Smile So at 80K miles, what bushing need to be changed?

I'm thinking of some new bushing for my car, it has done 80k miles (04 impreza) so what to look for? cuz I can feel that there is some body roll when I go hard on corners
I mostly drive in a spirited way on touges, going and coming back from work and I do some autoxing

my only mod is megan coilovers

How many miles on the coilovers? If you are feeling more body roll you might start with making sure the coils are still living and don't need to be rebuilt. Then I'd look at swaybar endlinks and make sure they're still intact. Those are the two biggies for body roll.

ummm I only did 10k miles on my coilovers, and I'm really happy with them, but I want the car to be more stable at hard cornering, that why I want to change the old OE bushing for more fun

usually a "soft " feeling comes from worn shocks. In your case coilovers.

Did you check the sway bar bushings and sway bar link condition as mentioned above ? Going to an aftermarket sway bar link is a good way to get a bit " tighter" feeling.

you could put on stiffer control arm and lateral link bushings. Also swaybar bushings and solid endlinks if you haven't already.

I recently put on kartboy solid endlinks and they really livened things up. Right now I'm trying to find some whiteline swaybar bushings so I can put on a bigger front bar, and I would eventually like to replace all the lateral link and control arm bushings.

I think superpro bushings are easier to press in than noltecs or group N because they're three pieces. Well, the front control arm bushings are anyway.
