    ok, i'm wanting to put an integra front sway bar on my Civic VX.... buut, i'm not sure what all i'd need.. i dont think mine came with one stock, so there probably isnt mounting spots for it (or are there?) .. is there anything else i'd need other than the sway bar..

    i plan to do the JDM ITR 23mm rear eventually too.. but i'll need the dif. LCAs and a subframe brace to prevent tearout.. so that'll come later.. so what all would i need to do the front for now

    I wouldn't upgrade the front sway if I were you. Unless you have a lot of rear spring, you'll just be inducing understeer.

    But, to answer your question with no answer.. I have no idea, I've never touched the front sway bar. :D

    dont put as large of a rear sway on
    then you wont need a front


    the front is only there to compensate for the rear
    ie: if your car oversteers too much in a corner (ass end swings out) then you would upgrade your front swaybar

    well, what i think i'll do is buy the stuff i'm gonna need for the front since its much cheaper than the rear... but wait until i have the rear sway, subframe and LCAs to put everything on..
