DJ TSto's In The Mix (of Fucking Shit Paint)
« on: February 19, 2014, 10:16:25 PM »



Sup bitches I'm a 2003 Impreza and I have 2004 STI suspension and I jump off of fucking awesome jumps all the time on my daily driver commute to and from work.

I rust a lot.

for some reason it vaguely reminds me of the elantra wagon I used to have because it's silver and has a fender dent in the exact same spot.

Update: the 2004 STI suspension is gone because I broke a strut, strut top and seriously compromised a ball joint and axle on the right front. :(

I have so many parts that still need to go in.

Updates:
  • Put a stereo in, JVC KD-X310-BT
  • New lower ball joints
  • New wing mirror
  • New passenger side front axle
  • New ball joint
  • New windshield
  • New struts

Still needs a buncha suspension work - needs new strut tops and bump stops. I feel like the tie rods are dickered. Hope the wheel bearings are OK.

Other updates, since last updates:

  • Redid the struts for no real reason
  • Oh yeah right, it was for strut tops, bump stops and bellows
  • New thermostat, rad hoses
  • New axle
  • Another new axle, because the first one exploded
  • Whiteline rear strut bar
  • Evap fix
  • Rolled over 300,000 km

It still needs another new axle before the winter hits.

It's been almost a year since the last update in this thread. Let's update:
  • Put in a transmission mount
  • Painted winter wheels
  • Went on vacation in Japan
  • Put in a cheap-shit pitch stop mount
  • Put new headlight bulbs in it
  • Put steering rack bushings in it
  • Bought an EG Civic, see other thread
  • Transmission crossmember fell out of car
  • Replaced front control arms with lower-mileage wagon arms, freshened up control arm bushings
  • Replaced front swaybar bushings
  • Helicoiled hogged out hole left behind in captive nut by transmission crossmember bolt
  • Taped up rattling clips and added some sound deadening

Never got around to replacing that axle.

I should fill them with cavity wax or something now that we're talking about it.
