Default Need some info on sway bars/strut brace

Ok, I am at this point in my mods. From experience and personal use, Do I need a front and rear sway bar? Do I need a front strut tower brace? Who makes a good set up for our rex? Any info you supply is greatly appreciated.

How hard do you drive? Do you race? I drive aggressively on the street sometimes and it still is only a fraction of the stress placed on my car at an autocross or track day. I don't think anyone needs a strut brace for the street, in fact seeing how the tops of the struts are so close to the firewall I don't think they do much at the track either. Most people that say they do wonders for the car are probably trying to justify their own purchase. Now on the other hand you can't go wrong with some Whitelines. I just replaced both front and rear bars and the car has been transformed.

BlackGT, thanks. I do the daily drive to work thing. AutoX once a month. I think I will try the whitelines. I hear a lot of ppl use them. Where did you get your whitelines?

got mine from 4subaruparts.com

strut bar helped a lot on my wagon.
yes front strut help even the shock tower is close to the firewall, hey, our firewall can "flex"

swaybar would give you the most dramatic difference, then if you are anal, you can get endlinks and anti lift kit and all those suspension goodies
