Any comment to why Whiteline would reccomend 22mm on both ends?

I suppose the compromise would be run the fsb on the stiff setting and the rsb on the soft setting

You can do that. However, keep in mind that the stock FSB is 21mm.. So you're not gaining that much with a 22mm (23mm effectively when you're on the hardest setting) front FSB. It depends on your driving style too. The guys on here recommend 24/25mm FSB.

I've only got a Cusco 20mm RSB. Handles alright!


Got 19mm sti rear sway and the difference was massive during mid/fast turns/hairpins for $50 can't go wrong

Or better yet, get an MY15+ WRX or STI OEM 20mm rear sway bar. I know of a few for $100-120 each

From when I had a WRX it was recommended to go for a bigger rear sway bar before bothering with the front. If you were going to do one or the other on the SH9 which one would have a greater impact?

Go for the rear sway bar first. And as below, can buy 19mm STI RSB or MY15+ WRX/STI 20mm RSB. You'll feel heaps of difference. It's up to you if you want to change the end links.

Quick question, do stock struts and springs from a 2015 WRX STI fit on an SH09?
Everything I have read and seen looks like they should be a direct bolt on, just double checking.
Cheers!
