Heres the deal, I need a rear sway bar badly for autox. Especially with the stickies I picked up. My current suspension setup is Tokico Illuminas spring/strut kit. They are 5-way adjustable struts, the springs are about 350 lbs ft up front , and 250 lbs ft in the rear. Now I know generally Id want stiffer springs, that aren't linear, but thats not an option at this moment.

I know you have to be careful with how big of a sway bar you get because you might tear your chassis, however I also read somewhere that might also be because of to soft springs.

I'm thinking a 19mm bar, nice middle of the road size. Do i need the sway bar support plate for that size? Or bigger size? Smaller? Remember shes my DD so she needs to be streetable.

Maybe someone has some recommendations for me?

Thank you.

Whiteline is good. Whatever you get, just be sure it comes with some kind of subframe bracing. I've been looking for a USDM Si rear bar for my EKhatch.

Does the del-sol vtec have the EG rear suspension or EK? I'm really interested in doing this, but I want to be sure it will all fit first.

I once considered putting in a GSR rear bar, but with all the bracketry its almost as much as an aftermarket kit.

The S and VTEC model Sols are EG. The Si is an EH (which confused me at first - I thought I had an EG).

Thanks for the suggestions guys, but from my understanding I need only an EK bar, which to my knowledge is different from the EG, etc.

Any more?

you just need EK endlinks. integra/eg/delsol bars are the same all you need is endlinks.
