    wrong forum, suspension it goes....

    The base (b18b engines) integra hatch has a 13mm where the GSR as well as all integra sedans. The formula to determine the diffrence in stiffness between the 2 bars is...
    (New size/Oldsize)^4 = (14/13)^4 = 1.34 so it will be 34% stiffer. However, do the same with a 22 mm rearswaybar and the result is it will be about 8 times stiffer. 30something percent is marginal, 800 is defently noticible. Look for a used ITR rear sway. You can find them for cheap and out of all my suspension mods, that is defently the best.

    Wow... a base integra only has a 13mm sway bar? I know DA9/DB2 have 14.9mm and DB1's have 15.7mm sway bars, would have never thought the rears on DC's would be smaller.
