You've got to see them on a sunny day instead of a dark car park! Very shiny :)

After a day of swearing with a few issues during install, I finally got my sti pinks in!
Really love how the car sits now, the 18s now fill the wheel arches nicely and the front lip clears my steep driveway entry by a couple of millimetres.
Got a wheel alignment afterwards and the ride on the way home felt much firmer and nicer.
Here's how the car sits now:

Image

Unfortunately I have not been able to drive the car at all since the install and alignment due to a bad fall on bike that has required realignment surgery on a broken elbow.
Because of my current predicament I had to cancel my tinting with Rob tomorrow but will be rebooking with him once I'm healed.
Apart from that still browsing for some new 18s in Matte Black most likely, suggestions welcome!


hey mate sorry for bring this thread up.
but i'm interested in getting some sti pinks for my billies.
i was wondering if you could show me some more photos of how you're car sits?
the only photo i see is the rear wheel, but i like the look of it so far.
also i want to know what type of springs you got, whether they we're GT Manuel springs or surely not (wagon) springs etc. haha
much appreciation from a fellow liberty enthusiast! :)

All good mate, always happy to help. My following post from earlier in this thread should help you with part numbers that I went with for an even stance along with these fitment guides:

The part numbers are on the boxes above, recommended by the guys over at IM and many legacy gt forums.
Opinions differ on this (check my reply in a recent thread on this in the suspension section) but basically the spring rates are the same on all variants so the only thing that differs is length to attribute for different weight (wagon vs sedan etc.)
I found these p#s give a nice even stance and the ride is definitely stiffer but bearable and with the lower centre of gravity it handles more direct with less body roll.


Also don't have many good pictures since it was quite a while ago that my car was on Billies and Pinks, but here is an old side shot I found. Very much recommend Sti Pinks as the best spring upgrade for the Bilsteins.

UPDATE

Sti Front lip is gone...
Replaced by an absolute bargain I scored on a Zerosports front lip!
Very unique part, only ever seen the infamous NYOOMI rocking one of these lips before and whilst my car is no where near as nice as that example I'm very happy with the look of the front end of my car now.
Additionally I'm very impressed by the build quality, whilst the STI lip could definitely take a beating this thing is real thick and sturdy, whilst the moulding is just spot on. Quality.

Also finally received and installed my DAMD wheel with red stitching!
I, like many others, thought these aftermarket wheels were mostly a cosmetic upgrade but I've been pleasantly surprised how much this wheel has improved steering feel and day to day driving.
The added thickness combined with the smaller diameter is really a great combo.

Thanks mate, always liked the idea of changing the bar to a more interesting Japanese variant. Especially since the previous owner messed up the stock bar.
Funnily enough the US legacy owners are obsessed with out stock bar, and often call it rare JDM... :lol:

UPDATE

The update is that there really is not one... :lol: :(

Nothing has really changed since my last post, although I am waiting on an exciting exhaust setup that is currently on a container ship in the pacific ocean. All will be revealed once it finally arrives and is fitted/re-tuned.

Hilariously this is yet again another modification that i stated in a earlier post I'd likely never do, like coilovers, but hey that's cars for ya!

In the mean time have a more recent, very dirty picture (not in the good way).

Let's see if anyone reads this!

Just posted this hilarity on facebook, and everyone seems to believe that I am getting rid of my liberty for my mum's A250 Sport. :lol:

Let's see if anyone on Facebook actually uses the forum. If so, surprise!
