Hey this is for anyone who has squeezed a whiteline 22mm adjustable N/A fsb into their legacy. I'm doing this currently to my 93 l wagon and I am just having a hell of a time getting the new sway bar to fit past the headers, I've tried putting it through the driver side, passenger side. My suspension is in a neutral position(not sagging down its under load), the jack plate is all the way off, the passenger side header shroud is off and I still don't have the wiggle room I need! I really really don't want to drop my headers and I believe it's possible to do this without dropping them. I just want to know of any of you seasoned legacy mechanics have any tips or tricks for me? I am very mechanically inclined but this one has me struggling! Thankyou in advance!

I pulled my el header to install mine. When I installed my sisters fsb, just a factory one, I believe I dropped her exhaust also.

That might just be the easiest way at this point I think haha
Thanks for your input

Yup just drop the headers. Quick and easy on a NA and new gaskets are like $10

I was using the 22mm non adjustable bar so I don't know about dimension differences but I did have to unbolt the manifold from the heads (did not unbolt from the rest of the exhaust). And I was able to slide it in then.

Thankyou everyone for your help! I did just unbolt the headers (not all the way just to the end of the studs) and the bar fit right through! What a difference, I'm smiling through all the corners now. Next up rear swaybar conversion!

The part number for the front bar i used is BSF19XZ. I still have not aquired a rear bar or looked into it too deep so i am of no help there. Weird that whiteline couldnt throw you some part numbers, i swear ive read threads on here where they are able to help other first gen owners find the right bar. I dont see how your scenario is any different! hahah anyways hope that helps. nasioc might be a good aid, look for people throwing rear sways on their ~93 imprezas.
