well, things got a little delayed at the shop and i didnt get my car back until yesterday...she got a new sub frame put in, front swaybar end links, front rotors and pads, and the rear brake caliper unseized (luckily it was seized open, not closed lol)

heres the old subframe







also, my dad thought the alternator pulley bearing was bad, (turns out it wasnt) but he kept it for good preventative maintenance. also, i sprayed my pulley covers blue! ill post pics of them on the car once we get the idler pulley back on. oh yes...and we replaced the belts and are in the process of replacing the pulley.









thanks all!

Great looking RS!
but please for the love of the Subaru gods don't put Wal-Mart pedals on your car. Trust me, I work at Wal-Mart and those things don't last for shit.
