location = Mars Hill - are you in Michigan with Rob Bell or what?

I can't imagine the EA81 control arm bushings being the same front to back. i'm not familiar with the EA81, but on every other Subaru the front and rear suspension is completely different and incompatible.

those places have some parts look up stuff, not sure if they'll have brat stuff or not?

a call to a dealer asking for part numbers would verify if no one else pipes up.
