2008 - 2014 (GR) Impreza Lightweight Rear Bumper Beam
*** While these beams are still in stock, you can save some money if you can wait until April for delivery. Please check out the Group Buy for the next batch of Bumper Beams ***
The Oswald Performance Rear Bumper Beam is a direct replacement for the stock beam on your 2008 - 2011 Impreza. It weighs 6.4 lbs (compared to ~21 lbs for the stock USDM beam). The left side mount is made of powdercoated steel and is heavily reinforced to serve as the attachment point for the stock tow hook.
While the handling improvement is not quite as dramatic as replacing the front bumper beam, dropping 15 lbs from the very rear helps to further reduce the car's polar moment of inertia. This makes the car easier to rotate, allowing quicker turn-in and transitions. Of course, the weight reduction will also subtly increase the car's acceleration and maximum cornering grip while decreasing tire and brake wear.
For Off-Highway use only.
