Hey all, I just did the STI sway bar thing. I've got the base model, so I was starting with no rear sway bar. Here are my comments:
-Install was easy. I just did it in my driveway in the dark, with a headlamp. Drove each rear wheel onto a 2x4 to get a little extra room to work. Took around an hour, most of which was spent trying to jimmy everything into place. If I'd had a clue what I was doing and it was light out, it would have taken 15 minutes.
-Handling improvement is just as great as everyone says.
-I now get a "clunk" sound under aggressive cornering. Is this normal, or did I do something wrong and ruin everything? I think I'll double check on the torque specs tomorrow evening while it's still light out.
