I used to have 18mm rear bar on my 98 Legacy GT, but I took it off and get the Cusco bar which is about 19~20mm.

After changing to Cusco, the car has less understeer than 18mm bar. Occassionaly, you will feel teh tail is stepping out, but it is easy to correct with a dip of throttle.

btw, I still have my 18mm rear bar from SPD.
Anyone interested buying it?

I was gonna order front and rear swaybay but it cost about $150-200 for the shipping. So I have another solution. I'm finding the bushing for the swaybar now, I know some shop around Seattle that can make. I talked to him, he told me it will cost about $100 each. Any size. However, I asked Mike(SPD) he said our car has good swaybar set up already, so I don't think you need to worry about it.

Talking Sway Bars

Ok, here is a new one. I have the 92 Sport Sedan, it has the 18MM rear sway bar. has anyone put a larger one in?? I see that MRT has a 20MM. I believe that would make the rear a little more "spirited", what do you all think??

Who is the shop? Are they bending bars or making bushings? I need a bigger bar for the 2k wagon and no one is selling one yet.

They are bending bar. They are in White Center area, Seattle. Actually, they do steel structure and exhaust system.

R u in Seatlle Area? If you are, it can be done. You have to leave the car with them about 2-3 hours, they will use your old sway bar to be a pattern and make a new one. If you are not in Seattle, you can go to any shop that can do steel structure. They probably can do it but you have to have your own bushing. Anyway the shop name is BlackSmith.

euroauto, You are in Tacoma area. So I think you can try on South Tacoma way, it should be the shop can do it. Or you can ask Turbo Technology, they know who can do it. Also if you willing to drive to Kent, there is one shop Stan's Muffler, they make the exhaust and roll bar for race car. One more question, do you own the shop that has performance parts upgrade for Cororado G60?

Thanks! I'll give them a call. As for the shop no, I did have a shop but it was an import car electrical repair shop in South Tacoma.
