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:

Replaced valve cover gaskets, spark plug tube seals, PCV valve, fuel filter, air filter, spark plugs, plug wires and did an oil and filter change.
Flower petals or STi pedals? :icon_wink:
Had my new Yokohama Geolander AT's mounted.
Valve Cover Gasket Replacement write up

It will be the same for your 02 SOHC NA. I just replaced both valve cover gaskets on my 01. It's pretty easy. Make sure you get the valve cover gaskets, (4)spark plug tube seals and (10)valve cover bolt seals.
Replaced both rear wheel cylinders, brake shoes and hardware. I hate drum brakes! Why was subaru still using them in 2001!?
Why were they still using them in 2007? I have 'em too. :(
That's crazy. Drums on base models leads me to believe cost is the reasoning, but I just can't believe drums brakes are cheaper to manufacture than discs.
