Done some searching on here and i see that many people here have ebay strut bars. I'm looking at something to put on my 02 SF. I see both single and doubt tubes for $20-$30ish on ebay. Opinions on which is better?

It would seem many people are running this one,

I think the double tube has slightly better fitment. I am using the single tube and it really wants to rub the AC lines on my 07. It's correctable but kind of annoying.

The double tube has the same issue, but from what I can tell based on pics it's not quite as bad as the single tube on SGs. I'm not sure if this would be different on an SF, though.

there's alot of those on ebay right now. I'd have to repaint the pink, it says "Front Up Strut Brace Bar Subaru Impreza WRX STi 02 - 06" but i assume it should fit and 02SF too

I bought one of them for my 98SF, i think it was the 02-06 one, and it didn't fit. So make sure it will fit before you make the purchase. :)

For an SF front you need a pre 01 'classic' Impreza bar, SG uses the later front, both use the 02-> rear bar.

"The Rookie" has it right. The SF has a weird setup. You need the 93-01 Impreza bar up front, and the 02-07 WRX/STi bar in the back.
Everytime I'm poking around the forums, sea-scooby always has the answers. Thanks for the info sea-scooby!
