$1377 mounted, balanced and shipped 2 day to my door from thetirerack.com
Had to roll the rear quarters to clear ($175 or do it yourself).
My car is lowered 1.7"
The wheels stick out further than the tire so they are easy to scratch on things.... just ask my EX girlfriend...:devil:
Is yours a whiteline? Remember that in Australia (where that bar came from) they have the WRX. The WRX has an intercooler mounted on top of the throttle body AND would not facilitate a rear facing Strut Tower Bar as you gentlemen are implying.
Yep...the Whiteline strut brace (and some other braces) bend forward. On the plus side, this allows them to clear the top-mount intercoolers on aftermarket turbo kits for the 2.5RS where bars that bend back (including the STi bars) generally don't clear.
Part of the reason is that the 2.5RS throttle body is closer to the firewall than the WRX (at least the GC8 WRX) throttle body (which is why they can use strut braces that are bent toward the firewall and still clear their intercooler).
