I just purchased online a 20 mm sway bar, what are the chances of my dealer I bought my car putting it on, it's a Subaru part. Does anybody have a link or instructions on installing looking to get it done tomorrow.

It's very easy. There might be some YouTube videos on it but just by looking underneath I'm sure you can see that it's straight forward.

Like he said. It takes about 15 minutes and a couple of sockets. It a little harder with dual exhausts but not that difficult. Note- remember how it came off especially where the bend is located. I slid my butt under the Vehicle not Jack or anything and I have a Legacy.

Do you need the hardware and link kit also?

No, just the bar and rubber bushings, and since you have a '17, it should be a easy swap (no rust).
Just be careful not to strip anything on reinstall. I had no issues, but some I guess were overly enthusiastic with the wrench!

The newer rubber bushings make for a tighter fit, so make sure the holes are lined up and level with each other before threading!! If they are slightly off, you'll strip. Otherwise, it's a straight forward install.

The dealer just installed it, the difference is night and day I came from an Infiniti Q50 and when I drove the Outback with the cushy ride was a little depressed. The Sway bar tightens everything up even the steering this is a must have upgrade for me 90 for the part 60 to install, well worth the money. Can anyone tell me why it tightens the steering an added bonus?

Bigger rear sway bars reduce under steer. Too big and you can introduce over steer.

Forgive me for resurrecting an older thread, but I was wondering if the 20mm rear sway bar (according to SubaruOnlineParts, fits the Crosstrek only) will fit my new 2021 Outback Touring? I have installed larger rear sway bars on several of my previous Subarus and really like the improved handling.
