Thumbs down Sway Bars

I wouldn't recommend the Suspension Techniques sway bar kit. Kit was incomplete and poorly engineered.

I bought a set a few years ago for my accord and it did not have all the parts to mount it to the car. I ended up returning it.

i TOTALLY would recommend their kit; went on with ZERO hitches, performance is sensational, etc



you don't have to, but i went ahead and used the Beaks rear subframe reinforcement kit...sub-frame tears can be a BITCH!

I'm a manufacturer rep for Eibach; i can tell you their anti roll kits are fabulous, however..they are just that: kits. you can't select just rear,...or, just front..

I see the original poster never came back to defend himself. maybe a mod should change the title to something more positive or just lock the thread.

ehh, the tables turned in the right way, weird thread, but, it's pretty informative for those of us who have been lazy replacing stuff like sway bars, or, those of us who are even to lazy to research such!

zues- sway bars? suspension techniques, progress, beaks...

BTW, an issue with installing big rear aftermarket sway bars that alot of people are unaware of is detailed here-
www.beaksproducts.com

the lower tie bar, such as that pictured in my pic, is made by neuspeed. several manufactuers make this, it's def. IMO not as important to perform that mod as it is installing increased diameter swaybar, especially for the front! personally, i like, for the street, a big front sway bar and a diesel rear sway bar to match.

find out before hand the model and if you can get some instructions before purchasing.

I am not a fan of the regular rear sway bar that st sells. it mounts to bottom of the shocks. you have to take the shocks off and turn them around so the nut is facing a certain way.

the one complaint that I had about the ST kit is having to drill a couple of holes in the subframe.

search for a kit that mounts to the factory locations. I think they are much better kits. skunk2 is a good example of this.
