Howdy all.
Anyone know if the GC8 WRX front alloy A-Arms go into the SF5 Forys ok?
I've just discovered after spending $200 on HardRace nolathane A-Arm
rear bushes for a WRX that they don't fit my Fory (GRRRRR).
So seeing its going to be off the road for a few days while i get the old Bushes pressed out

and the new ones pressed in that i may as well upgrade to the alloy arms too.
Cheers in advance for the knowledge peeps.
Timmy.

Yes they will, but you need to change the sway bar links also.

Yeah i'm getting a pair of sti swaybars complete with aftermarket
alloy/nolathane links off trademe anyhow to replace my pencil thin
factory forester 1s so should all tie in together nicely.

The alloy and nolathane ones are the wrong ones. You need this style...

Yeah another mate said i should do that. Any probs that anyone knows of with driveshafts etc still lining up ok?

I've just put my wrx adjusties back in so its super low (still legal) but now when i'm going round a hard right hand turn
pretty quick there's a bit of a vibrating/shuddering noise coming from front left wheel. Someone said my centre diff might be
on the way out, but didn't start doing it until i had the adjusties back in and didn't do it when i've had the adjusties in it in the past
with my 19" wheels (running factory 17s now).
Seems weird it'd be doing it now although maybe cos its so low all the angles of driveshafts are wrong so putting strain on the diff.

Oh and does anyone know if V7 swaybars will fit?
I'd say they'll be different but you never know........

If you can get it cheap enough, try it. If it works, mint. If not, biff it on Trade Me. Someone will want it.
