My RX

Recommended Posts

Never really posted many pictures of my RX over the years.  Got it back in 2004 for $1100.

Threw in another EA8T pretty much right away.

Decided to do a 5 lug conversion for better braking, and tire options

I redid the strut setup and brakes several times, so I can't quite remember what I have on there, but..

Removed hill holder, added STI brake booster and master cylinder, and WRX proportioning valve, which required some custom brake line routing

Drilled through floor to re-route e brake to rear, E brake handle from Honda CRV I think.  I work at an auto wrecker, so i was just grabbing stuff that looked right.

Did calipers and rotors as WRX fronts and LGT rears, then Re-did with WRX 4/2 pots all around, which required different rear backing plate.

xt6 swaybars

Had wrx struts/front knuckles in with lowering springs in the front, which required lots of smashing with a big mallet, and enlarging a couple holes.

retained RX control arm with EA81 tie rod end

Swapped in Forester front strut instead? cant remember, it was too low

Got some Miata  Koni's from work for the rear, NB front's I think?

Getting the kinks worked out, had my Legacy's wheels on there.  16x7  Magnesium Speedline WRC Tarmac wheels from Japan.

Why not get the mouse nest out of there from 4 years ago, and do the heater coil.

Concerned with the rust in the rear lid, and availability of body parts, I jumped on an 87 RX in town for $500, engine was taken apart.

And that is all I got for now,  Think I am going to have to tear into it for some clutch work. I will try to get some better pics of the brakes.

Nice ride man! I just picked up a running 87 RX for $50 bucks and a snickers bar. What are you doing with the parts car? I could use a white Rx front bumper mine came with a black 85-86 GL bumper..

I had to repair this thread because Photobucket sucks.

New Clutch

Car was not driven much after the new clutch. I believe the ethanol blend gas went bad or there is gunk in the tank, so I need to remove the gas tank.
