What’s that noise? My Subaru is so low that the axle is hitting the pinch welds?

So I have nothing against a nicely stanced Subaru put together with quality parts. However, when your Subaru is so low that your axles are grinding into the body/frame of the Subaru we might have a problem.

I mean what’s the worst that can happen? Maybe the axle grinds in half and snaps while driving down the road and you have an accident. Hopefully yourself or no one else is injured

The “game changer” Subaru trunk lid.

I think somebody likes flannel way to much and has decided to make their Subaru suffer.

Truly a “#Gamechanger”. I think I just puked in my mouth a little.

 

 

Don’t wet sand a carbon fiber hood.

This guy had a bright idea of trying to sand his carbon fiber hood on his Subaru. Body work should sometimes be left to a professional.  Especially if you want to wet sand carbon fiber. It’s extremely dangerous if you don’t wear the proper PPE. All of the small particles can cause extensive damage to your lungs.

With these cheaper carbon fiber hoods once the clear coat is this damaged and down to the carbon fiber it’s safer for your health to have a professional look it to determine if it’s salvageable or not.[amazon template=image&asin=Subaru][amazon template=image&asin=subaruidiots-20]
