Pushing this up...I'm kinda wondering about this mod too. How is the fitment on this? Any problems in installation? Is there a night-and-day difference after installing this?

I have the sus tech. lower bars, front and rear. I can't tell about the fitment b/c I did not put them on myself.
Frickin' great mod though-you can really slice through those curves

That's a nice prelude-I'd pay fifty dollars for one!

heard for the Gen4, the ST front bar is the same thickness as the stock size....but the rear is thicker....

beats me why they would have a front bar with the same thickness as the stock bar...

anyone know why?

i dunno if it applies to 4th gens but it does to 5th. it might be cause the stock bats hollow.

and ODL, what the heck was that post with "=D" as the subject that just appeared and disappeared??

are u sure stock is hollow? does not make sense for a torsion bar to be hollow even if its stock.</font>
Why? Haven't you ever seen sway bars that are hollow? Pick up the stock one, it's very light. The ST bar is much heavier. Besides, it's not the thickness that matters, it's the stiffness.

I just installed the rear ST bar two weeks ago: fitment was perfect, install took like 45min and it looks/feels great. My tires were too bald, so i didn't have the balls to attempt to kick out the rear.
ONe note, putting the new one in is a ***** because everything seems to be in the way, and i had to end up moving the rear driver's side jack stand over to the front to give me room to wiggle the damn bar around. But that's about it....simple logistic problems

This is the best mod i have brought so far, got mine from Options for 218 shipped, the rear is the best, i experience to much roll, but when i put these on, it was night and day expecially with the right tires (perellies Asemetricos). The rear was a ***** cus the holes are not big enought for the stock end links so i had to drill them to fit, but no big deal.

But that's only for the first shipment of rear sway bars. If you purchase one now, you shouldn't have any problems. At least, i didn't have any problems fitting the endlinks on.
