GC8 Pre facelift Front Lip

Postby Lick the Knife » Thu Jul 20, 2017 6:38 pm

Hi all,

Have owned Liberty GT Wagons for over 8 years, but just bought my first WRX for weekend fun and motor sport. It's a MY97 GC8 sedan, pre-facelift I am told. I'm going to be doing some Autocross/Dirt Hillclimb with it so want to keep standard height, but would like to put a flexible plastic front lip on it. Have seen plenty of lips that fit 98-00 but not my 97. Any idea of were to find one would be appreciated.

5 Gen Liberty GT Wagon.

Have a look at EZlips ..https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_fro ... p&_sacat=0
I have one fitted to my blue rex for 3-4 years.. Still as good as the day I fitted it. I would suggest your first upgrade should be 4 pot brakes for the front if you intend to do motor sports..

STI lip is best lip for bars up to 98.
But its impossible to find them and if you do they cost drug money.
You can find fibreglass copies but they wont last doing what you want to do.
