whoooaaaa, let me know how it goes...this may be another option rather than the Rallitek N/A front sway bar

Pawlwawl06 05-05-2009 08:32 PM

my rear bar now is whatever is stock on the GT. tomorrow, my 25mm perrin one will be here.

Hmm, you'll probably experience some oversteer with the car now. Perrin is a solid bar IIRC and OEM bars are usually hollow, so your front is probably equivalent to a 22-23mm solid bar. Anyhow, Ill wait for a review!

paint looks good and decal sets it off, although im sure most will nto see these minor, but very detailed additions youve made. do keep posted, as id like to hear how this ones gonna handle!

shtbxr22 05-06-2009 06:56 PM

well the rear 25mm one is in now. HOLY F---! mucho better. can still feel the slop in the front end. hopefully i'll get to tackle the front tomorrow or friday. i will keep you guys posted, and check out the difference.

Apparently the Whiteline 22mm solid FSB part# BSF35Z is for the 05-09 N/A Legacy as well...

I wonder what the Tribeca FSB costs??

"BEEF, its whats for dinner!" :eek:thats one solid rod ya got there sir! says its a Perrin 25 RSB??

shtbxr22 05-07-2009 04:30 PM

install complete, and only one modification needed to the tribeca bushing. everything else is just bolt on. total retail price for all the parts is $179.87
I paid less because I work at subaru, but this is the only 25mm bar you will ever find for our N/A cars. handling is much more flat, and reactive. go get one NOW!!!

yep, 25mm front, and rear now. :D

shtbxr22 05-07-2009 08:31 PM

by the way.......the rear bar measured 16mm. ha! my stock one was 15mm. 25mm is soooooo much better.

shtbxr22 05-15-2009 06:39 PM
