Not that I could notice on my total of 19 km. With a stock idle speed and the AC on it doesn't rattle the engine out of the car like the Perrins. Only difference is that it's nice to shift the car now due to the fresh fluid

Over the weekend marked 3 years of 86 ownership. Didn't do anything crazy, went for a drive a small drive and put some e85 in the tank... which immediately triggered 2.5" of snow overnight. Updates over the last weeks include driveline fluid change, fixing an exhaust leak, new to me RacerX endlinks to replace the clunking Shiteline ones (thanks @RedReplicant), and a whole host of parts for the incoming BRZ to refresh it and get it ready for daily duty.

Installed the splitter over the weekend, pretty straight forward. Full chassis mount, passed the standing test and didn't fly off on the highway so that is a win. Also threw the RPF1 + old RS4s back on for the day. Car drives like ass, and I'm sure the eyeball alignment, corded tires, questionable tire pressures (hot: RF 32 RR 30 LR 33 LF 29), and aero that needs work had nothing to do with it. Next weekend calls for the fresh RS4 and an alignment.

Swapped to the new front knuckles last weekend on the front passenger bearing was cooked. Put back the old one for now, and ordered replacements from Rockauto. Those arrived today and unfortunately the new one is... not going to work. I'm letting a shop deal with replacing this front as well as both rears. On the phone the shop said "you're going to ruin our day, aren't you" when I mentioned the car was from Ontario. Also ordered a Whiteline bumpsteer kit (ball joints + tie rod ends) from Subieland, as mine are definitely past their prime and the car deserves some new bushings. While the rear end is mostly apart, I'm debating buying OEM axles straight from Subaru but at $400 a pop it's hard to justify :/. I know the off-brands are known to fail under track use, even with repacked grease.

Rockauto accepted the return and is shipping me out a fresh bearing, should arrive early next week. Whiteline KCA435 arrived in record time from Subieland as well, our shipping person asked me if there was any part of the car I didn't plan on getting through the mail lol. Also shelled out and got new axle nuts from Subaru at $9 a pop q.q

Still in the air about axles, calling a few dismantlers tomorrow to see how prices and stock is looking. Hopefully I can snag 2 OEM axles for a decent price. If not, $300 shipped for 2 on Rockauto?

Anything wrong with the current axles or just trying to refresh while in there?

rice_classic had a parts store axle fail in a weekend. I snagged a spare set of used axles a while back, I think I paid $150.

Yeah... hence my hesitation towards them. People in Canada seem to think their rotten junk is worth it's weight in gold though. Several so far have been asking $300 per axle for rear end impact cars with 180k+ km :/

Yeah, it's not an easy call. He's on slicks and is racing his car so he's pretty hard on them. They may be fine for periodic track use and DD'ing. I'd just suck to have one fail.

They're both sweating grease out of the boots closest to the differential and the ends and axle nuts are beyond crusty. Would rather pay someone to deal with them in their current state and put in units that have threads left, so that if one fails at the track it's an easy swap.

I did the same with my driveline fill/drain bolts and have already reaped the rewards. Going from rounded soft bolts to fresh OEM ones is so worth it... I hate dealing with stripping hardware.

Yes, using this as a guide:

Ended up calling a few dismantlers within the city and found one with 8 cars on the lot. Asked them to pull two passenger side axles (since the drivers side ones seem to get cooked even in OEM spec), and they got me two low km front end collision units. 1 from a 2015 FR-S with 85k & 1 from a 2016 BRZ with 93k.

No tears or leaks in the boots and they didn't feel like they had any play while there. Probably going to throw them in the car as-is and rebuild the ones that come out as practice, and then see from there if I want to get a third pair.

C$275 tax in, not awful compared to the clowns on Facebook asking C$300 a side with 170k+ km...
