WRX rear suspension problem/id

Postby Luke201 » Fri Jan 12, 2018 5:30 am

Hey guys always lurked on the Fourms however unfortunately I’m now needing to make a post. Heard a clunk this morning from the rear, went out and saw some damage to my suspension. I’m not a massive car guru and a little embarrassed to say I’m not sure on what the part is exactly. Can I please have an I’d of the part and maybe a little info regarding the effort in replacing it thanks in advance!!

Throw an image up on imgur. Hopefully it's just a sway bar mount or end link. Those are easy fixed. Anyway, some one will know what it is when you post it. :)

+1 for sway bar end link...It's a C shaped thing.THE RED THING IN THIS PHOTO...https://www.google.com.au/search?q=wrx+ ... NHUn4ON2wM: ..
Yours is probably black and plastic.....that is why we replace them with the Whiteline ones, red, gold, whatever...doesn't matter, they are alloy and don't break so easy.. Could also be the mounting bracket for the sway bar.. https://www.google.com.au/search?q=wrx+ ... 2FSGNW5ZEM: The yellow bit on the top left... Yours is probably black metal and look like this...https://www.google.com.au/search?q=wrx+ ... qxD3EYq8TM: They can be either replaced with this that wont break...https://www.google.com.au/search?q=wrx+ ... RX-hkOyN2M: Or.... weld strengthening plates to your old one, along the base and either side... That's what i have done... Whiteline stuff costs a fortune.....If you want the C shaped red things in the first photo...They are $240 a pair ....You must do both unless you want to buy a new or 2nd hand stock one.. A new stock one from Subaru will also cost a fortune thats why we upgrade...
