Pretty sure my axleback gasket is toast. It sounds like a tractor at the moment. On a good note we have gotten six inches of snow and it's still going.:banana:

Well I was wrong about my gasket. My whole axle back decided to detach itself in traffic. :unamused: Thankfully one of my friends picked it up before it was hit. We have quite the crew. We have my rs my friends bug eye rs a yellow vw bug a Saturn vue and a mini van lol.

Well first it broke the hangers then rattled enough to break the rusted bolts.

Instead of just getting an axle back the plan is to get a cat back so I don't have to worry about any more rust issues (on the exhaust atleast). I've been looking at eBay tsudo systems because I has no monies.:(

$289 with free shippings not too bad, and it's stainless. I had a 2.5 to 4.5in OBX muffler that came with my car. Sounded great on start up with the 2.2l and ripped but was a bit loud on the highway.

Stainless was the deciding factor. Loudness doesn't really bother me. The cops dont appreciate my straight piping at the moment though.:devil:

Got my custom Walmart JDM cutting board mud flaps installed. I just need to add something to them so they're not as plain.

Love the look of these... did you just leave them whole? What I mean is, did you cut them at all or install as is? They look great.. Im with you on adding something to them. How much were these at wal mart? Maybe get some sticker letters and just put SUBARU on them.

I agree, those came out really well, and the red looks good especially with the white wheels. maybe get out some painter's tape and continue with the two tone, 2.5rsobs? :naughty:

To make them fit I only had to cut off 2 inches off of the inside to clear the sway bars. You would need to cut off more if you wanted to tuck them in farther. I'm going to email subaru' s customer service for decals. The total cost at Wal-Mart was $4.86.

Oooo gotcha. The silver bumper is only temporary until I can buy paint because the whole paint job sucks lol. It's a good way to learn to paint. Also my mud flaps we work great an don' t flap.
