    Figured I might as well start a thread on this one too if I'm here about the swaylinks. Two days before I took the car in to the dealer for them to tell me I should replace my whole new aftermarket sway bar with a stock one to fix my noise 🙄 I also picked up a CEL. Of course they wouldn't...

    Hello! New to this forum. Hoping for some insights and advice. Apologies in advance if this is a repeat. Last year I had a heck of a time getting our 2005 Outback inspected. The mechanic kept telling me to drive it so "codes would clear." I didn't then and continue not to understand what...
