Thanks, I think this is the low it will get. The springs have been on for a while and have settled I am sure... Disappointed in the height, but the performance makes up for it in the corners. :banana:

My Mustang was low.

Looks great; definitely a good start. Like the other guy said though, you should go a little lower to eliminate that fender gap, but its certainly not bad as is!

Go with a Ver. 1-4 front bumper as a next step! I think that'd be a solid move.

Yeah, I am not too worried about looks with this car, more performance wise for autocross. The Eibach springs have a really nice feel to them.

Gas
Insurance
Taxes
Weighed too much
Had lots of problems mechanically, aethestically, etc...

It was my third Mustang and last Mustang. I hated that car.

Looks good man. I wish I could lower my car but it's not exactly the greatest idea with the roads we have here in PGH.

Oh my God! It's a Subaru... in South Carolina! :eek:mg: I was down there a few months ago and I didn't see any mentionable Subaru's the whole time we were there. :(

I'm moving to Florence on Thursday, we should meet up sometime.

Hi Tuan. Thanks for the welcome and I am no way near done with this car.

Cool man, yeah would be good to meet another Subaru owner. Let me know if you are ever in the capital area.

I like that color!
Yeah it gets lots of looks.

Nice. I have a 94 with the same suspension set up except I have the 13" steelies. Now that shit is low. Good luck with what you plan to do with the car.

Do you know if there is anyway to hook up a rear swaybar to our cars? I see no place for connections. :screwy:

Easy peasy, find yourself a pair of the rearmost lateral links with the brackets. Any impreza lateral links will fit, whether they be newer L or an RS.

My '95 L didn't come with a rear antisway, so I swapped out the lateral links for the ones knifed from my '97, then swapped in the mounts and antisway from a 2005 STi.
