    WRX sway bar upgrade

    Looking to upgrade the Rex to Racecomp Engineering's 25.5mm sway bar kit. Right now it's running the stock front bar, Cobb 22mm rear bar on the hard setting, Perrin front strut brace and Perrin endlinks. The car is a daily with some track and autocross in the summer. I like a mild oversteer bias and wondered what people thought of the RCE bar setup?

    And after going to that thick of a sway bar is it worth keeping the strut brace on?

    Any and all thoughts appreciated!

    That swaybar should be fine, though I don't have any experience with RCE bars. The front strut brace already isn't doing anything.. they're pretty much just for looks.

    I had heard that for track maybe a 25.5 bar was too thick, lifting the inside rear wheel on the harder corners but I can't do anything to the springs for height reasons so the only part I can really touch is the sway bars
