    Noobtastic question.... :P

    Hello, hope everything is well.....

    anyways, i was just wondering, would a lonely front strut bar do anything at all on 5dr? Just got got my front strut bar from subaru stil waiting on the rear one, would putting it in by itself do anything? btw rear and front sway bars go in in a week!

    It's been long discussed on the 02-07s that the strut brace doesn't do much of anything in the front, but makes a difference in the rear. Some people install them just for looks though!

    It hasn't been really talked about with the 08/09s. It's like we took two steps back in the tuning world with you all because they changed the platform so much.

    Install them separately, and do a before and after "Butt Dyno" test. Then let us know how you feel about them!

    The Anti-sway/Anti-roll bars... those will make a world of difference. You'll love them.

    Lol.. I hope you know what i meant by butt dyno

    It's pretty much ID10T proof. Just unbolt 3 on each side, and rebolt them. Possibly bend an AC line out of the way depending on brand. That's it.

    Let us know if you feel a difference!! 99% of the info on here is learned from other's experiences

    lol, tbh no, at the time i read it i didnt know what a butt dyno was, although i do know what a dyno is..... on your reply you said butt dyno with a smily, so i inferred its just riding the car(with your butt in it..) out and see if theres a difference....

    am i right? lol

    hmmm I cant say I felt a difference with the front bar on my 03 but a little with the rear. Just as Sinister said though the anti sways made a huge difference

    Congrats on your first mod now that I think about it, that was the first "mod" I did by myself too! But now at this point I believe I have pulled and installed everything but the block
    Carpe Diem!

    aight so got up this morning and drove to work.... I can't say its a totally different car or anything like that but it does kinda feel a bit tighter over bumps and non-aggressive turns, btw mines an 08...

    God, i cant wait till saturday, it's gonna be like going into the dealer and walking out with different car... Front and back sway bars go in so does the boost gauge and the invidia n1 CB... CANT WAIT!!
