I've been doing some studying on suspension and anty-sway bars and strut bars etc and I think I want to go with the rear anti-sway bar for performance gains. I'll talk to Brian (GT-Pro) and let you guys know.
ADDCO makes them...the front bar on our NA cars is already decent. I'd go with a front strut tower bar as well. I noticed a HUGE difference on my NA...you can get one of those from a couple member son the board...
You can get the Addco rear sway bar from shox.com. They have very competitive prices on many suspension parts for our cars.
I as well have also been told that it's not worth changing the front sway bar because the Addco bar is not much thicker than stock.
Putting on swaybars basically has the effect of increasing grip on the opposite end of the car. So, if you put a front sway bar on, your rear end usually will have better roadholding. So, in a front wheel drive car, you want a BIG ASS rear sway bar. FWD cars understeer, meaning the front tires give out first, so you need to increase front tire grip, hence the rear sway bar. Too big a rear sway bar can be dangerous, cuz the car will have a tendency towards lift throttle oversteer, and your chances of spinning out are a lot higher.
Aiight, if all these Hondas and stuff are FWD, then why da hell do they all have these big ass front strut bars under the hood, if it just improves the handling on the opposite side of the car. Must be the rice-effect.
