    First Post!

    Got a 2013 WRX in dark grey metallic and I'm loving every moment . Just a couple of things I notice right of the bat is the body roll and shifter feel even though i have the short shifter . Should front and rear sway bars and shifter bushings fix these two problems?

    Welcome!

    I am adding a Kartboy SS because of the throw and vagueness that the stock unit has. I am also going to do some sway bars after my power mods have been done cause I too hate the body roll

    The short shifter doesn't really do much to help with the feel.. upgraded bushings are where it's at.

    I agree with MainFrame that the SS doesn't help with the vagueness.
