This is possibly my favorite Subaru I've ever seen.

Glad to see you got it back together after the gaurd rail incident.

it was a sad hit but all is ok now since its better now.



















so decided to improve the handling of the car a bit better and I noticed the 2015 uses rear spherical bearings. I had a machine shop shave them down each side 1.5mm and made a spacer to take up the slack for pressing them in my lower suspension mount in the rear of my coil overs

locally I found a nice set of ES-Tarmac ENKEI wheels 5x100 16x8 et45 14lbs wheels, super light weight compared to my braid wheels







started to build the spare motor, Ej22T stock crank, 10mm oil pump, ACL bearings, Carrillo Rods, Wiseco pistons, cometic head gaskets, ARP Custom Age 625+, V9 STi heads, killer b pick up, and allot of new factory case bolts and plugs gaskets

Which of the rear bushings are you replacing with spherical bearings? Because I see a potential binding issue if you do both outer and inner on the trailing arm.

The outer is perpendicular with the vehicle while the inner is around 20 degrees from perpendicular iirc, replacing both with bearing would require that the stabilizer arm (the current arm with bushing perpendicular to vehicle) would need to change it's length over the range of travel, or the Mount would need to be flexible.

I've thought about bearings in my project a lot and have decided to go bearing inner bushing outer and in the future reengineer the subframe, mounts, and arms.

the lower one in my coilover and the top mount... found a good place to get stuff made near me so control arms and what ever else i can come up with ill get them to make it for me...




































so this is what else I'm working on at the moment along with the lower pillow ball bushing for my coil overs, I decided to get a one piece unit made so I can get rid of the rubber spacers and all that mess..

this is a prototype unit to test on the car then i can get them made up once it fits ok.

black is 80s strut mount, green is coil over mount.. needs a bit more work to be perfect fit








also found the rear garnish in japan for my car, maybe ill put it on. to many holes to drill in a clean car.

lol the justy is becoming the next to disappearing cant wait to see it... I owned one a very long time ago and was contemplating sticking a ej set up in one but never went to town with it







































subaru 80's old meets subaru 2012 new moulded into one...
cnc billet aluminium & anodized black, now I can add a pillow ball at the top mount like the front..







next project is cnc billet aluminium front control arms with pillow ball and 1' longer so I can get some larger cv axles to with stand the abuse I am about to put down. cv axles will be new age subaru length.

so this is my rear top hats bolted up with spherical bearings.. the lower cups also have 2015 STi spherical bearings made buy subaru which I needed to make a spacer.





I decide to get serious with my coil-overs to make this car handle like a top notch missile and I got the GR STi Ohlins road & track set.. I have to do two mod's to make them fit perfect which is the lower rear bushing mount will be made new with a STi spherical bearing and drill the front top plates to early subaru size like leone/gc8. my reactions from just holding the ohlins is how light weight they are WOW half the weight of my hsd..



like to thank jake @ ohlins usa for hooking me up with the extend clickers also !.. there on the way.

LOL all most, it sure was a close race haha























so here they are, my very own aluminium control arms like the big boy STi have. now the little Leone can be up to STi spec !
But the little Leone has 1up on the STi with the 2015 STi oem pillow ball bushing in its place

25mm longer so now I can run oem cv axles from a STi or those 800hp ones..

What do you want for the old coils you had? If the price is right I'll buy them off you.
