Bushings Upgrade For WRXPosted on September 27, 2018October 9, 2018byMike KojimaGeorge installs the Whiteline roll center correction ball joint into the front knuckle. The front lower control arm can now be reinstalled.To change the steering rack bushings the rack needs to be removed. Ian’s rack was old and leaking so we were replacing it with a rebuilt unit. Here Geroge removes the bolt holding the rack to the steering column.Since the anti-lift kit lowers the rear control arm pick up point, the subframe must be lowered as well with spacers to clear the pivots new lower location. Here Geroge loosens the bolts holding the front subframe while supporting it with a tranny jack. With the subframe out it is easier to get the steering rack out as well.George removes the steering rack.The stock rubber rack bushings were soft and swollen due to leaking power steering fluid. The new Whiteline bushings are going to make a huge difference.The Whiteline bushings are in place and the new rack is ready to go in.RelatedPrevious page 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12Next pageRelated Topicscontrol armssuspensionBushingsSteeringGeometry CorrectionWhiteline Previous Article ProjectsFordMustang 5.0 (White)Tuning the Ford Mustang Coyote EnginePosted on September 26, 2018September 26, 2018byMike KojimaView Post Next Article AcuraIntegra (DC2)ProjectsHondaWATCH: Bad Luck at the Track for Our Integra!Posted on September 27, 2018May 31, 2020byJeff NaeyaertView Post 6 commentsI have a lot of the same parts on my 2005 WRX and absolutely love them. One question, if you needed to replace the rack is there a reason you guys didn’t upgrade to the 2015+ rack? There’s a bit of fabrication needed to make it work on a GD but I’m really glad I did it.Keep the GD WRX updates coming, I’m really enjoying them.ReplyWe didn’t do it because of the fabrication needed and the Whiteline solution works fine.ReplyI would highly recommend swapping the WRX U-Joint for the GD STi one. The WRX has a large rubber bushing in it, while the STi is a solid linkage. They can be found used for about $70.Part number: 34170FE050https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4291/35248589593_44ac3c8a2a_c.jpgReplyGood info!ReplyHello MotoIQ. I’ve just wrapped up doing front lower control arm front, front ALK, rear lateral links, and lateral arm bushings from whiteline in my 1999 Subaru RS. I have already had the Roll Center Adjuster kit a few years now.I haven’t driven the car yet, but what is your take on these parts “binding”? There’s a lot of info about urethane binding on the net, but I figured Whiteline has taken this into account…or have they? Thanks in advance!ReplyDon’t really feel that it is an issue.ReplyLeave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
