Right on well looks great. Upon doin a little more research I believe I found them, thanks again!

If i may ask a question... When you disconnected the ABS, did you just simply unplug / not wire in the ABS system.. or did you just condemn the entire unit?

Reason I'm asking, is i've been getting an issue with my brakes, the pedal never sits well sometimes when I apply brake and I always get a vibration between the speeds of 80kmph-50kmph, when apply brakes between that range... I've tried installed brand new DBA rotors, servicing the calliper etc and i've gotten the same exact issue. Im actually thinking something inside of the ABS pump is giving me the issue. I've disconnected my ABS, as it was not rewired into my car however the lines are still connected (i.e. pressure would still be going through the pump)

Any input or guidance i'appreciate it a lot.

Thanks

Hey man, so what I did was just remove the front ABS sensors. The whole system otherwise is still installed. Did you change the rotors yourself? Just make sure that the surface under the rotors is clean, if it isn't it might cause the vibration. Your problem does sound more brake/wheel related than the ABS. So if the surface under the rotors is clean I would checķ if your wheels are bendt or if they need balancing. Hope this helps

Tried on my wingless trunk today



















I think I like the wing a bit better though, maybe I should get one more trunk and get a v6 spoiler

A little update I guess, haven't posted in a while... So funny thing, just soon after my last post when I joked about getting a v6 spoiler I actually accidentally bought a v5 STi replica spoiler I think I like it a lot better than a v6 one, not to big, just right And I also got amber corners which I love! I also got a free hawkeye STi lip that needs to be repaired but since its missing a piece and its made out of polyurathane which I canīt seem to find anywhere I haven't been able to repair it yet

Anyway took some pics

Uh...it says in the title of the thread dude. It's WRB.

Car is looking friggin fantastic BTW. I love that v5 wing. I really want to find one for myself, but if I ever find one, I have no money. When I have money they're never around.

Thanks Munch! I couldnīt be happier with the v5 wing, for except what the brake light looks like, kinda cheapo... but overall nice and it was already painted WRB!
