I found a set of aluminum control arms off an 04 STI. Will they fit? The price is unbeatable...

By themselves they are not a huge mod ( the most you notice is from the bushings in the arms) but as a middle road mod they are great!

Yes they fit. And they give you 1.5 degrees more caster. I actually think that they are a very good suspension upgrade for the money.

Here are pics on mine:

The added caster comes from the Transverse bushing.

Actually I believe that the arm itself is shaped differently. I also added even more caster with the Whiteline ALK.

Here is a long NASIOC thread about the various aluminum A arms. Long, but good read with really good pics:

Also, the aluminum arms are lighter and stronger. Always good to have these attributes in a suspension.
