I bought the RCE front and rear combo kit that has 25.5mm bars both. It was priced really nice at the time, around 475 sourced through a local speed shop. Ive been really impressed with all of the RCE gear ive purchased in the past so I went with them. There are tons of options out there especially when you consider all the different end link options. It gets overwhelming when you try to decide what setup to go with. There are some really great companies that make excellent gear. Swaybars are pretty simple to make yet ive seen some really bad ones. A little research goes a long way.

Here is a link to a thread that I think you may find helpful:

22 vs 24 mm rear sway bar on stock suspension

As I mentioned here I think that for most street driven 2015 through 2017 STi's just upgrading the rear bar is enough. The front bar is very stiff from the factory, and a bar that is too stiff can actually be counterproductive in some cases. My recommendation for most 15+ owners is to simply upgrade the rear bar, upgrade end links for both the front and rear and upgrade the D bushings on the front bar to help everything work together. Without upgrading these things in the front the rear bar will react more quickly while the factory soft bushings and flexible endlinks in the front move around before the front bar can do its job. This makes handling less predictable and also makes the bias front-to-rear change somewhat as you go through a corner. I do have a lot of customers who call us that have spoken with other shops that have recommended upgrading both bars. I am certainly happy to sell more parts (which is what I suspect a lot of shops that recommend both front and rear bars are trying to do), but I really think that for most people this is the best solution.

If you have any questions I will be glad to help. I will echo lower_thresh’s recommendation of SuperPro. In my opinion they make by far the highest quality bars and end links on the market. We sell most of the major brands, but people who see them in person before buying always choose SuperPro.

Thanks,
Geoff
