Default Quick question about swaybar

Hi, I just want to ask a stupid question really fast
I have a chance to get a set of front and rear sway bar in good price
one set is cusco 22mm front and 22-24mm rear
another set is progress 22-23mm front and 22-24mm rear

I only street and daily drive my car, I don't track or race...

which set up is better or are they the same?

should I get cusco or progress?

Thanks!

You might want to do a bit more research...but a bigger front swaybar will definately make the car feel much more planted and stable. But if you're torn between the two...I couldnt say I've heard bad things about either. Neither of those are aggressive setups, so just take whichever one you can get a good price on. Word of advice...get some aftermarket endlinks for the rear at the least.

Since I've heard the cusco doesn't required to lube the bushing, I think that's cool

But how often do we actually have to re-lube the bushing once we have installed them?

and I think the cusco 22mm one is not adjustable, will a 22-23mm adjustable do better (since I want to set it to 23mm) or 22mm is actually enough for daily drive?

I have heard good thing about the whiteline 27mm fsb. but I really thing that's too big for my taste so I think under 23mm is good enough for me

only thinking about stay with 22 is good enough or 23 is better?...

Thanks a lot!

I think the recommended is either once every 6 months or once every year. My cobb bars are 1x a year. Like I said, a larger front bar will definately increase that front end grip. It wont be too much for the street....I say go for it.

Not sure on the brands but, 24mm front and 22mm rear with stock springs on a daily driver is awsome and isnt going to be TOO stiff where the wheels get light around corners and have a possible slide out ..

im running that set up (whiteline though) and i cant be any happier, i can take corners like noones business

oh and its a good idea to get some beefy front and rear end links and rear mounts..It will prevent the new sways from bending the stock stuff which isnt hard to do

20mm front and rear unless its a wagon, which has a 17mm rear.

You are going to need rear end links as well. Stockers are plastic junk that you can flex with your hands.

This applies to the 02 WRX the guy above me is asking about.

thanks for the info^

I am thinking about going 22mm F&R, with Cusco sways + kartboy F&R endlinks. Would I see any difference with that setup? Right now I have stock struts with prodrive springs which are supposedly 25% stiffer than stock. Would 24 for the front/rear be too aggressive? This is my daily drive, only do occasional drag strip run(s), no auto x. Anyone has 22mm sways installed?

I don't think 24mm would be too stiff for a daily driver. I have a whiteline 22-24 front and progress 22-24-26 rear with both set to 24 and it feels great. It is always better to start off with the lowest setting on the rear, because snap oversteer can really ruin your day.

As someone already stated, make sure you get solid endlinks to eliminate the slop and improve feel. You want to know what is going on in the rear and that will help a lot.

I think I will get the progress one because it's cheaper and has the extra mount

Just one more question, is front endlinks important in this case? or should I just get the rear? I have the kartboy rear but thinking about getting the front one too..

The front is just as important, so I would get them. I have the whiteline solid front endlinks and they work great.

I just ordered and recieved some whiteline 22mm adjustable fronts and rears. The front adjust 22 & 24mm, the rears 22, 24, 26mm. Based on research, i'm doing 24mm in the front with 22mm on the rear. Plus i've upgraded the endlinks too. If you want, PM me and i'll let you know what i think of the new setup. I may not install them until i get back from my vacation to Brasil, so it could be a month or so.

If i were you, i'd go with the adjustable combo just so you have options as to how the car will handle.
