I'm very interested in hearing your thoughts on the ALK before and after.
What's up. I had these on my green Impreza that I ghetto-boosted. At the time, I had so many other suspension upgrades done to that thing I couldn't really notice a difference other than on/off throttle acceleration and grip. You could probably make an anti-lift kit with some urethane and washers for a lot less then the $200 I initially spent (it was on sale).
When I finish the right side on Bluebird, I will give you an update on how it feels in a road test with the car. However, I'm betting it'll be more of the same because I'm doing so many suspension upgrades at once. Stay tuned fam.
Finished up the front end suspension install, and I have to say (as predicted) I don't notice a huge difference in performance. I'll be off to the alignment shop probably next month.
What I do notice, is how stable it feels at cornering speed. At 55mph it feels like I'm going 35mph. I bet it will be a different story when I get my Advans mounted this summer, as I prefer more nimble/frenetic handling.
Handling is finally where I am satisfied with it. Had an alignment done at AJW Performance in NH, installed some clear fender markers w/ LED's, and 5k bulbs. I have noticed better on/off throttle response with the installation of the Anti-Lift Kit, post alignment.
Up next for Bluebird will be the V4 bumper to complete the front end, and then I'll be saving up for a V1 WRX Type-RA trans. Maybe another set of Ray's Foundry wheels, but I'm not going to get greedy...
Up here in the frozen great white north, frost heave season is upon us. I took the square root of British American Tobacco, multiplied it by Colin Mcrae and decided to get skidplated:
When you get skidplated, you don't even need to slow down for speed bumps. Being plated' instantly turns any normal Impreza into a rally car, this is a proven indisputable fact and is not fake news. Google it.
