I'll be putting in all new bushings on my '90 DX hatch in the near future, and while I'm at it I thought it's pick up some Si LCAs and put those in so that I can install a rear sway bar.

Now from my reading, I don't have the mounts for a sway bar and will have to make up something like this:

The thread got me thinking, which would be better for my application (all stock suspension, with the exception of bushings. KYBs and H&R sports will come in summer) a stock civic Si rear bar or a stock DA?

From my searching Si rear is 15mm and Da is 17mm.

DA. Bigger bar=less roll without having stiffer springs.

eh, in case you guys didn't know, the Si takes the same amount of effort to get in there as the DA.

+1 on the ST bar. Already has what you need to get it in there.

Well an ST bar would be nice but it might be overkill for what I've got now.

Not to mention that I'll probably getting the Si bar for like $40 at most, vs $150 US + shipping to canada.

Thanks for all the help guys.

just so you know, you can "directly" bolt up the sway bar. I think you use the DA mounts and whatever stock bar. I'll check to be certain. If you swap sides with the LCAs to mount the end links from the back side. Then, remove the rear tie down brackets. swap sides with the sway bar mounts. Then drill the sway bar mounts out to use the tie down bolts. I did it on my brothers wagon and my 4dr this way.
