Installed wheels and tires today, looks kind of silly with the factory ride height. Does anyone know what kind of ride height RCE yellows, d-specs, and 90 legacy turbo rear top hats would give a gc8? Anyways sprained ankle is delaying progress.

Rear subframes dropped on both cars, waiting for some new parts to put on then the wrx subframe. Next week the rear end should be finished.

Yeah the boot really gets in the way of car projects. Whiteline lateral links arrived to replace the bent wrx lateral links. I don't think anything else is bent in the rear end. Does anyone know the final drive of a 97 brighton?

Broken leg healed and moved to a new house with a much better garage for projects. Here is where the car is at now.



Rear end mostly put together



Recruiting friends to help tear down the wrx.

Still need a shop to check out the wrx motor, any suggestions?

Any reason to swap the wrx gas tank? I think ill just save it in case I need to swap it later.
