Pete - this is my next planned mod mate - makes a world of difference to the acceleration in a Scoob. I again had this fitted to my prev WRX and the nose never lifted when booting it I can however certainly feel the front end go light and the front lift with giving my current Scoob some stick. You really can feel the car bite the dirt when you floor it rather than lift with the ALK fitted.

Worth every penny IMHO 8)

just had the whiteline anti lift kit fitted along with links and 30mm lowered tein springs.
the transformation is unbelievable.......only thing is it has created 2 problems which i could do with advice on.
1..the suspension is now that firm that the standard fit "fisher price" stereo skips like mad....recomendations on a replacement that will not skip please.

2... the head light beam is now lower and vision is ..well crap..even set on number 4.
any ideas i could try.

cheers chris

No too sure about the stereo and the skipping mate but hell its good news on the transformation to your motor

As for the headlights - there is a link on one of the posts which I posted up about manually adjusting them What bulbs are you using ? Maybe some HID type bulbs would help 8)

the bulbs are standard fit.....i am bidding on some morrettes but i have just been told by one of the lads at tonights local meet that they are worst than the standard bugeye for brightness.

but the car is now ready for some track action ....no bull its a different car, think the suspension must of been getting a bit tired after 45,000 miles.

money well spent ....happy as a pig in s**t!!!!

Thought this might help for peeps wanting to know what an ALK does Mr Freeze it may well be worth having the geometry checked as you will notice that the kit does in fact alter the positive castor and changes the geometry of your car 8)

Anti Lift Kit - reduce Impreza understeer

The Impreza is a poor handling car with great grip. In a pure sense it does NOT handle well, but is saved on the limit by its all wheel drive. The Impreza really tested the original design because of its enormous acceleration. As any Impreza owner will confirm, powering out of corners means nose up and loads of understeer as the weight shifts to the rear and the front tyres scrub for traction. Power launches will see the nose lift while 70% of the available torque tries to find a release through the front wheels. These are the very symptoms that has been succeeded in doing with the anti-lift kit.

How the Kit Works

So, the anti-lift kit changes the location and geometry of the control arm pick-up point to remove the "lift" resulting from the original geometry. The new mount also relocates the arm in another plane to add 0.5 deg. static positive castor. The new mount also features a performance polyurethane bush which replaces the original high compliance rubber type.

This serves to maintain a closer link between static and dynamic alignment settings through reduced compliance and distortion under load. The 0.5 deg. additional static positive castor coupled with the low compliance bush means over 1.0 deg. more positive dynamic castor
