06 subframes

Post by Someperson » Sat Mar 19, 2016 7:35 pm

I have an option on a totaled 06 WRX. We'll all of the things fit with minimal effort? Haven't been around for a couple years so I lost a lot of the fitment knowledge

Mechanically, virtually all the good stuff is a bolt in. A few details to work out sometimes, but it will all work (except the rear sway bar).

Electrically, nothing is a bolt in and it all will need adapting.

I'm taking full subframes drop everything in just unbolting it from the WRX and building it into the Legacy. The sway bars don't work because of the Bulge in the trunk for the spare tire?

Correct. Some have chosen to use the BFH.

I'll probably just get a whiteline to trade in while swapping

There's not really much of a difference. Unless yours are bent or rusted out I wouldn't bother. And also make sure the wrx subframes aren't bent where the control arms and lateral links attach from the crash.

Front end was just pulled sideways by a hitch catching. I know the car personally
