I've got the rear srt sway bar on my limited. You can feel the difference when cornering, even though it's not a huge difference in diameter. The srt sway bar links are also shorter than the non srt links. Until someone makes a bigger diameter bar it's the only upgrade at the moment.

Re: Stock non-SRT sway bar diameters

Spoke with eibach yesterday and they said sway bars are not high priority so don't expect them anytime soon or at all.

Re: Stock non-SRT sway bar diameters

On Subarus, most people change at least the REAR anti-sway bar. For instance, on my Legacy (GT with more STI and EVO greatness), I have the 20mm JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) anti-sway bar which dramatically altered the handling of the car. The OEM American one was 16 mm. Due to liability reasons, all cars are built to understeer when pushed to their limits / in low grip. Safer than oversteering and spinning into a corner when wet. In America most Japanese cars are sold with overly-safe parts which sometimes kill the fun.

Unless you track your car, there is little benefit to stiffer FRONT sways, but you will feel the upgrade on the REAR. The place you will feel it is when cornering - but don't expect to feel it when cornering in the parking lot at your local Starbucks. You'll feel it when cornering on the highway access ramps, or any other roads with high speed and tight radius corners.

The bushes are attached to the bar, you will need SRT sway bar and SRT sway bar links.
