im sure a bunch of noobs are gonna chime in about how great swaybars are, but they are noobs and anyone who knows suspension tuning will tell you that you start with the dampers. and stock bilstiens are sh1t, get them revalved for track duty, get konis, or do coilovers.
Agreed. I've been instructing road racing for 10+ years. When I had my 05 legacy, first thing I did was konis. Then sti pink springs. Then whiteline 24mm bars f/r. But sways were last on the list.
