It made a HUGE difference in my car (99 wagon). But I'm stepping up to 20 when i can. Note that it will suck more when you go over speed bumps.

This is great info, tried to find a thread like this on the national forum, no luck...

BTW, My 2006 2.5i wagon has 20mm front and 13mm rear, hopefully this helps out.
(I have a whiteline 22mm in the mail as I type)

I have the front and rear sway bars from an sti which are both 20mm. Will they both bolt right up with my stock endlinks and all the stock hardware? cause im reading this thread and Angrytoaster says they will fit and then someone else said they wont. I have a MY98 and I did not read anything about 98's so i wanted to make sure.

i wanna put a 20mm on the rear of my 05 rs, what year/model subaru fits?
Easy answer: anything for WRX or RS, year is not an issue.

Does anyone know what the sway bar sizes on an '00 Forester L are? I'm guessing same as the RS (19/13), but can anyone confirm?

The STi RSB fit my '01 2.5RS and '01 Forester S without a single issue. If you are basing your statement of "correctly" on the fact that the mount point is on the outside of the end link... that has no bearing on how the geometry of the sway bar works.

STi RSB will not fit non-STi Imprezas correctly.

Just saw this. . . I hadn't come back in because a few days went by and there was no answer to my Forester question :lol:

But yeah, by "correctly" I meant "as intended by the designers and manufacturers." Semantics, really. :p

Personally I'd rather pick up a Cusco or Whiteline bar and have it meet up to the OEM-specified points, than jimmy on an STi part for simplicity's (or frugality's) sake. The STi bar may still work, but I haven't seen anything factually proving or disproving the existence of any issues or long-term ill effects (although if this has been done, please point it out). When I look at the info available, it all adds up to an uncertainty for me, and I'd consider that a compromise instead of correct installation. Not a large compromise, mind you - just enough of one to dissuade me from running one for the time being.

I just got an offer for a 17mm 2006 WRX rear sway bar. I have 2.5 RS endlinks and a 1993 GF wagon. Will all of this work together?

1997 Legacy Outback
20 front
18 rear

Just installed these on my 1997 obs the other day. They are a direct swap, though the rear hangs a little further down than stock because it was designed to clear a larger gas tank.
