Rear sway bar brackets with 20mm bar
So i picked up a 20mm rear sway bar (bushings included) for my 2.5i. My question is, do I need bigger brackets or can I get away with stockers? Not sure what's the dia on a stock bar...

Get the AVO rear sway bar reinforcement brackets. I'm running the AVO RSB reinforcement brackets with a JDM 20 mm hollow RSB. (USDM RSB is 16 mm solid on Legacies and 15 mm solid on Outbacks.) The stock RSB mounts are really wimpy and you don't want to break one.

^Thanks for the tip friend, that was one of the items I picked up with the bar and end links of course :)

Looks like I'll need to pick up a 20mm bushing brackets in this case...

I've been running the 20mm jdm bar for a couple years without the braces.

No need to replace the bushing brackets. They give you new bushings that fit the stock brackets just fine.
