It looks like Ogden already answered the parts question.... so you should be all set. As far as the car 'feeling tighter' ... to me it just feels alot more solid going into and around corners... hard to explain really. I know what I mean, just not sure how to type it!

Hmm alright. Does that "tighter" feel have any draw backs like under/oversteer?

Or does it just feel more planted?

Also, is it really true that the impreza obs doesn't have a rsb at all? :0 I read it somewhere while doing some research.

I haven't experienced any under/oversteer yet... the bar has only been on a few days and I've just be driving back and forth to work. I guess 'planted' is a good description of how it feels

Yep, no RSB at all on the OBS...

About to purchase a stock 2010 wrx rear sway bar, It is confirmed to fit on an 08-10 impreza, correct?

Also a 2010 OEM exhaust should fit out 09's correct?

Thanks and sorry for all the newbie questions

I just installed the 19mm rear sway bar off the Sti on my wrx.. A lot better than the 16mm off of the 2010 wrx.

^Oh well. Ill give the 16mm a shot, because it will definitely be a night and day difference from what I hear, going from no sways to sways.

I read both WRX and STI front sways dont work because of the Turbo setup. like the exhaust manifold or something along that line gets in the way of the sways.
