cobb sway bars quick ?

So I know they go for the same price on cobbs website, but will the STI front and rear cobb sway bars fit on a wrx? I might hook up a GOOD deal on a pair of brand new front and rear sway bars and the strut bar from craigs list for 250, brand new never installed...but they were bought for a 06 STI and I have a 06 wrx. Thanks in advance. Z

Subaru WRX and STi front strut bars, Cusco and GT-Spec, JSC Speed

according to the site only a few will fit

i think u have to adjust the ac bracket for others to fit. i know of heard of others with other brands on their 06's and 07's

rollin on 17's now and they're dirty

I think the strut tower bar is for the rear....what about the sway bars, will they fit? Same product for STI and WRX?

According to Cobbs website the part numbers are different between the STI and WRX sway bars that they offer.

STI: CobbTuning.com - Tubular Anti-Sway Bars

WRX: CobbTuning.com - Tubular Anti-Sway Bars

I'm pretty sure I've heard of people putting STI sway bars in there wrx's, i dont get it. I'm super bumed anyways, even if they would fit...when I told my wife I was buying them she ripped me a new one so I cant even get them anyway. SUCKY. Lesson learned...again...check with your wife before you buy shit for your car. I'm still gonna call cobb tomorrow and find out about the different part #'s and fittment. Z

I'm pretty sure the front is the same on the WRX Sedan and STI.

The rear STI bars mount differently. You'll notice the endlinks for STI are different. They are straight rather than the C shape the WRX uses.

Well, called cobb today. ^^^ is right. The front sway bars are identical for the STI and WRX, but the back sway bars are shaped differently and will have fittment issues. So it wouldnt have worked out anyway. It seemed to good to be true...it would have been if I had a STI, the stage one cobb kit sells for 550 bucks, and this guy is letting the whole thing go for 280 shipped!! Its still brand new never installed. Oh well. Z

Despite popular opinion I know a thing or two.
