so I just got most of the SuperPro bushings in and new bolts nuts washers every where from Subaru oem :D



80's Subaru radius rod SuperPro # SPF2534K for 18mm bar, check your bar width if you decide to get these. this are made so much better then the whiteline ones that don't even fit in the socket.

Image



80's Subaru 4WD Differential Pinion Mount Bushing, press bushing out melt out middle add SuperPro # SPF3005K with lots of grease and your done... last year I used a newer whiteline bushing from a impreza this year ill use the proper one. New oem subaru bolts and nuts are on back order still.

Image



88 - 91 Subaru XT6 rear hubs 20MM sway bar, this was a tricky one had to cross reference Nolathane XT6/Vortex number to these proper bushings from SuperPro # SPF0361-20. Oem brackets bolts and nuts from Subaru

Image



some people didn't get to see my Before & After pics, I had to get the ball rolling so I just got another spare set of XT6 5x100 rear set up in and this is what they look like from the wrecker's

Image



STi 6mt Gear-linkage, Support Bar, Front Bush SuperPro # SPF2462K

Image


80s Subaru Rear suspension mounts oem Subaru with SuperPro # SPF2755SK for the shock absorber's to give less movement in the control arm. you only need 4, I'm working on my next project car.

Image



80's Subaru oem rear cross member bushing, this one is going to be tricky to upgrade. ill have to come up with something even cut the bushing mount out and weld up something to a newer style. I have a couple idea's in my head, but ill need to think of a good way to stiff this up. one idea is getting it made solid out of aluminium... there is also one more bushing in the rear cross member, it hasn't come in yet once I get that one to play with ill know where to start.

finally found one of these (really found 2 one for the spare build I got in the works). Manual steering rack OEM Subaru VGR ( variable gear ratio ) which means, less weight, less heat, less stress on the motor.

VGR teeth change

right from Japan antic vintage Subaru grill badges for my Leone and the keys also. I'd Like to thank Billy @JPNHunt for getting me this stuff !! great guy to deal with if anyone is wondering !!

Image

I didn't think they would fit, lots of late night number crunching worked.... 225/45/16 DUNLOP DIREZZA ZⅡ + 16x8 et45 Braid custom made rally wheels just for the perfect fit.

well people have asked how did I bolt up the coil overs in the rear so easy. in the pictures you can see everything in order.


what kit I used is the HSD STi GRB 08-12 set up, what I keep from my Leone is the top mount bracket and spring perch cap. drill the same size hole as the washer from the HSD kit so the spring perch cap will go on.

then pop out the bushings & tube from the HSD GR STi stuff and use them on your new set up.

the only other thing is the lower mount on a GR STi has a 55mm wide bushing tube, you would need to cut it down to 45mm size to fit in the rear control arm lower. the bolt is the same 12mm size flange bolt so no need for a spacer in the bushing tube.

Image



all put together

so if one is going to be buliding a Leone in the future the best kit to get would be the Subaru GRB STi 08-12 suspension kit. ohlins ? KW ? Bilstein ? :D future for me for sure ;)

the front you would need the GRB STi 08-12 knuckle with the bolt on bearing which is better they say for its bigger bearing, the top plate will not work unless you drill it out to match your car top mount pattern which is pretty much the same as a 1989-2001 Legacy impreza car pattern.



also the rear in the BRZ is the same as the GRB, the front is the same as a 1989-2001 impreza legacy but the shock is shorter but will work also with the non larger knuckles.

lol thank you glad you liking it












lots and lots of work went down so far, for the front I changed the rubbing in the pockets of the control arms which alone made the car feel amazing... I stripped everything out and under coated it all along with wrapping my exhaust well worth it all even though its a pain.

all the sand blasted powder coated stuff was add along with the upgraded bushings and oem subaru bolts.

Image



the only thing missing now is the front GR sti knuckle bearings, the sti sealed bearings are being made into 5x100 from 5x114 thanks to my good friend that owns a machine shop

Image


super rare no longer made front bumper clips got made from a 3D printer collage kid which made them so good there better then the real ones.. he used some hard plastic and chemical to harden the clips so they last long.

Image



looks amazing now with the second trim on the top of the bumper very happy now.

Image


with all the new bushings repaired shocks & fixed cross member, it feels amazing drives like its on rails ! point and shoot now feel ! ... I still need a corner balance & alignment done so it will only get much better.

Image

Image





straight from japan !! this is the holy grail of part numbers for my car. with this book and part numbers all I can say is WOW WOW..... there is a boat all read in bound from japan to canada with my new parts on it like the JDM skirt kit, the jdm air dam along with much much more things for this car and my other build the Leone Wagon.
