Cut off the bullshit frozen bolts on the rear lateral links and replaced both links with ones with flanges. I then added a fatty legacy turbo sway bar which required retapping the holes for the brackets and drilling out the rubber which holds the sway in the brackets.

Put in carpet from an 05 WRX. I cleaned the **** out of it before it went in so it was almost perfect. Seller threw in some mats that I now use for winter. You can see a gap as the cut wasn't lined up perfectly but I figured out a way to fix that by stretching the carpet and tacking it down on the sides. It is fixed on the passenger side but I have yet to apply the fix to the drivers side.

Fashioned a bracket out of a bolt, a nut, two washers and a wing nut in order to hold the mats in place. Works great.

Put in WRX rear seats. I tried doing it the way that was shown on these forums but I wasn't happy with the results so I figured out my own trick. As you can see it fits pretty damn well except for a small gap on either side. It seems the GC chassis is a tiny bit wider than the newer imprezas. I ended up drilling a second hole for the center brackets on the upper cushion so that it would lay perfectly flat. I tapped the hole and now it fits perfect.

all those bends make it less useful. Why not get a bar meant for the car? I have a 17mm to sell, or find a 19/20.

Interesting. I thought stiffness was what you wanted.

Those rubber caps on the car come off and expose the tapped holes. What all did you do silly goose?

Should be simple bolt on. Beside the fact you got another car's sway on here... sell it and get a real one

Holes were rusted out. bolts wouldn't hold. I got the bar for free so I'm not sweating it. gonna get a whiteline one eventually.
