Re: Subaru lower arm recall

Hi guys when you mention the arms is that the front wishbones if so isnít the steel wishbones only on the wrx/sti wagons or on the standard non turbo saloons. As JD says he has alloy ones his must be a saloon wrx/sti models i have three bug eyes all turbos but only the wagon got the steel ones the rest are alloy ones.
