How did you get the front glass off the light? I pulled the bottom bracket off and pried up on the little tabs aroumd the light but it doesnt want to budge. Any advice?

Picked up a set of 2011 wrx struts complete with swift springs and top hats along with the stock wrx springs with 16k miles on the struts and 8k miles on each set of springs.i was going to try the set up keeping the swifts in the front struts and putting the stock wrx springs in the rear struts to offset putting spacers in the rear like most do

Let us know how that works out. Sounds interesting. Now that i'm done with power, suspension is is going to be my next area of concentration. been thinking of switching out to the KYB struts or other options.

Howdy, I was looking at your thread about painting the headlights. I got them torn out of vehicle atm....But I am looking at it and its got some sort of box on the bottom along with a screw cap on the back with more electrical lighting inside is it alright to stuff that whole thing in the oven or do I need to remove that too? as im a little worried about that electrical part of it.

Any advice? thanks
