Default Swaybar question

I am considering upgrading the swaybars on my 00 wagon. Does anyone have any suggestions on what type, and where to get them? I am trying to tighten up the body roll as I take corners and turns.

Take a look here:

I know Dale and he's a great guy. He and his dad have been working on Subarus since the FF-1 and early Leones back in the 1970s.

I don't know what size the stock bar is on a Legacy, but I'd say something between 18 and 20mm should be sufficient. Also look into getting a set of endlinks for the new swaybar. That way you can toss the crap factory links and get the most out of your new equipment.

Brief Info - Outback's traditionally have larger swaybar's than the other models(legacy). With the previous generation of Legacies, L's were @ 13mm, GT @ 16mm, and OB's @ 18mm. So the OB swaybar was a good upgrade for the L and GT's.

You'll have to go to 20mm or bigger for an upgrade on your OB, and Whiteline makes a great inexpensive swaybar.

Thanks sovereignmk1. I've been looking into the Whiteline adjustable sway bar- I believe it goes up to 22mm. I also think I will go with Matt's suggestion of changing the end links at the same time. I just have to figure out when I can do this. Hopefully soon, probably before the end of the summer.

I have an '00 OB wagon and put the Whiteline adjustable rear sway bar on. It is 20, 22, 24. I set on the first hole(20mm). Pretty easy to install, the hard part was getting the stock one out. You have to kind of snake it out past interferences. That setting is good, may try 22 sometime to see how it feels.

Mark,
AZP can always do your sway bar when you get it

Don't worry Mike, I plan on contacting you folks. Always good to have someone around who knows what they are doing
