:slobber: Did not know these could be bought for so cheap. I need some to adjust the caster angle on my rear struts after the lift. Add them to "the list". :horse:

NICE!!!!! I didnt even think to check ebay. The cheapest ones i had found were $220. This helps out. After installing the taller struts and springs, i need to center my rear wheels for taller tires :D Thanks Guys!!

Godspeed stuff is VERY hit or miss. Given that it's not really a moving part (Like a turbo which they also sell) I can't imagine it could be too bad. I'm still on the fence about doing the whole rear end of my car with their kit.

but given that all my laterals and both arms are bent to some degree, it's cheaper and hopefully more sturdy than OEM and I probably can't lose too much by trying it.

Update. I hate these damn things. Completely threw off the daily driveability of the Impreza. Rear end has too much HNV, loud going over bumps... They suck.

However. The rear of the car feels much more stable under heavy driving.

That said, I'm putting stock lateral links back in. These will be for sale if anyone wants them.

I got a good batch then.

Completely quite and gave better drivability. Maybe mine were quality off the shelf scratch and dents or something . I KNOW they were not Godspeed

there seems to be a few make of ebay latteral links I have this set http://www.ebay.com/...5cc7c1a&vxp=mtr with rubber boots over the hiems, I've had them on my impreza for 4 years now and there still quiet. I think the boots help to keep dirt out of the heims but most of mine have gotten torn up and fallen off.

Im thinking of giving this set a try next http://www.ebay.com/...cd3406f&vxp=mtr the hiems look really beefy and look to have a dust boot built into them.
