The front ball joints seem...

When I did my 2" lift, it felt absolutely normal, no real change at all in handling. Only over the past 40,000 miles did I notice that the backend of the car felt "loose". Almost like it wasn't...

You have eyesight, so it needs another to make sure the windshield is cleaned where the cameras are. If they don't get clean, Eyesight won't work.

An STI rear sway bar on my stock height 2004 XT was amazing. It is also the same bar I'm currently running on my 2" lifted 2005 XT. Great bar, should have been the bar they had on it stock.
