Thought it would be fun to start a thread on everyday things we do here and there to our beloved Subarus. The weather is getting nicer, so I'm sure we will all be outside more tinkering on our cars.

Today has been a busy day for me! Got my Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 tires in yesterday from Tirerack for the Sti and had them mounted and balanced today by a real cool guy off of Nasioc. If anyone wants his info in the PNW PM me. He runs a legit business out of his home doing tire stuff n such, for a really good deal. But let me tell ya, these tires are STICKY!!! They pick up gravel everywhere but they are SOOOoo nice! It feels like a different car

When I got back from joyriding the STi in it's new tires, I washed the Forester (for the second time this week) and finally got around to hand waxing it. Looks pretty, but boy is there a lot of bumps and bruises on it!

What did you guys do to the subarus today?? :biggrin:

took the engine out, then striped it down to a short block to find out why it died on me.
found a 8mm socket in the drivers side head

but the thing is it had to be in for 3 months now. it took that long to damage the head
did a engine swap. put a 04 n/a engine in to my forester took me 5 hours to do
parked in the garage for a few days:icon_frown: its to hard to drive after my surgery. Its much easier to drive my pick up.

changing the rear wheel bearing turned into this. More I took it a part more other problems I found

bought new summer tires, fixed the sized rear wiper, and fixed the bad connection on my hellas
