BTW guys, subaruparts.com has the WRX 20mm rear sway bar for $81 including shiping! (anythings better than the 12mm stock )
I think everyone with the new RS should get that, along with the drop in K+N which looks EXTREMELY easy to install! (Im getting one for my cous for his b-day )

Hmmm... I was told by one of the parts reps that posts on this board (it was either WRXGirl or Sugar) that the new RS has all the same suspension parts as the WRX, including the 20mm rear sway bar. You might want to check that out before you order one to replace it Wouldn't you feel silly if you went to put in the new bar and found it was exactly the same as the old one

Trust me, the rear bar on the 2002 2.5RS is a 13mm bar. I have measured it. I am going to buy a 18-22mm adjustable bar with polurethane bushings soon. The WRX bar is 20mm and has rubber bushings. That bar would help but I want to be able to tune it a little back there. The WRX bar will fit and any suspension components for the WRX will fit the RS but avoid 01 and earlier parts, they probably won't fit.

Why??!!

The geometry and suspension pick-up points are the same between the 2002 WRX and the 2002 2.5RS (sedans, I don't know about the wagon). The geometry was changed from the 2001 to 2002 models. The suspension links and roll bars got changed also. You can't fit a 2001 roll bar on a 2002. Struts?? I'm not sure about that either.

The only thing I can think of effecting the compatability of bars is the new wider width of the WRX. The RS has a 13mm and the WRX is a 18mm.

Yes I have a 2002 RS and it has a 13 mm rear
sway bar.The WRX has a 20mm sway bar and I
ordered that for my RS. Scott Williams
looked up the suspension part numbers for the RS and WRX and the stuts are the same
springs were different.
