Sweet man!

Mod #1, no questions asked, absolutely MUST be..
REAR SWAY BAR!

As a minimum, get a 19 mm from a late-model STi as you can get them pretty cheap (I've heard as low as $50). Or after market...Perrin (my choice), or Cusco.

Brakes, fronts from an 2004+ Lib GT/H6 are a good budget upgrade :thumbs: Rears from a BRZ/86 or an 10+ LGT/H6 will go on, though the size increase is much less compared to the front increase

Have fun!

Do we have a team SWP!?!?!?!? We need one if we don't, who do i talk to! :lol:

Not so much sand (yet) but i do enjoy using it up in the mountains on trails and i would like to go through a creek at some point
, will that sway bar effect this?

there is defs a team SWP, and then a whole other group of ppl who are jealous and wish they were SWP...

sway bar may limit off roading a bit. sway bar is mainly meant to help your wheels stay flat, but when you're offroading you obviously want the opposite to maximise traction.

Charlie - rear sway bar is obligatory IMO.
I got a Perrin 19mm which balances well with the stock front sway bar.
The difference is HUGE.

I've been soft roading, beach and the like and no probs.

It's half an hours work and well worth it.
