Is it better to have equal strength sway bars? Or is it better for the rear to be weaker than the front?

I think it is all driving preference. I think having equal sized sway bars would make the car more neutral if anything. Right now I would like my car to steer better, I feel like even with the 16mm sway it came with (which is more then the base model has aka no RSB) it wants to push or plow as some people call it. What sold me on the perrin vs. the 19mm subaru upgrade is the perrins 3 different adjustable settings. But I am also adding a front strut tower bar so that should keep the front a little stiffer then the rear. I honestly dont have any expirence doing this myself but I have been around racing my whole life so I have a decent understanding of it. Guess I will find out when I get the parts installed.

Car is sitting at the dealership having some accessories installed. Unfortunetly, they ordered some of the wrong parts (wrong color). So, I'm stuck with a loaner Forester for the weekend. Here's a pic I took of the Sport on Long Island last weekend.

Yeah, mine's a base model. Added a stock sway bar to it because someone else was upgrading. Now I'm looking to upgrade my suspension, tighten things up!

Define "nice". I see plenty of Imprezas on this thread that I would consider "nice", but if you're somehow not seeing that... I have to question what qualifications that must be met for you to think that a car is "nice" or not.

Just got the new wheels put on my Impreza guys here's some pics!

18x7.5 Enkei Performance G5 wrapped in 225/40/18 Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric All Seasons. I went with all seasons because I wanted the tread life compared to performance summers.







And the new Perrin Front STB!

I did the Perrin front STB (see pics directly above). Noticed only the very slightest difference. It feels a little stiffer but not by much. I didn't expect it to make much of a difference though they are *mostly* for look. I will be doing the rear sway at some point. Where are you getting the Perrin Sway bar from though? I do like it compared to the Subaru offering but the Perrin is also another like $300 lol.

Those look FANTASTIC on your car! Pretty noticeable difference with the Perrin sway?

Thanks for the compliments I appreciate it. I dont have the sway bar yet just the front strut tower brace, which doesnt make a big difference no. But it does feel a little bit stiffer up front

The flapatax are not flexible like the UR RAs, instead theyre similair to hard thick plastic. Whether this is good or bad, we will see.

don't think it will make a diff, if they are hard plastic then they are similar to the oem guards only much better. So I guess you only have the wheels left

Still stock, for now. But after returning from hiking yesterday, I gave it a good wash to remove all the bug splatter from the bumper and hood, and thought I'd grab a few shots of the Impreza and early Spring.
