I like people bringing up old posts. Just means people are using the search function!
Perrin on top of other personal bad experiences has left a sour taste in my mouth even excluding this situation. However, I do not blame them for this failure. I think it's common enough for it to happen; most notably, those of us with upgraded RSBs.
My vehicle had to be towed out of a ditch several months back using the RSB so that is likely what added to the point of failure. It's just another risk for people to note in the future. I kept the RSB btw as part of my wall of shame. I also have a mangled STi BBS wheel in the collection.
I love the Whiteline set I have installed. It's beefy. And so far, combined with the Eibach kit has proven to be quite the combo. I just have no where near as much mileage on them compared to the parts that failed. I created "how-to's" for both in the DIY section of the forum for those of you interested.
