Yes you do.Do you have to raise the car to install all of these? I know for the tanabe you do. What benefit is it setting the preload? Thanks.
Just a socket and ratchet. I'd recommend a torque wrench to reinstall, I believe torque on the strut mount bolts is 16-18 ft lbs.Just ordered SPT front strut bar from subarupartswarehouse. I will let you know how it is when it gets here and I get it on. Any tools needed to install?
I don't think that would ever be a good idea but its possible that the lower control arm would not extend far enough down to drop the struts all the way out.im curious how its possible to raise the car and install strut towers? if the top nuts are removed the struts will just fall out. i put a strut tower bar on all my cars since '05.
I'd recommend the RSB. My car feels balanced now front to rear where as before the rear was a little soft. Now you're going to have a pretty locked front end so I would imagine the RSB is worth it for you.Yeah, I have a 13. No other mods yet, but seeing how this goes, my next one may be the STI rsb. I'm also going to get the legacy lights whenever they're available. kmssgoten, I love what you've done to yours. I'm a huge Philadelphia Flyers fan, so I'm loving the orange and black.
bradze, nickshu said he had to raise his to install the tanabe, so I was going by that until I read the instructions. Keep up with your mods too. Been following your thread for a while.
LOL funny i married one (flyers fan) so i am one now by law , but the car is graphite gray with black grill and orange others, its was dark out by the time i was done and i am using my phone to take pics so they didn't come out as well, but thanks lol :29:next one may be the STI rsb... kmssgoten, I love what you've done to yours.
