Heya guys, realised that I snapped my rear sway bar mounts. Knew it was a matter of time..,

I have the whiteline adjustable sway with the car lowered coilovers. Just wondering which mounts to go
purchase so I don't snap another?

Whiteline’s KBR18 is a popular choice from the past, with the matching bushing for your swaybar.

Should I be going a WRX one due to the lowering? I have to run it on the hardest setting at the moment of it knocks... I'd prefer soft I think....

if you have an adjustable sway bar you really should have adjustable end links.....they're usually a source of noise though.

with something like the KBRXX-XX (the XX's are replaced with the size of your sway bar to ensure you get the correct saddle clamp bushes), suggested above, you can also loosen the saddle clamps to move the sway bar a little bit forward or backward to help with the with setting up which hole you want to use.

using wrx items at the back can sometimes lead to clearance issues due to the GD having a shallower spare wheel well, you'd need to have a good look before committing.

The more compact wrx/sti mounting blocks do help get things lined up better on a heavily lowered forester. But the forester has larger spare tyres than a wrx, therefor also has a larger spare wheel well. And this can foul if you do the wrx/sti mounts. A mallet and some elbow grease can help things along here.

Looking at the whiteline offerings, the whiteline wrx/sti mounts are also a nice extruded aluminium section mount, whereas the whiteline forester specific counterparts are a pressed/welded steel construction and not nearly as bling-worthy.
