Couple short videos I threw together and making a new one today because the fiancé and I are taking a road trip. A lot of information contained in the videos is pretty redundant for you guys. I just started my channel so hopefully the quality and edits get better as I film more. I've enjoyed following Fezza's videos so I thought I'd try something similar. Anyway here they are. Skip around to the car shots if you don't want to here me talk too much!!!

Thanks guys, I know the videos aren't anything ground breaking, but I get to show the car a bit and have a lil fun in the process.

Enjoy The Baby Beast

You can change the front and rear on each side. The jacking point used in the video will lift the rear wheels off the ground. I use the following sequence: loosen lugs, jack high enough to do the front, do the front, continue jacking until the rear clears, change rear. Repeat on other side.

Wheel nut torque: 100lbs.

That's interesting. I had never jacked up the car until I installed the Steeda jacking rails that go from one jacking point to the other. I thought it was the jacking rail that caused the entire side to lift when using the front jacking point.

Thanks, i've heard that... seems pretty convenient as my WRX requried 3 lifts(left front, right front, rear diff) Just hope the puck fits in nice without catching any of the surrounding plastic stuff... we'll see this weekend.

I jacked up all four individually. Personally, I don't like the idea of using the front jack point to lift that whole side of the car, but to each their own. Since I swapped with just a Jack and no jack stands, one tire off the ground at a time seemed like a good way to go.

Depending on the size of your puck, you may have to notch it similarly to mine.

Here is a better picture of what I did.

To anyone who hasn't seen it already, I tried teaching my fiancé how to drive the RS..... It could have gone better haha, but I think she did a good job for her first time.
