Default SPECIFIC changes in 2011 for wrx

everyone knows about the basic stuff that changed (body, wheels, tires, rear subframe bushings etc), but what else has changed?
ive heard rumors about different strut top mounts, endlinks, sways.... stuff that may have not made a difference when driving or looking at the car, but changed enough to not allow '08-'10 aftermarket parts to work...

23mm? that would make it 2mm larger than the STi front sway. are you sure you measured right?

Accuracy of measurment aside, I think I recall looking at some specs for various impreza models and noting that it seemed the STi was given smaller sways. I didn't look into it to see if perhaps it was a typo, or maybe I wasn't reading it incorrectly.
