Unfortunately I can't link the page (it's dynamic), but I can post it here:

SUBARU, Impreza, WRX, 4 Cyl. Turbo - 2002
(Exc. STi & V6)
Product Front Rear Comments Part Number
PRO-KIT 1.3 in 1.0 in 7710.140
ALIGNMENT KIT Rear +/- 1.0 degrees of adjustment. 5.83460K
ALIGNMENT KIT Front +/- 1.0 degrees of adjustment. 5.83460K


And then there's the whiteline kit offered by vividracing: http://www.vividracing.com/prod_suspaccess.php

Any thoughts on how many I would need of either kit, and which one is easier to adjust?

thanks,

Ahhhh, that's just the cheap way to get away with not installing pillow ball mounts like the cusco's. I've heard that if you lower your car 1.5 inches or more it's smart to get something that will let you correct the change both in caster and camber.

Well, that will probably come later for me. Right now I want to make sure I'm not adversely wearing the tires if I lower the car. I can always use both devices as they're installed in different locations, right? Again, how many do you think I need? One set or two?

many thanks,

Oh yeah, the Eibach's don't lower the car more than 1.5" too, so do you still think I'd need the plates?

thanks,

I'm not sure I may go with the eibach's myself and I have not made my mind up. I am leaning towards getting the Cusco pillow ball mounts. I'd love to hear some opinions, also, I'd love to know how much caster I loose and how much camber I pick up with the drop in ride heght.

I think the front already has enough camber adjustment. The rear has none. I just ordered H&R springs along with rear camber bolts.

Well, I got my H&R springs on and WOW....this is the way the WRX should look IMO....the front camber bolts (factory) have plenty of adjustment, but as I mentioned before, you do need to get a set of rear camber bolts since the rear has no adjustment. One set of 2 bolts is all you need.

When it comes to anything suspension I am totally lost. I just ordered a set of Eibach springs since I can't afford coilovers after just breaking down and ordering morettes.

Do I need to buy the rear camber bolts or can I get away with not bothering? Rear is only lowered about 1 inch isnt it? Where do the camber bolts install? Can I do it myself easily if needed? and so on... :lol:

Rear camber bolts are very easy to install....they fit in the top hole on the lower strut mount...I don't know if you actually need them, but they come in handy for adjusting different camber settings.

Ebach/Whiteline alignment kit

How many of these kits do I need for a lowered rex? One, or two?

Which is easier to adjust?

thanks,
