sway bars

i will get a new WRX within 2 months from now, i was wondering if its possible to simply tighten the sway bars to limit the roll effect, or if i absoutely have to buy a new kit and instal it.

because, if possible, in the bargainning of the car, ill ask the dealer to tighten the sway bars as tight as they can to limit the roll. (while they do the pre-sale check up.)

i'd save time AND money... so i hope it works, whats the verdict?

thanks lots,
LEX

No you can't tighten the bolts any more.

Sway bar "kits" will reduce sway, or body roll, and stabilise a vehicle under lateral cornering forces.
