Whiteline 22 mm Rear Anti-Sway Bar et al for an '04 WRX

Picked up a copy of the Subaru Performance Handbook, and with it going to be putting a little precision into the handling of the WRX going forward, as follows:

1. Whiteline 22 mm Rear Anti-Sway Bar, and
2. Energy Suspension Master Bushing Kit.

Part of the "Performance Fundamentals" approach to improvements I want for the Rex.

Why do they suggest the 22 and not the 24?

The performance shop suggested that the 24 mm front and back sway bar combo I originally wanted was more suitable for a WRX that was tracked 8 or more times a year.

So I'm going with the 22 mm front and back combo instead.

Decent size bar, 24 is overkill..

I found an install video - even though it`s for an `08 STi.

I do not envy you having to replace all those bushings. I had the 2nd edition of that book. Good information.

My performance shop [Touge Tuning] says for the ES master bushing kit, the lateral links and front control arms bushings should be done at a shop. Also the shift stabilize isn't too bad but can take time if doing it on stands.

I'm going to try to do the rest myself.

It's winter time here, so this'll be my spring project. I'd take my time and do the bushings in stages, but likely need a performance alignment again when they are all installed, so will have to keep this in mind with the planning.
