i'm sure it's different on different chassies..or how ever the hell you spell that. i've only ridden on them in an Abarth. over shiit roads..you have to hold your butthole closed or you'll poop all over the seats. on good roads..they ride like glass.

Any chance you have a picture of the wide vs narrow bushing you're referring too?

the only issue is length of the sleeve for the front position bushing, is 61mm.

some models use a bushing with a sleeve length of 55mm.

that is the issue i had, you will need to measure it out.

i got the prothane bushings and they had the wider ones, i need to order the whiteline bushings

they are the one piece bushings. not the two piece.

if i can get them out without destroying them (aka no getting annoyed), i'll let you know.

i still have the turbo inlet if interested

Lol just let me know on everything once you figure it out, I'm guessing you actually got a GC8 crossmember? Or are you running a wrx one

catch up time, been way to busy with it being nice outside to play on the computer.

aluminum control arm install after i got the correct front bushing installed, with new ball joints and kartboy end links.







Also decided to install the subaru 4 pots and kick out those tiny single piston brake calipers.




a big woops on my part, don't forget to check to make sure your brake lines are not rubbing on anything or you can end up with this:
