Create a solid connection between your steering wheel and car, and increase positive steering feel with the
PERRIN Steering Dampener Lockdown.

Why you need it

Many Subarus come with a steering dampener installed which is designed to reduce feedback from the road. This dampener allows for slop in the steering wheel that does not translate to any movement of the wheels on the road. Whether you're turning the wheel under normal driving conditions, in a parking lot, or on the track, there is a noticeable slop in the steering wheel.

How it works

The PERRIN Steering Dampener Lockdown compresses the rubber within the dampener and fills the gap which virtually eliminates any play in the steering wheel.


The PERRIN Steering Dampener Lockdown is designed to be installed in as little as 30 minutes on a 2015-2016 WRX. Other models may require removal of additional parts; installation time is still less than an hour.

Construction & Finish

The PERRIN Steering Dampener Lockdown is made from precision CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum. They come anodized black and are pad printed with the PERRIN logo for corrosion resistance and a stylish finish.
