Subarus are like Legos

Update by Per Schroeder to the Subaru Impeza project car
Aug 12, 2005

While rally cars don’t typically have the stiff springs and anti-roll bars that road racing and autocross cars do, they can benefit from some tweaks. The 1995 Impreza LX was one of the few 2.2 liter Imprezas that came stock with a rear anti-roll bar, unfortunately, it’s only 13 mm thick. A quick and simple upgrade is to bolt on a larger bar from a 2004+ WRX or 2002+ WRX wagon (17mm) or if you need a little more roll stiffness, you can go with a 2002-2003 WRX sedan bar, which measures in at 20mm.

We chose the 17mm version from a 2004 WRX, partially because it’s a little more conservative for loose surfaces and it came as a package deal with some WRX springs for $75 from a local autocrosser. We’ll be using those WRX front springs to get a little more ride height and rate to go with some KYB AGX shock absorbers that we have on the way.
