Just got a STI - Swaybars??

Hey guys well I picked up a 06 STI love it... My question is this I have searched and found alot on swaybars but wondering which ones to go with. I was thinking of Whitelines 24mm front and rear with Endlinks or the Hotchkis Comp kit. I will do some autoX but mainly its my DD and I have alot of twisty fun roads where I live so I really want to stiffen up the suspension for that. Which bars should I do? Also are the ALK needed on the STI? Thanks for the help

With AutoX'ing nice thick front and rear sway bars are good to go (with end links)...but coil overs will really stiffen the ride up a lot and make those twisty's fun as well.

I think 24mm adj bars front/rear would be a good place to start w/ a STi- gives you lots of options for tuning

if your thinking about autox then skip the ALK- it's bumps you into a prepared class (and I don't mean street prepared)- that's not a class you can be competitive in.

thoroughly (and I mean very thoroughly) research class allowances, I see lots of folks bolting on all sorts of bits/pieces only to find at a later date it knocks them out of the class they would like to compete

Yeah Check your class restriction, it can be frustrating to not compete in the class you expected. But both Cobb and Perrin make great 25 mm products, You really want spherical bearing endlinks from either Cobb or Perrin.

Good luck!
