Question 18mm sway bar on sti shock & eibach pro springs?

I had an 18mm sway bar upgrade on my stock suspension 01rs for over a year. Now I'm finally getting the sti ver5 shocks and an eibach pro kit. Will my 18mm sway bar be sufficient for this new setup, or do I need to go up to 20mm? thanks

Your car will still understeer with the 18mm bar, but probably not any more than it did with the stock springs. If you want it to handle more neutrally, get the 20mm bar.

I had the 18 on my RS with the Eibach springs and then with AGX struts too- and wished I had gotten the 20mm.
