Default Is 20mm too much?

I've got a whiteline adjustable 18-20-22 swaybar on my GT. It has been set at 18 since I put it on. Just wondering if any of you guys have ventured higher than 18 for onroad purposes. I'm guessing 20mm won't produce too much oversteer for me to handle, but I wanted to see your responses.

Thanks in advance
Pete

i've got mine set on 20mm. other suspension upgrades include tein ha coilovers, heavy duty front and rear endlinks, and front and rear strut tower bars. it's definitely more enjoyable to drive, but not to the point of being dangerous. a lot of things would have to go wrong for me to lose control on the street.

having said that, i'm going to make sure my sister knows what happens when you jam on the brakes in midturn before she borrows the legacy next week.

Thumbs up Drop and give me 20...

My Outback has one of these set to 20 (middle hole) on it. It has RS wheels and tires and Whiteline heavy duty front and rear swaybar links. I haven't been in any heavy rain or snow, but I definitely haven't had any problem oversteer with it. I may try 22 just to see what it's like. I didn't bother trying the 18 setting since stock Outback rear bars are 18.

Edit: I am running the RS wheels/tires because I am going to switch to regular Legacy KYB GR2s and lower the car.

stupid newbie question here... how does the endlinks improve things? if i had just the swaybar would i be making a mistake in not running endlinks as well?

i had the rear endlinks put on the same time as the sway bar, so it's hard to say. the fronts, though, are definitely worth the money. steering is somehow better, smoother, more direct. i don't know how or why, but the front endlinks are magical.

Default It doesn't make sense but...

I put my front endlinks on first since I didn't have my rear swaybar yet and I knew I would have to undo them if I put the rears on at the same time. I agree that the fronts seem to make a big difference, but I actually thought they decreased understeer (which doesn't make sense to me). You can get the full set pretty cheaply if you shop around, so I would get both front and rear. If you are only getting 1 set, get fronts.
