they are by only changing the mounting hole, adjusting the levering on the torsion bar. I don't know if the diameter size always dictates the stiffness of the bar (aside from the levering).

Back to the question. I thought that the stiffening of the rear sways without adjust the front increased oversteer on our cars.

stock for stock the 11+ looks better.

the -10 with the carbon, lip, and FMIC looks more aggressive. but that's a lot of work.

How funny! I traded in a VW for a WRX, same year and color!

I still love the 04/05 GLI's. The interior, the 6 speed, the Recaro seats, the styling and the overall fun factor. It was the pinnacle of VW design TBH. I miss that car quite a bit to this day! If i ever had money to wipe my ass with, i would damn sure pick one up and rebuild/refresh to put in the stable. With the addition of a LSD lol

Yes, you are correct. But the end result is what i wish to achieve! Minus the -10. That **** is for the birds. Its 59 degrees outside, dry and cool

I just traded my 12 wrx for a 14 Mazda cx5 awd 2.5L. Everything was instantly better on the Mazda, accept acceleration/handling(obviously). so good

Holy **** man I was thinking the same thing last week when I was back home for the holidays. My mother let me drive her G37 - the clutch, steering wheel, and shifter require so much more force than my WRX. It also feels gigantic and heavy. The exhaust note is amazing, though, and the instant torque is awesome. However, she's never complained about it being too manly and she's 61 years old lmao.

Careful not to strip those lugs. I recommend buying taller ones. I stripped mine once and was the biggest pain ever.
