Glad I could help. I've got Whiteline's 22mm adjustable up front and a 20mm adjustable in the rear, both on their softest setting, and the difference is night and day. If you DO go offroad with the car, I've noted a huge increase in NVH with stiffer bars, which I'm told really stresses your endlinks, so check their condition when installing and replace/upgrade if need be. I kept my stock ones with no problems as of yet.

I have also read that it is a good idea to consider the age of your struts when upgrading sway bars, regarding the bar putting extra load on the struts. I'm running stock struts/springs with 185K miles on them with no issues so far. Recently made the swap to '04 STi struts/springs, but I don't feel much of a difference in the handling, so it might not be necessary to upgrade them at all.
