  1. Still got it lol. Sorn it for a month to tackle rear arch rust. Done myself looks ok from 10 paces. Stripped out all the rear boit plastics to inspect the turrets. Drivers dandy passenger side turrett ok but a rust patch on floor into turret. So treated with metal morphises and sealed up with primer and paint. Struts out and again good clean up off any flakey paint rust treatment then generous application of waxoyl and stone chip. Moved onto rear arms and subframes and much the same treatment. Taxed it this morning and took my ol friend out for a run to screwfix. What a great ca
  2. just popping in now on 92k!! still a daily . bit the bullet and fitted a jdm sourced horseshoe freshly powder coated and got some wagon front struts and x2 new tyres and all is well in the bugeye world. Shes still not pretty more paint has fallen off front bumper now showing silver underneath lol...But recently went straight through mot no issues. so happy camper. makes me laugh all these journos going mad about the yaris gr4...my £1500 scooby been putting a smile on my face for 5 years lol.
  3. ok mate, understand you want to avoid subaru. mine were replace last year as part of recall, they tried to rip me off for new hubs and wheel bearings, messed up the alignment and stabbed a cv gaiter. Guess i was lucky they replaced mine.
  4. him mate, was this inspected by subaru and arms passed? or are these replacement arms that have rusted? Personally after having an arm on my wrx wagon 03 snap on me at thank god low speed id be speaking to Subaru UK. There is still an active recall on these arms so Subaru if passed ok where wrong....any mot inspection will fail them as dangerous to drive. Id be speaking to Subaru mate asap and i wouldnt drive it...sharp jolt in a pot hole and it will snap.
  5. there is a build thread on a forum but dont know which club and contact previous owner wont be a problem id imagine. Ive searched for the build thread but no joy. Both prev and current owner mature like myself. Price is looking at £4500. which whilst not an sti it is extremely well specced and everything is documented and low miles backed up by mot history. only fault i found was some oiling on rear diff drive shaft so looks like an shaft to pop out and oil seal to replace. Does not looked to have ever been on track. Id sort off set my heart on an sti classic wagon after betw

  7. got lucky, found a cat and sti back box reasonably local unused, been in a shed for 15 years...and got a sti resonated centre pipe again removed for PPP all in virtually new condition...had a abit of fun as cat pipe 3 " longer that should have been so cut and welded, all new gaskets and dome gasket car is leak free and standard sounding...stealth mode restored...tomoz im gonna dig original front struts outta shed and compare to 1s fitted.
  8. Nice 1 thanks...the car has saloon front struts onit..fitted by me about 2years ago...no wear on old tyres....but explains the camber issue...mmmm what todo...i do have old struts with broken springs...think ill swap struts and springs...or the eibach camber bolts on these struts...googling session on them. Big thankyou
  9. yes mate 4 wheel alignment was done just after. they said at time they cant get anymore negative camber...i thought maybe they couldnt be bothered so i took wheels off to check and its wound round to max, going the other way puts it into positive almost instantly...somethings wrong....Dealer didnt track it steering pulled to left badly and steering wheel not centered...wish theyd never touched it. Ive since had another look and pushed the hub back into strut whilst nipping up and got a tiny bit off negative as best i could get was neutral which has caused the tyre wear. now ive sinc
  10. im after a bit of help, im wearing the front outer edge of the tyres.....and this is after the Subaru front arm recall... Complete nightmare from start to finish the dealer whined about corrosion and wanted me to authorise payment for new bearing and hubs when changing arms....nope.... When i got car back discovered tracking well out and steering wheel off centre and cv gaiter stabbed... But after getting alignment done ive noticed wear on outer shoulder so looking at wheels there no negative camber at all...so i thought id add some camber at the adjuster bolt and re track but f

If You have a wagon....with mild steel arms....id change em Now...mine rotted out from inside look good on outside...would i get Suba
