Thinking of getting a new Outback 3.6 to replace our aging Baja.
I was able to find one vendor for an axe back exhaust (no catback) but suspension pieces (like struts and sway bars) seem to be non-existent. Anyone found any parts for these vehicles, or am I looking at full custom?

in the past, www.boxer4racing.com had some go-fast bits for Legacy-based cars. I haven't bought anything from them for a long time. Website used to be awkward but, you could probably email them to see what they offer.

OEM 19mm rear sway bar upgrade is very common, pretty much all rear sway bars for 08-14 wrx/sti fits the Gen5 Outback. Don't know of any for the front (maybe Legacy-based ones fit?).

RS-R makes lowering springs that some members are very happy with but I haven't heard of any company that makes performance struts for the Outback. You might be better off looking in to a Legacy suspension swap since they tend to have more aftermarket suspension options.

Gen 5 stuff is still pretty new, and the aftermarket isn't as hot to jump on new OBs for suspension stuff (unlike the Wranglers. You can practically build a new Jeep from aftermarket parts).

Also, what do you define as "Performance suspension"? Low and tight? High and soft? Trophy truck? TCC racer?

Looking for better handling/cornering retaining stock height.Area Subaru specialists say "look at our website", not terribly helpful. Last time I did suspension mods, 2000 Grand Cherokee, put in new sway bars and gas struts, huge improvement in handling.

Have a Gen 4 here, and I know that Cusco has some struts for mine, don't know if they would work for yours, or have them for your gen. Worth a look.

If you can't find the million of sway bar posts about upgrading to 19, even 21mm sway bars man, I don't know if we can help you.
We even have one of our own making OEM spec bushings.
I'm surprised Traildock hasn't showed up yet to peddle his wares.
