Yeah it does have a 13mm rear swaybar stock. I'm going to replace that with a bigger one. And I have the brakes on already and I love them. I've never had a car that stopped like this.

I have a similar setup (98L 2.2) and yours makes me want to take off the sti wing and rs hood and rep the 'L' look. that's super clean, I like it. And I agree on the rear sway bar, the difference is amazing, the stock one on our cars is like the size of my pinkie finger. *disgustingly jealous of your brakes*(was that hard?)

Thanks, the brakes were not super hard but that depends on the condition of your car. I had a few problems with the stock hard brake lines breaking because they were so rusted on to the soft line, But that is because I put SS lines on.

dude the car looks sweet. if you get the wheels you photoshopped, that would look sweet.

How are the K-sports? they look super nice. im going to be in the market for some new coilovers pretty soon (tired of the JIC's) and I have no idea what to go for.
