I'm adding a RSB to my FWD 93 L Wagon. Will the rear lateral links from an AWD Impreza bolt up? (The ones that the endlink bolts to.)
I just put Whiteline lateral links on my car, and decided to buy the necessary bolts ahead of time, since they do have a reputation for snapping. On the plus side, this reputation means that just about any Subaru dealer will have the part in stock, and will know its part number by heart.aegean93l said:Do you have the P/N's for the nuts and bolts I'll need? Where's the best place to get them?
Those bolts provide toe adjustment. If you have adjustable lateral links, camber and toe are changed by adjusting the length of the arms themselves, so adjusting the inboard bolt for toe is pretty redundant.coger83 said:The rear inner bolt provides camber adjustment; if you have adjustable lateral links, you can buy the whiteline bolts that eliminate the camber adjustment.
wal.lin said:No, I already have 2 of them. I'm just saying that your DIY is missing the major part of needing a awd rear crossmember or a new long bolt that will work with the awd latteral links. I already tried putting on awd latteral links on a fwd car and its not going to work without either a new skinner long bolt or an awd rear diff xmember.
Summary, your DIY is uncomplete and only works for a awd impreza.
DumbUglyDragon said:I was under the impression this couldn't be done because of how the lateral links bolt to the rear cross-member. You would need an AWD cross-member, in order to bolt up the lateral links properly, and as a result you would need an AWD fuel tank, etc.
Well either that or find some funky aftermarket bolts....
What do you mean, I can re-use my rear lateral links? Don't I need AWD lateral links so that they have a swaybar bracket?imprezaL2345 said:you're right. but, you dont need a rear cross member. what i found was the inner lateral link bolts are to big for the awd lat. links. so i tried one of the outer later link bolts and it worked like a charm. so, you need to pick up 2 outer lateral link bolts aswell as the lat. links.
bolt size is 17mm, you can re-use you rear fwd lat. links, the ones w/o the swaybar bracket. what's easiest is going to your local junkyard and picking you 2 extra bolts that connect the lateral links to the knuckle
So I could just replace the AWD inner bushings with FWD bushings and everything will bolt up to the x-member with the FWD inner bolt?supermoose said:you can pop the rear AWD lateral links, you'll have to swap inner bushings as teh ID's are much bigger on teh FWD's
