Question What? No instructions?!

I just got the swaybar and my husband is installing the Whiteline BSR12XZ right now. He got the old swaybar off and needs instructions as to installing the new one please.
Thank you,
Heather

Heather, Should be very simple swap, but if the issue is which set of holes to use, start out with the ones closest to the ends of the bar. That will be the softest setting, and you can easily change to stiffer setting as you become accustomed to the changes. hope that helps. Happy 4th to you and the family!!

Thumbs up He thinks he got it

He thinks he can figure it out. It is harder then we thought. I wish I could help but Sara is sick and I must attend to my child.

Any special torque to the bolts? He think 15 pounds. Is this right?

Also, with the swaybar at 20mm- the holes on the end- should he change the tire pressure at first to compinsate for the 21mm front and 20mm in the rear? We are concerned about the "twitchy butt" syndrome. Should the tire pressure then be 32 front and rear to balance, since more in the front and less in the rear helps reduse understeer. Now with the larger bar in the rear, we might want to reduce oversteer? Or no?

Any tips for installation? I went to www.Whiteline.com.au and only found the MRT Training WRX book there that we got as a mistake instead of the swaybar at first. It was a good book. They took it back already. At least I completed the suspension chapter.

I will give a detailed account of the swaybar's handling after we drive it later today. I will be careful!

Default Specs

Torque for the bolt through the bar and end-links is 32.5+-4.4 ft-lb
For the mounts that hold the bar/bushings 18+-3 ft-lb
I found these values for the Impreza and figure they'll be about the same.
I would think you should leave the tire pressures as they were to gauge the difference the bar makes. They're easily adjusted later.

Talking No twithy butt!

I was careful, then I pushed it hard around corners. The butt never became twitchy at all. I believe there is no way to make it oversteer even if I tried! I do like the results, but it is not the be all end all I was hoping for. See the review I wrote in another thread.
