Guys, I need help bad. Wanted to upgrade sway bars, got the end link nut almost off then the Allen key stripped. Said **** it I'll take the other side out before I get up to cut it out. Passenger side nut is stripped and can't get a grip on it. As it sits now, half an end link hanging and no roll bar

i have played with sway bars on my 11' wrx for the last month. I have a whiteline 24mm front and 22mm rear, the 24mm front on soft with 22mm on full stiff still feels understeery. So i took the 24mm front off, looking to maybe add a hole on the front stock swaybar make it a 21mm and put the rear on medium maybe..

I feel like with the rear on full stiff, was too much, causing the rear to be less accommodating to the road.

thought not to use my kartboy endlinks on the stock bar but now im going to put those back on the front stock sway as well.

I started off with the rear bar upgrade on medium and it was more oversteer.

i did some other research on the net. from what i found, seems like there is a big debate vs. having spring/shocks, vs. just trying to save money and do swaybars only, as i did. since i have another car ready for the track and this is more of my DD. which i want to do one track day. Road course. no auto-x - which might i say, seems where more of the swaybar suggestions come from on size.

going back to the research point,. stiffer sway bars tend to tie your suspension together making it less independent. and the argument is body roll should be adjusted with better shocks, instead of sways. and stiffer springs hold the pitch of the car. Also talk about the sway bar taking away grip to reduce body roll?

So going too stiff on just swaybars with no other upgrades, may promote the car to slide out more abruptly. As i was noticing this on flat turns, and maybe off camber turns, when i just had the rear 22mm on medium. and stock front swaybar.

When i dialed the car back down, with just having the rear 22mm set on soft with stock front sway bar i got quicker corner exit on the sweepers, offramps. but maybe less faster corner entry.
