I guess Drew, Mikey, and me all keep wheels that won't fit on our cars. I still have those bronze 17x9 Wedssports in my garage still.

suspension!!!

I get the braking thing but i would just do pads personally. Larger discs dont mean better stopping power. They can disapate heat better thats for sure. You will never over heat your brake fluid in an AutoX so you dont need to go crazy on fluids.

Brake dive will still be there until your spring rates change up front just because your rear tires have more stopping power doesn't mean the weight shift of the car will be held back.

for you in STX getting the most adjustment out of your suspension as possible will be beneficial to getting a proper alignment. I would spend my money on suspension bits and better instant grippy pads and maybe new lines if you really need them or your current ones are swelled up.

all reviews say the larger disk ads more brake torque and more stopping ability. this would improve my VEry shitty rears. creating a more even brake balance. thus relying on the front less, eliminating a lot of the nose dive. reviews are good and people love it on the early imprezas. about 100 bucks to do the conversion.

its not very expensive and people talk highly about it. suspension will come, dont worry

For the cost thats not bad. I wont get into why i think its just justification for the cost to say it reduces a lot of the nose dive.

I understand it on a motorcycle and I get it on the car but unless its not grabbing at all in the back i don't see a large significant improvement. BUT! any little bit helps in the long run. So W00t!

I think my next mods are def alignment goodies.
