Yeah it is. I've been trying to find myself one.

Also trying to find the 20mm FSB from a 02-05 2.5RS/TS.

What front to rear sway bar bias is best?? Bigger in front or Bigger in the rear? I was thinking about running 20-20 for my GM6.

What do you guys think? Should I just find an aftermarket 21/22mm fsb and go with a 23/24mm RSB?

Most like larger in the rear. I left my stock front size and got the wrx size for rear. Handles great. I may try larger in the front one day but first the plan is to change all underbody bushings to urethane and see what's up.

update:

00-04 Legacys and Outback N/A FSB will most likely fit our Imprezas. The track for the Impreza is bigger by about .7inch... so it should fit. I'm going to be testing this out since I've found one and reporting back to you guys.

00-04 Leggys = 21MM FSB and 14MM RSB

ok, i have another people who seem more versed in me. Im planning on hitting a pull and pay next month, i already have an 05 FSB. now i understand that i will have to get the turbo xmember off of an older legace turbo or a newer wrx. at the same time i know if i stuck it in now it would break my stock endlinks because the SB end is tweaked outward. From what i have read for proper fitment i would have to get wider control arms and the endlinks that will support the tweak in the SB. So my question is this: is there a wider set of control arms on older subarus (forester or legacy) that i can get to prepare for the upgraded SB? And is the information i have correct as far as the xmember?

I just installed my 97sti fsb they fit without the Turbo crossmember but mount in a different place which requires different endlinks or the sti a-arm. I have the complete front suspension from my 97sti parts car so I just replaced all the worn parts with the nice non rusted still ones I have and it all fit. Just a side note I measured the sti Fsb it is 20mm also.

so then just the different end links (and maybe a xmember) will fit the swaybar?

For the GC & GD chassis, stiffer rear promotes oversteer and stiffer front promotes understeer. This is why on a stock GC RS for example, the factory bars are 13mm rear and 19mm front, and it understeers.

For a neutral feel, keep the front just a "tad" stiffer.

Select your bars based on your suspension mods (springs, coilovers, braces, etc). Hope this helps.
