When I scroll down on that page and enter "2013 Impreza" into the drop-down fields, it says that those parts are not compatible.

However, yes, in general, you will need parts similar to those to complete the installation. What you're still missing is the clamps that mount over the rubber bushings (and the associated bolts to secure the clamps).

If I were you, I'd probably just install Subaru parts rather than aftermarket, using one of the online Subaru part supplier web sites. But that's just me.

Hope this helps.

Where can I find the hardware
If anybody is selling a OEM 19mm or 16mm for cheap let me know

You can have the 16mm off of my 2013 Impreza for the cost of shipping.
It's just the sway bar and the rubber bushings. No bolts, or clamps are included. IM me if you're interested.

If everyone is offering up there 16mm RSB I might as well join the party, but I'm in Canada so pm me if you would like the 16mm RSB with bushings.

So I just changed my oil and yet again, adding in 5 qts alone leaves me .4-.5qt low. Odd. I'm warming the car up, running to the store in my other car and will check again when I return, everything should have drained back down by the time I return. The spot I check the oil in is for sure level, I even verified it with a 4ft level.

The car holds 5.3 quarts, Agent Scully. You didn't uncover some big oil gnome conspiracy with Obama.


On another note, is anyone else consuming coolant very slightly? Say every 3 months I'm a cm below the low line with the car completely cold.

My coolant is low. Never noticed but assumed it was full when new. Just noticed it was low before last trip I was on.

they actually lowered the capacity to 5.1, I was just hoping to not have to crack another bottle. Oh well.

On the plus side I did drain out about 5qts

Well hopefully the added few tenths of a quart keep the oil cleaner longer than say a car with 4.6qts

i noted after a few months of ownership (2-3k) that i smelled coolant on occasion after stopping the car in the garage. inspection didn't suggest anything about at 8 months and about 7k, i had the car in for warranty work where i noted that the "resting level" of the coolant dropped from high to close to low.

they checked a lot of things out and found nothing (the service advisor was useless, the but the tech did due diligence with pressure checking, inspecting the heater core, etc) but didn't see any leaks. he topped it off, and now after another 8k, i have seen a much more modest change in level (maybe 1/4-1/3 between the lines and i still on occasion smell a hint of coolant.)

i'm going to keep an eagle eye on it through my 3 year warranty (i'm at 1.5 years now) at 15k.

You know the coolant is supposed to be at the low line when the car is cold right? It shouldn't be at the full line when it's not running and cold.

Good to know. That'll make it like my Tahoe then. The stamping in the head casting seeps thru the casting and it will smell a little when u first start up. It takes a while to notice any loss but I have had light on with it. The imp was almost in the low mark before my last 1500 mile trip and I figured I'd see the light come on, but after returning I checked and it's still at same spot. So I figure it'll have a slow seep like the Tahoe.

5qts, 12oz brought me up to the full dot exactly. It just doesn't make sense to me, normally that would put me 1/4"over full.

I guess I fill find out tomorrow after a 35 mile round trip excursion

Well after my little trip, oil is back to 3/16" over full, so next time I'm just trying 5 even and will go for a drive first before adding more

Could you theoretically lift an Impreza 3-4" and have a crosstrek for about $5000 less?

I think the price delta between an Impreza and XV is more like $1200 or $1800 or something like that. So it wouldn't be $5k less.

I got a little over 1 1/2 for a lot less I love it. Looks great and is functional. Don't think u could do much more without throwing drivetrain, suspension and brake likes way out of wack
