Default Looking for WRX Stock (20mm) Rear Sway Bar

Want to put it on my 02 RS. Prefer Halifax NS area. If not how about anywhere in the Maritimes? Anywhere in Canada as a final choice. Trying to keep cost and shipping cost down to make this a cheap mod.

Did you change the sway bar links as well?

Make that much of a difference?

NO i did not change the stock end links....only because i was not going with a huge sway bar. and YES it makes a HUGE difference in handling....cant wait until winter.

Did you buy a stock one? How much did you pay. I think a stock one is around 150 Canadian (20mm)

Did you only install a rear sway bar?

Lachute has several options for sway bars

becareful with a upgraded rear sway bar. at the track i found my car tail happy with the stock 13mm bar....... which is more than enough for me until i get stiffer springs/struts. you should really learn the limits of the stock suspension before you start upgrading.

i paid $151 cdn for my stock subaru 18mm rsb....IIRC the 20mm rsb was about $170 cdn.

Like i said before i just did the rear sway bar and just to 18mm.....i have NO plans on doing any suspension ungrades. i just wanted better handling and less body roll....and thats what i got. i also drove a 2001 chevy s10 Xtreme last winter on its stock crappy tires, now lets talk about tail happy. I dont forsee any problems with the 18mm rsb. Just a little more fun if you ask me!!!

Call Subaru Lachute.... If I remember right, the stock 18 or 20mm rear sway bars are $125/each.....

Sure you have to pay shipping but then you only have 1 tax to pay.... With the sway bar...... I wouldn't worry about it.... Just go with a 20mm.....

Or if you want get an adjustable one.... it's $225/each....
