Frame support
So after installing

-koni struts
-whiteline bump steer and roll center kit, steering rack bushings, front control arm front and rear anti lift/caster bushings
-eibach springs
-hotchkis sway bar set
-kartboy endlinks
-avo sway bar mounting bracket

I think I need more frame support. I feel some flex in the body. I'm more accustomed to 3rd gen camaros and the sort which have subframe kits, but not really sure whats offered for subaru and what actually is most useful. I guess autox'rs would know best which mods if any would stiffen up the frame. Little help!

I like, I like, cusco is where its at. Thats exactly what I'm looking for, thanks for the lead!

Contact Mike @ InfamousPerformance and Tuning. He is a vendor here and an official Cusco dealer. I got it all from him. My chassis is so stiff I if I lift the car from behind the front wheel the entire side lifts. Stiff like a lotus.

It started like this, I bought the subaru, my buddy who went to wyotech hi performance school decided that I cant have a faster car than him, so he goes out and buys another camaro and starts going to town. Right now he's building his engine , 383 forged rotating assembly and afr heads looking to make 600hp at the crank and a beefed up t56 viper tranny, with all the suspension and frame support goodies. So naturally I have to start planning for bigger turbo, like a td06 and some bigger fuel, but I dont like power without any control and precision, so I'll start with suspension and braking.

Some heim joints would hit the spot! Which cusco pieces did you use and how much did it run you. I will be contacting mike once I gather some more info!

LosAngelesLGT 03-18-2013 09:23 PM

Just contact Mike. He knows what all pieces are on my car and how much it will cost. You aren't going to keep up with him in a straight line without a minimum investment of $10k

Tehnation 03-23-2013 05:07 PM

Already on the lookout for a cheap bare block to start messing with! He cant go straight forever, we have lots of turns in ny.:lol:

I'd prefer to have a not as high performance car as him but learn to drive your car better and beat him at a racetrack. That way you can make more sport of him

I Got beat by a Mazda2 at a autox and it was hilarious
