Default STI sway bars vs WRX sway bars

Are the sti bars any larger/stiffer than the wrx bars? Noticeable improvement?

I'd like to keep all OEM parts on the car (yea, I'm weird). After having a "slammed" car for a few years, I'm happy with the fist-wheel-gap on my '05 wagon but would like to throw in a few things to stiffen up the ride and handling for autoX.

Are you talking about the STI bars that come on the car or the pink ones you can buy? Just buy the pink ones. You can get a 20mm OEM rear swaybar for cheap also.

Just start with a rear swaybar from an 02-03 WRX sedan

If you're autoxing it's going to be hard to stay OEM though, and a rear swaybar will punt you from stock.
