Re: 1993 Ford Spectron XL-T

Honestly, in my experience, the two major things to watch for when shopping for 25-year Japanese imports are rust and previous accident damage/repair. It's surprisingly hard to find a JDM car that has not had at least one minor fender bender in its life. Other than that, it's up to your personal pre...

Re: 20 years of Legacy Central

I haven't owned a 1st-gen Legacy in some 7 or 8 years. I still own a Subaru, but as I get older and my responsibilities continue to grow, my spare time for leisurely online surfing continues to dwindle. Thus, my activity here has all but dropped off a cliff, and it appears the same has happened for ...

Re: My JDM Legacy B4 RSK

I'll update this thread one last time... I'm just a little more than two weeks away from 35 and life is just getting too busy to devote to online forums and social media anymore. So, for the past few months, Okichi had been occasionally throwing a code for a knock sensor. That infuriated me to no en...

Re: LSS Front Caliper Retrofit

I have to disagree with the notion that 17" tires are overpriced. As the industry standard wheel size gets bigger and bigger, the prices on tires come down. I can get a Nexen CP671 tire in a 205/55-16 (which is the stock 02-05 WRX tire size) for $77.99. If I get the exact same Nexen CP671 tire in a ...

Re: Subaru rear LSD types Discussion

The Datsun 510 guys are known to use Subaru LSDs as upgrades for their cars, since 510s also came with R160 differentials.

I found this thread in some of my research, and it's good for identifying certain types of Subaru LSDs:

Thanks for the advice, guys. The grey, curing RTV? Or the blue RTV that doesn't cure and stays tacky? I think you all will have a better answer to this as well...

Rear differential nightmare

The 4.111 LSD rear differential in my B4 has been adorned with more pampering and TLC than any R160 differential deserves. Last year, I had to replace the pumpkin cover that I cracked, and around 6 months ago, the left side seal started leaking. So, I decided I was going to remove the entire differe...

I got mine brand-new in late 2007, so I definitely miss the worry-free simplicity of new-car ownership, but it was an awesome little car on top of that. A lot of ...

Quickly compiling some information here: The police have been to his house... his Focus is there. But his WRX, his mountain bike, and he are missing.
