Supposedly, here in New York State, the municipality that maintains the road can be held responsible for damage caused by potholes.

That is a brutal pothole(s). At least it didn't cause you to have an accident in dat noVa traffic. Is the wheel OK?

oh ive already filed a claim with VDot. wheel seems to be okay.

i actually tried to avoid, i do every morning. and somehow went right into it. and when i hit i knew it was bad and then my pressure light came on instantly. blew out the sidewall.

tire is 2 weeks old tomorrow. Continental apparently has a 12-mo road hazard warrenty so im going to see what it takes to get a new one.

Holy crap, I'd wanna kill someone over that pothole.

And I'd be worried about uneven wear between old/new, but I guess 2 weeks shouldn't be a big deal

yeah, there's no wear on these yet. But what I'll try to do is get VDOT to foot the bill for a new alignment and mounting/balancing cost; claim already submitted.

Nevermind on my awesome parts, they is sold.

BUT, if anyone reasonably local to Ohio is interested, I have a front subframe and steering rack from the same 2005 STi that I need to get rid of.

Like, I'm moving out of state in a few weeks, and REALLY need to get rid of it.

Local WRX/Fozzy guys want awesome steering?

?

who cares. the amount of work to make that fit would render it unusable for most of us

I dont think so, it looks like it fits with all the stock bits in front of the engine, but uses a fmic and flipped intake manifold.

Yeah, no problem. They've got it down to a science. Use the thick grimmspeed tgv spacers and a TB spacer with the tb rotated 90* and it clears everything, even with A/C.
