bushings don't look too good and my End-links feel looser than they should be, I'll be doing the Tribeca FSB Soon. Moog or Fancy Solid Frontend links?

Small Update!

I have Aquirred 05-09 Legacy GT Front Calipers, Brackets, and Very low miles Front Pads for Cheap. Also picked up Rear EBC Yellow Pads for my 2.5i Brakes for a price I couldn't refuse. Later on I'll upgrade to the Vented 2.5GT Rear Setup but for now, this should be a solid improvement over my stock setup.


I need to Order Some Blank Rotors soon and paint for the Front Brakes. I'm considering doing Stoptech SS Lines up front while I'm at it.


I'll be installing my Billstein's once my Saggy butt spacers arrive. After that, I plan to get some Sway bars and possibly Endlinks.
