Default Do I need to lubricate all the ...

... the bolts' threads of the swaybar and strut tower upon installation? Would grease be okay or something else is better?

Would 215/55/16 and 225/50/16 tires fit perfectly with the OEM wheels of a 2000 Legacy GT?

You dont have to lubricate the bolts, just where the rubber comes into contact with metal, so that would be the mounting bushings and one side of the drop links possibly.

You could get away without lubing any of it, but you may get alot of squeeking.

You don't want to use a petroleum lubricant on rubber bushings - it'll disolve em. Poly bushings are fine, though.

As said you don't need to lubricate all the bolts but should use never-seez. You can't go wrong using it and should never have siezed bolts if used. As for tires you can fit both those sizes, but the 225 will be a little pinched on that narrow a wheel. It works much better on a 7 inch wheel.
