I was changing my oil yesterday and was noticing what appeared to be a comparably beefy front sway bar just below the oil pan. I think that if you were to upgrade the front, it'd be a considerably thicker bar and you may not want that per se.
Cusco makes one; it's a 25mm.
I had an EF Honda CRX and had a Cusco front lower tie bar and it was definitely a quality part, for what it's worth.
The front strut brace (GTSpec makes a nice one, as referenced in this forum multiple times...) may be a better alternative for the Outback.
Tue, but most people seem to do this upgrade to reduce leaning - not understeer. Stiffening up the front will further reduce lean and bring you back near the original understeer condition. I doubt most people even reach the limits where understeer is an issue.Any reason why you would do this? The 19mm rear bar corrects an understeer condition. A bigger front bar would move you back to understeer.

13 does not have stock 19mm RSB. They made several changes including changing rear spring rates, so it's a whole different ball game.Just to catch up.. the theory is upgrading the 24 to 26mm in front in conjunction with the already 16 to 19mm upgrade in back might create more understeer?
So it's safe to say that the '13 have a whole lot more going on in the suspension to reduce roll.. Either that or '13 maybe have an understeer issue?
