I've read a few threads on here and I just wanna make sure I got this right... I know the 2010 2.5i doesn't have a rear sway bar, is there a place to install the endlinks for them or would there be welding involved?

All you need is the sway bar, end links and installation hardware. There is no welding involved. Everything bolts right into place.

The rallitex sway bars seem to the the one to get for the 2.5i, I'm looking into putting a set on my 2011 OBS.

I just put the rallitek 22 mm front and 19 mm rear sway bar on my 2008 2.5i hatch. The hardest part of the whole installation was definitely getting off the original front sway bar. After that the rallitek ones were really simple to put on.

The Outback Sport and 2.5i are, pretty much, identical for everything except the wheels and the paint. When you look for aftermarket parts, look under the 2.5i, you will almost never find anything specifically for the OBS.

I have the Rallitek sways for the 2.5i on my '09 Outback Sport and they are great!

Does it handle a lot better with just the rear ralliTEK sway bar? Or would you recommend the front and rear kit?

For daily driving, would you say the 22mm front/ 19mm rear would be suitible? I saw track spec that were 25mm front/ 22mm rear for a WRX.

I have the option of going with a rear only at 19mm with the stock, and I rear/saw on NASIOC that the 2011 OBS had a front at around 17-18mm? Or I can do the front at 22 and rear at 19? What is more geared toward better handeling daily driver?

I really like my 22F/19R set up from Rallitek on my car. Prior to the Rallitek set up, I had an OEM WRX rar sway bar (i think it was 18mm?) on there and it alone was a BIG improvement over stock handling. If you don't want to invest a ton of money, then I would go with a used WRX rear sway.

I guess I'll try that set up...$300 isn't that bad compared to other projects I could be doing. Thanks for the reply.

Default install cost?

Any ideas what it would cost to have sway bars and endlinks installed at a garage?

Isn't this bushing bracket installed upside down? The tab should be pointing up and inserted into the hole above the bolt... no? The G on the bracket should be right side up...

+1.
I can't be bothered doing the install myself either. I live near Rallitek and emailed them for an install quote. I'll let you know they come back with. I'm going to be installing both front and back in my '11 2.5i. -Ed

thanks ejhayes76 --- look forward to hearing the price quote for installation --- I probably don't have the right tools and I might install it wrong -- sounds like it's 2 hours at most.

Reply from Rallitek:

Cost for the install labor for sway bar kit 40-1023 is $125. We are out of stock of the sway bar kit at this time but should have them available after the first of the year.

Thanks for the inquiry -

Not a bad price, but if the install is anything like I've seen in various videos on line, it's 20-45mins tops to do the rear bar with basic hand tools and a torque wrench. Here's a video on how to do the front and rear bars:
