Has anyone tried this yet on a daily driven (never tracked) car? I'm about to get a 9-3 parts car soon to bring my baby back to life. If I have to be the guinea pig for this study I will.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Not tried it yet, but Nick did advise that I should do this (for a track car mind).
Many posts about this and a few have this mod.
I know there have been many posts about it but I've never read anything about anyone doing it and having success on a daily driver. I don't know much that could go wrong.
These posts may help or maybe you have read them, but really not sure what it is you are after as most cars on this board are daily drivers. It's best to get an after market bar, but if you have a parts car then give it a shot. All you will need is some longer/stronger bolts.

Raggy did it a while back on the V6 and a Talladega he used as a trackday car,drop him a P.M. Before he disappears in his caravan for the summer...

He wanted Free mods.. Double stack stock is a good free mod, not quite the same as an upgraded bar but getting closer. For track day the rear bar will make a world of difference.

i use to have Double stock (17mm) sway bar on my NG (sold) ,tightens the rear like a rock and you can feel the difference on a first corner
also you can expect (maybe) some over steer as front is loose ,especially on stock suspension. (stage 3 car)
if you asking me go for it ..........cheap mod but will make difference
it was one of the first things i did to my 9-3, i recommend every one does it, it firms up the back end a treat, you know, when you're half way around a corner at speed and the back feels as tho' it has a second go at body roll, that all disappears and for the cost of a few bolts and a second hand roll bar its cheep

I happily tracked my double stack but I had the fatter inner rear bar fitted too.
