Q-Rack - Quick Steering Rack for 1998 and up Imprezas

Not cheap but everyone that does it seems to really like the way the car handles. You could also get a steering rack from an STi. They have a tighter radius than your WRX.

STi steering ratio is 15.2:1
Standard WRX's steering ratio of 16.5:1

The Evo is like 13:1

Don't know if one of these would work or not. There are several kinds.

For a modest result and modest price, you can get steering rack bushings from Whiteline, but no where will it be near the quickness of an STi or Evo for that matter.

+1 for the Whiteline steering rack bushings. I put those in along with a Whiteline ALK (Comfort version) about a year ago and it made a nice difference in steering feel and response (much better than stock IMHO).
