Subaru WRX Econo Suspension! Part 1

Next is installing the ABS sensor line.

The brake lines are installed.

Our coilover is now in place.

Never let lame mechanics work on your car!   The car’s prior owner told the new owner that he only had a trained Subaru tech work on the car.  Well, this guy put the strut mount lock nut on the spring seat and left the strut mount loose!  The strut mount was free to screw up and down and was an accident waiting to happen!


  1. Love the site and asked a question in the past Mike was nice enough to answer. It was actually related to the topic and this one isn’t so I hope you don’t mind. I have a 2018 Civic Type R that needs some new front ball joints. Seems OEM or Spoon ( is the only option. Being my car is still stock ride height would the spoon ones have a negative effect on suspension geometry since they’re meant to fix the issue when lowering a car? Should I just go OEM instead of trying to needlessly upgrade? I was hoping the Spoon ones might be bit more durable as after 12k miles and 15 or so track days my OEMs are already shot (clunking)

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Didn’t know the OEM links were adjustable. We normally go with MOOG ones so they be lubed. The old plastic OEM ones were horrid.
