Ok so we got the front tackled now. How about the wheels? How about suspension? How about brakes? With so many Legacys being scrapped these days. 2nd hand parts are just plenty to find. Patience being the key, and found these great stuff all at a good price. All they needed was a good cleaning. And tadah! We are good to go.
Current generation STI 4/2 BBKs. Had the front resprayed to match the rear in silver. Absolutely love them.
The Enkei STI wheels were a rare find as well. They were in overall great condition, minus some stone chips and mounting marks, couldn't ask for more. Someone also told me these were rare as most of them came in 18x7.5. These howeve were 18x8. So, had them resprayed in original color and in they go. Found a 2,000km used set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres in 235/40/18 as well which mounted great on the wheels.
Next, found a used set of Ohlins DFV. Owner showed proof he had them since early 2014, and used them till early 2016. Did about 30,000km on them, car was never in an accident, and claimed no leaks of noises. So ok, lets try our luck on them. They looked great with no visible damage or leaks, just need some elbow grease cleaning.
Last pictures are of the car yesterday when I had most of the stuff fitted. Am still waiting for new rotos to come so the brakes got to be in the box for awhile more
Also put in a K&N open pod system but was actually rather disappointed with the sound. Not much of a roar but oh well, it does add more music to the drive. lol
Am waiting on new rotors, brakes to go on, a new turbo, possibly a new or used TMIC, and then a final tune. Thinking of adding a roof race, maybe the STI Front lip, and some side spats if I can find them locally. Thanks for reading so far. And please share any comments if I can make this build a better one. Drive hard, but drive safe guys. S.C.
