I love your mod path. It's exactly what I want to do. I bought a pitch stop mount, shifter bushings, and positive shift kit to start for my 15 wrx, but now I need all the other bushings and mounts too! Can't wait to read more. Keep it up!

As the car currently sits, it's a little overbuilt for my driving abilities, but just enough to where I can comfortably get familiar with its limits. Coil overs are next on the list (likely going to happen next January or February).

Live from Corner Speed Tuning, lol. Oil change and rear endlink adjustment.




And a proper shop nap on the most comfy couch ever.

True on the Kartboy endlinks. There's a funny story about the rear end suspension upgrades: once all of the bushings, endlinks, and sway bar were installed, an interesting hollow clunking sound started to happen at really low speed turns (like, creeping out of a driveway slow). I didn't think too much of it until it started to happen when going over just about every road bump, no matter the speed.

We originally thought the rear subframe bolts may have loosened, so we cranked those down. Not two weeks later, the sound came back.

After some R&D investigating by John, he theorized that Whiteline's grease-less bushings were causing frictional tension which worked its way through the sway bar and focused on the endlinks. So he found a set of ye olde greased bushings by Whiteline and swapped them out. Clunking sound has yet to come back.

When it comes to the endlinks, it's normally the endlink, mounting hole on the sway bar, a washer, then the bolt that connects everything together. There could be some wiggle room for the inner edge of the endlink to wedge itself into the mounting hole which could cause a similar, if not the same, hollow clunking sound to happen as the endlink is being constantly moved around. To prevent this from happening, we added another washer between the endlink and the sway bar so that endlink stays in alignment and doesn't wiggle around, which was today's visit.

(John, feel free to correct me if this explanation is off... I'm currently running on 3 hours of sleep, lol).

sounds about right. I too had clunking for the longest time ever, never really bothered to check it out then it got worse, turns out my endlinks got loose somehow so I tightened the endblink bolts and the noise went away.
