Hello everyone! I've not been posting in here much lately, but good news! I just recently had Whiteline adjustable rear swaybar and HD mounts installed. The overall feel is much tighter than with FHI 20mm Bar with the stock mounts. Now If I can just eek out some cash for the droplinks I'll have this phase done. soooo....if anyone is interested in doing this to their car I'd highly recommend it and don't listen to what people say about just going with an 18mm rear sway bar, our cars have a little more weight up top and the 20mm is very managable

Wow, you don't say. And here I thought going from 18mm --> 20mm would be a big deal. Have you tried the various adjustments then taken it out for a spin?

I am seriously considering trying an auto-x next year; I expect that as part of a novice class I'd be required to leave the car stock except maybe for tires, which means putting the 13mm bar back in and going with the balding Geolandars on stock 16"s rather than the 18mm bar and ??? (maybe RE730s) on 17" P7s. The mods may put me in a class far over my head.

Keep us posted!

Lark6-

Don't worry about the mods. You can run in street touring with those mods. You will be in over your head anyway, but I am sure you will have fun. I am from the area and campain a wrx in G stock. I also have a forester, but I do not autox it. January 26 there is a philly region autox. It would be a good first event. Pray for snow!

Have a Nice Day?

AWMIII: In 'way over my head, yes, but the shock value of seeing someone trying to auto-x in a Forester should be worth something, no?

I'm gonna have a lot to learn to auto-x successfully; I was hoping to find a performance driving school that would let me use my own car before I tried auto-x/rally-x. I recognize that a Forester will take far more care to fling around than an Impreza - or anything less tall and boxy for that matter. Still, I think it speaks volumes about the car that it can be flung around so nicely. Hard to believe anyone considers it an SUV, really.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Lark,
hey there! I've seen a pic of someone on here and on Edmunds that Rallycrossed their Forester, I think you'll do fine, the thing that gets me is what class would our cars fall into? if it's the SUV class I think you might do pretty well! Good luck in whatever you do and keep me posted.
