Sounds right.I think that sway bar is for an 11th generation sedan (2019), not 12th generation hatch (2019). I assume that sway bar will not fit on the new 12th generation (2020) sedan either.
Anyone know the sizes of the stock front and rear swaybars?

The stock rear bar must be tested for the easy handling for the daily driver as understeer would be safer than oversteer. By the way have you switch to better rubber (summer performance) as the stock A/S Yokohama Avid GT sucks as it only has B traction and loud road noise?The fronts probably big enough, the rear could use upgraded. I think a few more mm of bar would go a long way on the rear. Although I've not measured it, I have been under there a few times and noticed the front was pretty beefy for what it is. But with it being FWD going to stiffer rear bar will help increase rotation in the corners and cancel out understeer to promote oversteer.
Part of the reason I went with the RSR springs was for the stiffer rear springs than the front. That plus a proper alignment (no toe in) really brought my handling to life. I'd still REALLY want some aftermarket shocks/struts that are valved a lot firmer than OEM but eh not a priority since it's just my daily.

Front sway is 28mm and rear is 25mm, they are not skinny by any means. I think once more coilover kits become available, I will jump onto one because I don't enjoy the lack of feedback from the stock suspension.
I find this a little scary because the stock setup with the Dunlop Sport AS tires, when I corner a little too hard. It could be quiet while it has grip, however, when the tires started to make some noise, then I felt the suspension could't fully compensate and wanted to give up. I personally like setup where the noise acts as a warning for going above limit, but this... when I hear the sound, I am already over the limit.
The numbness of the steering is also another issue, I can't feel the front tires losing traction during understeer.
Of course, this auto-x style of driving is not a typical Corolla driver would be doing.. just something I have to deal with if I am ever taking it out for a run.
I am surprised no one to do a in-depth testing of the HB, there are 2 automotive coaches that has done thorough testings of the HB (even in automatic) and praised the car. They are in Chinese but I am sure it's nothing we don't already know, the mountain road testing is probably the most interesting.
