Sorry for continuing off topic:

redobs:

The rear sits lower than stock, but the front sits even lower still. My stock springs sat almost 1-1/2" lower in the back than the fronts did. With RS springs, the whole car sits lower, and the difference front-to-rear is less. It's now about 1/2" lower in the rear than the front.

Gambit:

The rear RS springs are significantly stiffer than the stock Impreza L wagon springs. (Can't vouch for OBS). The difference in rear weight between an RS and a wagon is _maybe_ 75 lbs. A moderate subwoofer box probably weighs that much. So I doubt they will sag.

Disclaimer: All my info is based on my experience on my '97 L wagon, using 2000 RS springs and struts.

Any further questions, feel free to pm me, or even start a new topic. I hate to drag this one further off the original "rear bar" issue.

Semi-on-topic content: One of these days my rear strut bar from TRi will show up, and I can evaluate what differences it makes.

Jeff
