  1. Front swaybar bushings

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    Buy some from traildog. Comes with some nifty instructions too. Takes about 10 min on ramps. No need to remove anything except the four clamp bolts.
  2. Urethane Bushing for 5Th Gen

    Good deal. Somebody buy these.
  3. Rear brake pads with EyeSight

    Autozone and the like rent a spreader tool kit for free with different piston attachments. I would use that over the cube and definitely over c-clamp or channel locks. I’m not sure about Subaru but on previous cars I’ve maintained calipers requiring rotation with compression generally did not...
  4. Front lower bumper cover painted with texturized rubber coating installed

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    I like the subtlety of this mod. I was wondering how this would look. The underguard gives some extra prominence to the front end but the silver is very high contrast so this is a nice middle ground.
  5. Looking at used 2018 that’s been lifted.

As others mentioned some...
  6. Steering Dampener Lockdown

    Honestly, it's probably because the shop you called doesn't know what the part is. Try a shop that deals with modifying cars (imports or Subaru's specifically). Otherwise try to find a local enthusiast who might be able to give you hand.
  7. What did you do with your 5th Gen Outback today?

    Installed CKE FSB and RSB bushings on Monday. Installed CKE Trans mount insert 60d tonight. Paddle shifters tomorrow and axle back next week. Wee.
  8. Steering Dampener Lockdown

    Gen 5: 2015-2019
    I did this install last night on my 2018 3.6R. I read a few install threads and decided to try it. I found the install to be very simple. I actually ran into one issue but that was based on my negligence. Some pointers below (may be reiterating what others have said). FYI, I did not remove the...

    Haha, I can't believe the stock WRX tires look that small.
  10. What did you do with your 5th Gen Outback today?

    Quick parking lot photo after I had my windshield replaced. This was actually for my insurance adjuster so it's super boring.
