well yea, but it was my understanding that the impreza was a pretty decent handling car since its inception.

Well yeah. AWD beats a sway bar any day.

My RS was a decent handling car with a 13mm sway. But the 17mm sway made it better. Every little bit, you know?

Suprisingly no, I am quite imprezed with the handeling of the car. I dont know what size the front is buts its more rear end happy than I expected. Laura has pulled the back end out a couple times, and I had oh so much fun in the snow with it.

has anyone gone from a 13mm to the full 24mm on these adjustable sway bars? i just bought the whiteline adjustable, and i was wondering what the max 24mm felt like, im assuming it would really throw the ass end sideways

I'm getting conflicting data on this. Other people have told me you need to swap out the lateral links.

and bump for updated data.

Haha. Wow... I guess the '04 STi RSB's that I have on my 2001 2.5RS and 2001 Forester S wouldn't make me a knowledgeable source.

They do fit. You don't have to change your lateral links (which wouldn't work anyway). Anyone who's says differently does NOT know what they're talking about.

Are the endlinks the same or do you need the STI ones?
