Default Pitching Stopper Rod - Purpose

I noticed on the www.spt.subaru.com site a part called a pitching stopper rod for the '04 STi. What is the purpose and how does it work?

The pitch stop rod is there to stop the "front/back" movement of the engin. The STi already has the hardend one. It is located under the intercooler.

All boxer Subbies from the recent past have a pitch bar, sort of shaped like a bone. With just two engine mounts (and a tranny mount much further back), the engine would be able to wander even more in on/off throttle situations. IMO these engines move around a lot.

Yes, and it is the same as the one found in every Impreza since about 1996 . The one on the SPT site is the hardered durometer rubber Group N pitch stop, not the stock one.
