Picked up a 2005 fozzy sti last weekend

Has a few issues but nothing serious
Drivers window motor has gears stripped inside due to corrosion, knocking back shocker and head lights needing a polish apart from that it's clean

Does have a defi boost gauge and controller fitted as well

More documentation than I can shake a stick at from daybit in came into this country via torque gt

Some pics

I know that car. My mate was the north East dude. :cool:
Found his email address from the opie oil receipts and emailed him this morning asking all about the car was on a private plate s8rru as well


Have already fixed the window motor as teeth on spindle inside motor was worn beyond repair, so took a chance and used mig welder to weld drive to plate and worked a treat now, fully greased up and now smooth

Just replaced both rear shockers as passenger side had more grease on the outside than inside of it

Used new bump stop kit and new top mounts and a set of tein enduro plus shocks sourced by torque gt which are fully adjustable as well

Only wee jobs left are

Get the rear tubs undersealed again and small bits underneath and see if the headlights polish up but first owner said he has done them twice and plastic as micro fractures 😢 if not possible bit the bullet and get a set of lights from Japan

Nice. The Teins are good fitted them to mine while back and are doing well. You might be able to get replacement plastics for the lights I think? - there's a thread or two on here about replacing them IIRC.

Also found out small knocking noise at front end

Turns out to be the front anti roll bar bushes are totally shot as can slide the anti roll bar side to side

Will order a set of polly bushes for front and rear bars

Find it nice drive and relaxing compared to my 400 bhp impreza

I would highly recommend you put some form of ceramic sealant or wax on them to slow down the fogging. Unless you've ordered the new lenses....

Does any one know what sizes are the front and rear anti roll bars are on 54 plate fozzy sti

And is it worth the whiteine drop links for rear anti roll bar kcl32 I think

I think the OEM rear arb is 17mm diameter and the front is 20mm.

I've bought OEM drop links from ICP as they are loads cheaper and pretty much do the same thing. But if you want whiteline stuff I would recommend you get the following at the same time....I'm currently running it on my set up all bar the whiteline arb-I've got a RB320 rear arb. All of the below is a great way to take the handling to the next level for relative low outlay.
