Can someone tell me which part numbers and manufactures have a rear sway bar that will fit a 2008 outback 3.0? I think a 19mm will be fine. I would like to go with Subaru online parts since they are cheaper.
Wish I could tell you- despite living in Pennsylvania & frequently traveling to the Boston area, I've managed to miss almost every snow since I bought the car 2 years ago.
Theoretically, it should have the effect of increasing the pressure (and therefore grip) of the outside wheel relative to the inside wheel in a turn. This only lasts until that tire loses grip and starts to slide. Once the slide starts, I expect more fishtailing than on the stock setup. I actually prefer this, as I learned to drive in a RWD car with lots of oversteer, so countersteer recovery is old hat.
I do drive it on poor dirt roads & soft sand, and the above has held true in those circumstances. In short, I feel like it's easier to make the car slide, but the slide is much more predictable & controllable than it was before I did the mod.
well let me ask this:
Since i cannot find a rear sway bar for a 2008 outback at Subaru online, what will match up?
2010 outback? (i wouldnt think so), one from a legacy maybe?
I do not need anything heavy duty just want a stiffer ride. I am thinking the 19mm will be sufficient.
