Enjoy the bar... I love mine, would even have a hard time driving it without it. If you go to the autocrosses, make sure to get used to the bar first since you don't spin in the corners... I use it to my advantage to come through them nice and sideways, though we'll see how it goes after I get tires/suspension on the car.

If you plan on staying without suspension or good tires (or even with good tires) I suggest you invest in some rear endlinks - it makes the car much more controllably predictable.

Question

Wheres the website for this bar?
How much does it cost?
I haven't modded anything yet on my car (Performance wise) and this would be my first mod. Would you say this is a good choice to start? Can I handle 18mm? How exactly does it change driving (yes I'm a newbie). Thanks for any and all info.

burr101: keep in touch, I found driving something new altogether with the install of this bar. Thanks to Alex(scoobyshag) and Brian for the install and company!

John2.5RS: unfortunately, during my move to my new apartment, my trunk monkey is MIA. ISO: White trunk monkey, with a slight right ward lean, and one partially opened bananna in it's paws. Answeres to "little mongo!"

Andrew: The rear sway bar is by far, the most touted and most recommended first mod to do to an Impreza. The whole concept of "point and shoot" as stated in an old issue of TMRmzine if never more evident till you drive your baby with her rear stiffened to a 20MM setting!

Andrew - 18mm will be good for daily driving as it lets your car be more forgiving. 20mm is for the advanced everyday driver. 22mm is for the track, unless you're me, then it is your everyday setting.

No, you can use the stock ones, you will just have to be more gentle with the car. The stock ones stretch like a rubber band so they recoil when they are stressed. I've found that controlling the rear end in corners with solid links tends to be much more predictable whereas if you want to really slide and you can counter the cars maneuvers well, the stock ones will help with that since it'll 'snap' your car into sliding.

I purchased mine from Teague's and found his service to be excellent. Will be going back soon for some more goodies in a couple of weeks!
