Subframe Install

Thank you Subaru for keeping many of your components universal! Today we installed the 2004 STI rear end into our 1998 2.5RS platform. To our surprise it went pretty well. We swapped over control arms and subframe from the STI since the STI platform is a bit wider, so it will give us a more aggressive and functional stance hence why our wide body kit is going to be so crucial to making this project a success from a geometry standpoint. 

Tomorrow we may tackle the front end, although this seems a little more complex and modification worthy since the STI subframe does seem a great deal different than the original 2.5RS subframe we are taking out. We will be running whiteline adjustable swaybars and endlinks on this application as well; 2004 STI fitment of course.
