UPDATED INFORMATION HERE

So I am looking into getting a quick rack for the SH.

I believe that the 2015 STi rack is a direct bolt on.

I also have access to:

GR spec-c (2.7)
Liberty (2.7)

what's the ratio on the SH? is it worse than 2.7?

Does anyone know the SH part number? I can only find the USA version...

"Variable ratio, Engine-speed sensing, Power assisted Rack and Pinion
Steering Wheel Turns lock-to-lock 3.2, curb to curb 34.4ft; wheel to wheel 37.4ft''

there is a confirmed fitment of the 2015 VA STi rack into 2011 GR WRX in aus.

It was direct bolt in. All i need is to confirm the stock SH rack part number is the same as the stock GR WRX rack part number.

2011 GR WRX has same front track as foz @ 60.2 inches, but 60.6 in the rear.

That would be a noticeable improvement to lose the vagueness.

Quote:

2.5 turns lock-to-lock

I wonder if that could be too jittery in a daily SH?

Def go the quickest rack you can find. I love mine, it is an incredible upgrade. No having to lift your hands or cross up when turning is great. And i dont think they are too twitchy etc. Its the way all cars should be.

Agreed. The only issue I've had with a 2.2 is trying to take off a jacket at 110kmph. Tip: do everything, slowly :lol:
