Default 06' STi Front and Rear Stock Swaybars

I was wondering if the front and rear stock swaybar from a 06 STi would fit my 99 legacy GT??? Also if it dose would it make that much of a difference? Thanks,

Kelsey N.

front won't fit because it's specific for the turbo crossmember. I'm not sure about the rear, I do know that it fits imprezas of the same vintage as your car. It would make a HUGE difference as the 20mm (AFAIK) rear sway is much stiffer than your stock 13-16mm bar (unsure of actual size, but it is very small).

what if he gets a cross member from a WRX or STi though? anyone know if it will fit then?

as far as the rear, if that one won't work, you can always go with a '97-'99 outback rear sway, which is an 18mm unit.

no neither will fit. The front bar gets in the way of n/a exhaust, and is the wrong length/width. The rear bar is also too wide because the STi has different lateral links.

I have a turbo crossmember and I'm running a Perrin WRX front swaybar.

Running the turbo x-member precludes you to use the turbo front swaybar too.

so then from what i gather, the WRX front sway will work if you also swap to a WRX crossmember, but the STi one just won't fit period?

WRX wagon, sedan, and STi swaybars are all different lengths I think. Unless you swap crossmembers and control arms for that correspoding car, the swaybar will not line up with the endlinks.

WRX wagon control arms are the same as gc arms but the wrx front bushings are wider.

People have gotten STi and Tribeca (25mm n/a) bars to fit on a narrower tracked car by putting the swaybar on the outside of the endlinks. As long as the links are vertical and it doesn't rub I don't see that being too much of a problem.

ok, swapping the cross member to install a sway bar is ridiculous. That's a hell of a lot of work, time, and potentially money wasted, since you also have to get a cross-member and will need an alignment afterwards. Not to mention that I think the diameter of his front sway bar is already 19 or 20mm, so an STi bar would not be an upgrade. If you want less front roll, why not do it the simple way and get an aftermarket GC sway bar? they fill fit with no modifications and are available in a variety of diameters. I'm pretty sure that a wrx/sti sedan rear sway will fit and some came in 20mm diameter, which makes a hell of a big difference over the stock 13mm bar.
