Subaru WRX Econo Suspension! Part 2

We had last left our GD WRX with the front suspension mods from ST Suspension and Whiteline. Now it’s time to finish the installation at the rear suspension and get the car’s basic setup done.  Jason starts by removing the rear wheels.

Next, the strut bolts are removed.  The brake line clips were missing and the brake lines were just flopping around, chafing.  As we said, make sure you have a good mechanic working on your car!

The back seat was removed to access the top strut tower bolts.  The three nuts holding the strut in were removed.


  1. Finding a knowledgeable, competent, and trustworthy mechanic is a real challenge. I’ve found many factory/official dealerships to be disinterested in providing quality service, resulting in everything from misdiagnosed issues, to parts not even put back on the car!

    Unfortunately, Moto IQ are located almost 16000 km away from me!

  2. Is the service tool mentioned included with the purchase of the coil overs, or does it need to be purchased separately? If separately, what is the part number?

    1. It’s actually a tool set and probably not justified unless you are a KW installer. You can hold the shaft with regular tools, it’s just not as handy.
