when you get around to installing those coils, let me know what they're from and what you had to do like modifying them and whatnot. I'd like to put a set of those in the RX:D

If he had the front done, im sure we could get a full size pic :) But im sure Caleb was too lazy to do the front too... huh?

Lookin great, i like the clearance between the wheel and fender, but it should look great lowered.

Not too lazy, still waiting for parts.

If I could just have a full day to work on it, I could probably get everything done.

dang that looks a lot better! What all was involved in using the WRX coilovers? Was it just a bolt in mod or did you have to mod the strut to make it all work together?

The rear is the easy part. Its pretty much bolt on. The front will require a little more work.

so are you going to do a write-up on what year coilovers to get and how to install them for the USRM? It would be good for us who are looking at doing a swap like this;)
