Default Swaybar Installation Questions - 2001 Legacy

Hi all! I did some rough measurements and came to the conclusion that my old 18mm swaybar from my 95 Impreza MIGHT fit, so I was trying to take off the 2001 BH wussy bar to see. Bushing brackets were no problem, but I could not get the endlink bolts off. So I came here in mid-installation, did a search, and found a very cryptic ascii drawing in an old thread describing an allen key hole that you use to hold the nut still. Anyhow, does anyone have a better description/picture of said allen key hole?

If the Impreza bar does not work, I am going to get an IPD anyhow. IPD said their customers reuse the stockers and they have had no problems...so there must be a way to get them off!! I sincerely appreciate any help!

Kevin

Found my cryptic drawing, eh?

Yeah, you just need to stick an allen key/wrench into the end of the bolt. The bolt is hollow and using the key will hold it in place while you use a box end to undo the bolt.

Good luck.

they're both right. before I knew of that drawing, I used a hacksaw to get mine out
oh well, I had whiteline endlinks going in anyways.
FWIW, a cheap upgrade is to find an outback swaybar. thats 18mm, IIRC...
I have the older whiteline 20-22-24mm RSB and have it set on 22mm. IMHO, 18mm would be no where near enough.

Correct, although a 90-94 one will work correct? I recall the whiteline number being the same for mine and a BC. This might have ben the front bar however.

Weird, I guess I am wrong, Could've sworn when I bought mine it shared one of the bars (front or rear) with an earlier legacy. Hmm, must've been smokin that day.

Oh well.

It has the same front bar according to above (pdm) as the 1999 BD/BG front bars. (Although I think that is a mistake as the 1999 in Australia is the 2000 here.)

Before I crawl under it again, does anyone remember what size allen key was used?

Tora, will the front Whiteline bars fit? Since the U.S. didn't have a turbo Legacy and I doubt the Baja-T is the same as a JDM Legacy turbo.

FRONT:
Non turbo
BSF14 22mm fixed
BSF14Z 22mm adj

Turbo
BSF15 22mm fixed
BSF15Z 22mm adj

These are the P/Ns I was given recently rears:

Rear (ALL)
BSR12 18mm fixed
BSR12X 20mm fixed
BSR12XZ 20mm adj
