WRX front and rear calipers, blank rotors with larger rear legacy rotors, Hawk HP+ pads, motul RBF, Hanhook RS3 tires

Let me know! I have to reassemble my struts so they stop clunking, get a new trans mount or stiffen the one I have, and get it all installed.

the blown strut might help you...

when you take corners, instead of tripoding around it, the blown strut will just flop around and fall, keeping the tire in contact with the surface, thus aiding in your traction, instead of picking that tire up and only having three points of contact.

unfortunatley its in the front, so instead of 'just' tripoding, imma look like a hippo with its face in the dirt and ass in the air haha.. really its not bad but hitting surface bumps on that corner will leave me bouncing for sure
