Looking at getting some new front whiteline sway bars for my 06 Forester. Found a few on ebay but dont know which ones to get. I like my twisty roads but not into trackdays. Can anyone give me advice which one is suited for me? Unless someone has there own model of choice. I need to buy them quick as i am dropping the car off for a service next week.

Choices are.

Whiteline BSF33Z Front Sway Bar 22mm Blade Adj

Whiteline BSF33X Front Sway Bar X 24mm Heavy Duty

Whiteline BSF33 Front 22mm Heavy Duty Sway Bar

Whiteline BSF10 Front 22mm Heavy Duty Sway Bar

I have the ebay links if you want to see. MRT performance is selling them.

Whiteline on the back but im not sure. Bought it with it on already. Spoke to mechanic and he had a spare whiteline one in the garage. I'll buy his used one.

Good score :thumbs: Same diameter front and rear or a slightly larger diameter rear bar are the popular combinations.

I much prefer a thicker front bar. I currently have 25mm front and 22 rear. But there is some special reasons why. My rear end is stripped bare. And i have very sticky tyres. You need good tyres to pull it off. Otherwise the front will understeer.

Forester people generally upgrade the rear as a higher priority than the front because the wagon tends to wallow around. Especially with some extra stuff in the back.

Great info and great link :thumbs:

Regarding front swaybars, i've been trying to get my head around "under/over steer bias" versus "more stability and grip generally" and this has been very helpful.
