you have to custom make brackets for the mounting points on the lower control arms.
Also have to cut appx 2" off of each end.
Changes the character of the car immensely.
I was wearing the outside edges of the front tires before I put the rear bar on. Now I don't have that issue.
Does away with the understeer.
I don't consider my hatch to be twitchy but my brother-in-law thinks it is.
Maybe a little on long, fast sweepers.
Short wheelbase ya' know.
I'll try to get some pictures if your interested in what the mounts and such look like.

When I changed my RX to 5 lug I left the front bar off for a week.
The car would really lean in the front when pushed, scary lean.
I did have the rear bar off the XT6 on the back. 21mm

Hooked up the front and it leveled out.
Understeers on brakes and oversteers on throttle.
Good thing is I have 3 front bars for the front and two for the back to choose from.
Not trying to be the know all, see all. Just sharing my info. Individual results may vary.

my project (takin over from wrx1ab) puts an XT/RX 21mm rear sway bar on an 82 GLW. Yep, EA81s don't have the mounts.
he took the rear swaybar & control arms from the XT (RX?) and did a lil dremmel mod to the wagon to make it happen.
that in addition to KYBs all around made it quite a handler
i'll let you now when the 'resurection' is complete
82 GLW (w/ RX & XT bits :evil: )

The RX is very neutral, and loose on the loose stuff. To my knowledge, and from what I can tell, its all stock. The enigne runs like crap tho. I did make it run a little better today...
