The strut bar for Impreza 2012 is not yet available. A lot of these is for 2012 WRX or STI but nothing for 2.0l.
I already go to Ultraracing at Candiac Quebec, Canada and they told me that they gonna contact with Ultraracing Malaysia for our model.

I hear that... $450 is a little ridiculous.

The Cusco one is made specifically for the NA 2.0i 2012 Impreza.

I picked up a 2011 OEM STi rear sway bar and had that installed already. It was quite a big improvement. Is it worth the upgrade to change the front sway bar?

I had contacted UR too as well, UR's products seem to be relatively cheap. I was told that there should be struts/sways being developed or released for July/August.

Would you happen to have a link to the Cusco dealer? The MSRP on various sites is listed at $334 US so $170 (plus shipping) seems like a good deal. How much was shipping anyways?

I liked the way that the RSB eliminated most of the understeer and less body roll while cornering.
My buddy changed both his SB before and it understeered but not as much as stock. So he put the original FSB back in and he likes it better because it almost 50/50.

Sorry made a mistake- Price is 180 US and Shipping to Alberta is 55 US ground fedex - shipping should be cheaper for BC address.

Has anyone put springs on yet?
Seems like Tiens are out, H&Rs are pre production(2-3mo out) and I think Eibachs are out also.
Tien - 1.5 all around (SKS92-AUB00 or SKS84-AUB00)
H&R - 1.4 F, 1.3 R (HR-54463)
Eibach - 1.5 all around (EB-7725.140)

H&R is still in pre production(R&D) but they are taking pre-orders. They wont be available for another 2-3 months.

Sorry if this has been covered already, but has anyone swapped their daytime running lights for LED bulbs? Did you maintain high beam function, and could you confirm correct bulb is 9005/HB3?
