Swapped the coilovers on this weekend and just came inside from doing a 4 wheel alignment in the garage. Took me 2.5hrs, not bad considering the front tie rod bolts get rusted on and sieze. Went for a test drive and its straight as an arrow + steering wheel points straight.

Installed:
1) seatback cargo net
2) chrome exhaust finishers and
3) cargo area floor mat
All this morning. All came from subarupartswarehouse.com and arrived last night. Had to call them, absolutely could not find the "dimples" that are the markers for the cargo net mounts that require drilling a 1/2 inch hole...they are there but it almost takes a magnifying glass to locate them.

Haven't painted the mufflers yet...there is a home project (fixing some water damage) that has to some first. Darn!

That's what I thought.

I changed all of her lubricants, and took her out for a nice drive, then brought her home, and washed her, dried her, and put her to bed for the night.

Diff fluids were gross... I think the dealer had been skipping that part of the service. ATF looked good though.
