Installed the 04 sti rack and replaced the power steering pump as it was leaking pretty bad (the power steering would cut out during hard turns). The quicker steering ratio makes the car more fun to drive now.

Picked up a Ver 6 R160 suretrack LSD from a local member. Gotta replace my busted VLSD and replace my driver's side rear axle (since the boot has been torn for a while) this weekend.

Good stuff man! Yea I love how the STI Steering rack makes the car feel more fun to drive LOL. I'm glad I did the steering rack swap. Yea I want to paint mines sooo bad too, but then again I want a 6spd more than a paint job lol

Yeah 14 year old paint kinda sucks, it doesn't look so bad in pics but in person, there are fade spots everywhere and failing clear coat But I keep on buying other parts, I want to get aluminum LCAs sometime, to offset the weight of the heavy 4pots.

Yea I wanted to get aluminum LCA at the time of my swap too, but the funds were very limited at the time. Now that I have everything bolted up, i'm too lazy to swap out my LCA if I were to get some HAHA.

Installed my new to me Suretrac LSD since my vlsd was busted. I can feel the difference in taking turns, but I haven't had a chance to take it through hard turns yet.
Here's a pic of the diff while it was out of the car. I had to dremmel out my existing diff housing to fit this in. Sorry for the crappy pic, my hands were oily lol.
