Great shocks for 2012 Subaru Impreza
Just got these installed on my car and comparing them to the factory part this shock has a little less metal surrounding the rubber mount connecting to the chassis. However, they fit perfectly and the ride now is nice and tight. Definitely has a bit more stiffness compared to the old used shock, but that's to be expected. Overall, highly recommended and got this for a great price during a recent sale!
The only caution is to not over-torque the air tube nuts onto the plastic T connector. I had to buy a new air tubes kit after the plastic T broke. Installation was straightforward. Shocks work well. (I replaced coil over shocks that I installed a year ago because they allowed the rear body to sink low when heavily loaded.
