^ Woot!
I wonder if that setup negatively affects the performance at all... I don't know enough about suspension physics, but maybe even having the endlinks on the outside is worse than on the inside.

from my experience you don't really utilize the full size of the bar and compromise the reason why you installed it(meaning for a bigger swaybar). Like I heard somewhere that the STi bar fitted the way I did makes it act more like a 18mm swaybar or something like that. I'm not really a major in suspension phyiscs

It should work not at its full potential but will work and is definately an upgrade from the 13mm sway bar . I am looking to buy some endlinks also so I can test my new way but no luck at the moment :/

soooooooooooooooooooooo much better. understeer was cut down in a huge way. the less body roll is nice too! that was also when i tested it all ghetto rigged and clunking. im almost done cutting the second one.. you think the swaybar bushings being close to the bend will be a problem?
