We just picked up a 2013 Impreza Sport Premium w/CVT for the wife today.


Can't wait to start modding it.

I was told specifically the 2011 STi rear sway bar, I'm not sure about other model years though. So I would get the 2011 rsb if I were you.

I am pretty sure any 08+ STI bar will work.

I think the pre-11 STI rsb are less than 19mm so I would double check on the size. Our OEM 12/13 Impreza is 15mm so I wouldn't spend more than a sixpack for a used 16-18mm one unless you are going to install it yourself.

Correct, If you're going to do it do it right. Cheaper than OE and adjustable 22mm to 26mm

The only thing i didnt like about Progress was the weight, they are solid steel and weigh a ton. So if that's a concern... but it made my FXT and Impreza wagon dance through the corners. Very tail happy.

I found a local guy who wants to sell his to me for 100. I offered 50. He said I should just buy a new one. I said a new one goes for 96. Lol

I'm working a deal with another guy. Hopefully he agrees to 50.

Why did he even bother? Good luck with your search.

Good question. He tried to pull a fast one on me or he's that cheap. Wants to maximize his dollar.

That's EXACTLY what I think! I love the rest of the car though and I can't wait until my order comes in next month, but damn! I don't hate the rear, but it could flow a lot better than it seems to. Glad to see I'm not the only one!

The rear looks great at an angle but dead on...not as good. IMHO.

Just pulled the muffler off mine just to see what it would sound like. Gotta love the boxer engine! It's quite loud on mine so I think I'll just put it back on for now until I can think of a better solution.

Agreed.



I wasn't a big fan of the 2012 Impreza at first but the wagon grew on me. Maybe I am biased. I love me some wagons.


I bought my 2010 STi SE 19mm sway from here. That was a couple years ago though.
