DIY install guide - AVO Rear Stabi Mount Reinforcement Bracket

E-mail Print PDF

Read more...DIY install guide - AVO Rear Reinforcement Bracket


The two rear mounts for the rear stabilizer bar brackets are ok - for standard rear bars - but not great. From experience, this rear suspension setup has had issues with larger bars flexing, and sometimes breaking, the rear mounts. So we created some rear mount reinforcement brackets to keep this from happening.

This is a guide on how to install the rear mount reinforcement brackets.

DIY: AVO CAB Bushings for the LCA

E-mail Print PDF

Read more...AVO Lower control arm bushings. Probably the most terrifying job of the suspension bits, simply because it involves the wholesale removal of the front control arms on both sides. Not a job you want to enter without preparation. A buddy along to help wouldn't hurt as well, but you can do the job yourself. This job does require some leaps of faith and a willingness to beat on your suspension bits with rubber mallet. Vigorously.

Before you start, you better make sure you have a full set of tools on hand.

DIY: AVO TMIC for 08+ STI

E-mail Print PDF

Read more...Next up on the plate - the AVO TMIC for the 08+ STI Hatch and Sedan. It's a sweet little (well, no, not little) TMIC that's good for a fairly solid 600hp worth of flow with less than 1.0 psi of pressure drop. Literally more intercooler than most people will ever need! It's excellent at cooling as well, with a great bar & fin density. We were careful with the design to have it bolt in with the minimal hassle for a nearly 21" wide TMIC that is 4" deep - precisely the max we could get in without hitting other parts and to fit under the hoodscoop properly.

So let's get started!

DIY: AVO Rear Reinforcement Mount Bracket

E-mail Print PDF

Read more...One of our most popular products, and a must have if you have an upgraded rear stabilizer bar, is our Rear Stabilizer Bar Mount Reinforcement Bracket. This is constructed from thick high-quality steel, and for a good reason: the OEM rear mounts are of thin steel, and bend quite easily, even if you just grabbed one with some pliers!
This degrades the performance of the rear bar, even an OEM bar, by quite a bit as they simply twist the mounts themselves instead of doing their job.

DIY: AVO Fuel Pump Assembly

E-mail Print PDF

Read more...One issue that's going to come up when you start getting to some serious power levels is fuelling. Simply put, your stock fuel system can't keep up after even a mild turbocharger upgrade. So we're going to go over one of the items you'll need to install, an AVO high-flow 245l/hr fuel pump. You can buy the pump alone and install it in the assembly, but that does take a bit of work. Or you can buy one of the AVO fuel pump assemblies, which makes it a loooot easier…

DIY: AVO Solid Rear Endlink Install

E-mail Print PDF

Read more...Next on the list is the rear endlinks replacement. These stock rear endlinks were coming out, and heavy duty AVO endlinks were going in. As with the front suspension, it's an easy job. You will probably spend the majority of your install time finding your 14mm socket. This is another job that can be difficult to do unless you do it on ramps. If you jack up the entire rear of the car and put both sides on jackstands, it can be difficult as the suspension may swing down further than the swaybar can travel. As long as the car is sitting on it's suspension as normal, there is no tension on the swaybar, making this much easier.

DIY: AVO Solid Front Endlink Install

E-mail Print PDF

Read more...AVO Heavy Duty Front endlinks are one of the easier jobs to do, especially if you are using ramps. It will be more difficult to do if you jack the car in the air, as that causes the swaybar to twist, and can make it difficult to get the endlinks on and off. When the car is sitting on it's suspension as normal, there is no tension on the swaybar, making this much easier.

DIY: AVO Swaybar Bushing Install

Read more...21mm Front anti-roll bar Polyurethane Bushing install guide.

This, generally, is a quick job to do. It should take 30 minutes to an hour at most, depending on the state of the various nuts/bolts you need to remove. Older cars should probably get some loosening agents on them before hand. This is another job that is perhaps easiest with the car on some ramps, instead of jacking it up into the air and putting it on jackstands. That is so there is no tension on the anti-roll bar, which makes bolting and unbolting of parts much easier.

I recommend some safety glasses, overalls, and a hat while you are doing this. The underside of the car gathers a lot of dirt, and you'll get liberally sprayed with it while you are working.
