The only thing I could find about the oem front sway bar was that it is 21mm, anyone care to confirm this? I'm planning on doing the 20mm sti rear sway bar swap, but want to see if swapping in the 24mm front sti sway bar will give me any benefit. Asking because I can get a deal on both locally for the price of just the rear
.

It is 21mm. You will have a good balance (minimal understeer) if you do just the rear bar. I put a 24mm front in with a 22mm rear (Whiteline) and like that setup a lot, but that is fairly stiff so bumps on one side create side-to-side movement; however, there is very little roll in corners which is what I was after. I think a 24/20 setup will leave you with understeer; you'd probably be happier with 21/20 or 24/22.

Thanks for the great information. Definitely looking for a little better handling myself. I'm going to see how things change with new tires.
