Legacy BPE Suspension Part

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Legacy 2005 BPE

 

Can you please help me identify this part on the suspension of my Legacy? Is it the Sway bar bush?

 

Can I replace this myself?

Yeah they're your sway bar D bushes and yeah you can replace them yourself, literally unbolt the saddle and the bush has a slot in them so they just slip off. Measure your sway bar and go to your local repco, supercheap or BNT store, they'll give you the part you need. Looking at the pic there is a '20' on one of the bushes so i'd imagine its a 20mm bar, but always measure them just in case.

Zeus nailed it. Consider going to a Nolathane bush, although they can be a bit squeaky, especially if they dry out.

 

As a side note, these can be an easier job if the car is on the ground, or at least has the wheels supported.

Nolathane now do greasefree bushes, they're a great improvement on that. Most places should do OE rubber replacements for a fraction of the cost too

      Evening all,
      Have recently brought a 2012 BM GT S Legacy, black, leather, full STi exhaust, 2.5 turbo and best of all 6 speed manual.
      Its a amazing car to drive, however the speedo, fuel consumption gauge and odometer has recently stopped working.
      Cruise control still works as normal.
      Wondering if anyone has had the same or similar experience and what may have caused the issue.
      Have checked to see any broken or loose cables, sensors etc but to no avail. The newer Subaru’s are a bit more fancy than the old STi parked beside it in the shed!
      Any suggestions greatly appreciated as the nearest Subaru dealer is somewhat of a drive away, we are located in Fiordland.
