the '09-'12 wrx has a 16mm rear sway bar. the sti rear is 19mm. i am not positive about the stock front sizes though.

the spring rates for the '11-'12 wrx are the same as '09-'10, but there were improvements made to the dampers' valving to stiffen them up.

The 2011 WRX has 21 mm up front and 16 mm in the back. Front swaybar for 2011+ WRX is the same as the one in the STi.

Wider track & stiffer subframe bushings on the 2011 help, too.
