Just bought STI brand RSB 21mm that came with 2 nuts and two JDM rubber bushings. I also bought clamps and brackets, left side-right side. My dad bought them from Subaru for me because of nice discount. Got part #'s and pics if you want them.

I would be interested in part #'s if you still have them. How does the car ride with these upgrades? Are the JDM rubber bushings same as endlinks?

How strongly is it recommend that i get some solid medal endlinks to go along with a new 20mm rsb. Moving from the stock 13 I'm expecting/hoping for significant improvements but worry the old plastic/rubber/what-have-you stock links that are now going on 13 years old. Whatya say?

It should be fine since the 20mm also uses those same plastic endlinks. I swapped a 17mm from my WRX onto my GF using the plastic endlinks and it works fine.

Whiteline also offers these which are a little lower in cost than most of the machined solid ones:

Ok, I've read most of this thread and many others, and still can't find my answer.

Looking for a 17mm rear sway for my 2001 impreza L to replace the tiny 13mm one. I found someone with a bar (no brackets) from an '02 wrx wagon. I'm pretty sure the bar itself will fit, but about the brackets.........
.....will the ones from my L work with the wrx bar?

You need the bar and bushings, the rest of your stuff (the stock brackets and mounts) will work with a 17mm bar

I already have new polyurethane bushings (end link and bar-to-frame ones) for a 17mm bar, shipped and on the way.

I was just curious about the metal u-brackets that connect the sway bar to the frame. I guess they're called mounts, and not brackets? Either way, seems like my old Impreza L mounts/brackets will work with the wrx bar.(?)

Thanks.
