woo hoo! can you tell me, does the R1819/ VH090302 have a radiator cap, or will I just be using the cap on the turbo coolant tank? I found pictures of this SKU set up both ways, they seem to be a bit inconsistent. (not sure if it matters either way, but curious and trying to learn) Thanks!I can confirm that the ‘R1819’ radiator I had installed in my 98 coupe was listed on ebay as a VH090302.
OK thanks for the info. (*newb here... learning as I go) I think I have the wider track width now, seeing as I'm running the full front and rear sub-frame assemblies with control arms from the 02 WRX sedan. If I understand correctly this should push me out something like 25mm wider than it was with the GC control arms. I was able to bolt the WRX swaybar in there with all of the WRX links, I guess we will find out! I'm trying to get the rear shocks out , the GD had a 12mm nut on the top but the GC seems to be in between 12 and 13, maybe a 1/2"???? The shock bodies says subaru, so I would be surprised if it has SAE threads, but so far I've struggled a bit to get those top hat nuts off and I really don't want to strip them! I have GD STI strut bars and shocks that came with my donor, and I'm going to use the strut bar tophat mounts as a guide to open up the mount just a hair so I can use these shocks...You can use the wrx sedan swaybar, it bolts to the other side of your c-links (because the GD sedans, to include wrx and sti had a wider suspension track). The reason it's preferable to use a 1st gen impreza, or a 2nd gen impreza wagon sway bar is they are the same track width as your car.
