don't know if this has been covered, but i read somewhere that the '04 rear wagon sway bar is 20 mm now, same as the sedan. instead of 18 mm like in the '02/03

can someone confirm or dispell this please?

Dispell and it's actually 17mm. The sedan also went to this rear bar in 03. Evidently too many "events" w/ the 20mm bar, some people found out too late what throttle lift over steer is all about.

danx for the quick response

do ya know if the 02 wagon sway bars, f/r will fit on the '04?

if so, i guess i can sell my front to an '04 owner then, ;)

and maybe sell the rear to '03 an impreza L owner, hehe

The 04 wagon has the same size(17mm) sway as the 02/03 wagon. I think your stuck w/ your stockers unless someone who likes 17mm sways damages one. 02/early 03 Sedan owners w/20mm rear bars sold theirs to wagon owners who want a little stiffer in rear. 3mm is a pretty good amount actually.

You can sell 17mm rear bars to older impreza owners. I beleve the front bar is still 20mm but the rear bars on all 04 wrxs are 17mm. Oh and yes a 20mm bar from a 02 wrx will fit a 04.

endlinks?

So '04 owners get heftier mounts, but do they get heftier endlinks too? I looked under the car, and the enlink is pretty thick, but I don't know what the '02/'03 endlinks look like. It would be nice, since those almost double the price of getting a rsb.

I couldn't really tell by looking. It was black, but most stuff under the car is. I'll try to get a hand on it and see how cold it is, hopefully that'll help me tell.

The 04 GDA/GGA get the same sway links (platic C's), only the STi v8 gets the pillow ball setup- also a different rear lateral lnik and sway bar to make it all work together. The sway mounts are the same however.
