Cool! You'll love stage 2. The car really wakens up.

Got a question on your Cuscos, did you feel you needed those after the 2' drop to have more camber adjustment? And did you notice that it made the rear sit higher after? I read a few other builds of our 08s that with those they noticed it raised the rear a little.

I thought I would give you guys a little flashback of my previous cars. My awesome SVT Focus.. I really did love this car. ST170 headlights, Hoffel Grill (from Germany), Complete Eibach suspension, CAI and a bunch of other things. This was my first car I modified and it handled like a go-kart! I wish I would have kept it.






Then I bought this '06 Civic. It was a nice car, but just not me. I only owned it for 6 months.



I traded my Civic for my favorite car that I've ever owned, my '05 STi. This is the one that got away. I went through some financial troubles and had to sell it. Stage 2 and a bunch of suspension parts.


Before I sold it:






Then I bought and '07 Civc Si. It was a great car but the Subaru bug had taken a permanent hold on me more than I realized.

Before I sold it:



Then to my Current '08 WRX. My little redheaded stepchild of the Subaru community. Click here for My build Journal
STOCK:



Now:



And with my new Brembos!

I definitely needed them. Otherwise the camber is all jacked up. I didn't notice that the rear was higher at all either.

if you want proper camber adjustment then you want the lateral links. You don't have to get Cusco, but they're all about the same price. I found mine on ebay for a screaming deal.

I swapped my WRX trunk for a wingless one and then bought a new STi wing and had it installed.
