    I am going to put a gsr front and rear sways on my 94 coupe

    my ?: do I need anything special to put the front bar in place of my stock bar?

    I have the gsr endlinks and D brackets anything else?

    also I know I need gsr endlinks the ones I have are bent, but the ones from the dealershit are $60 a piece, I called summit and ES makes the endlinks for $15 a pair does that sound right, and yes it is for the endlinks not just the bushings I asked. also I know the LS endlinks and GSR are different, has anyone ordered these and have a part #

    Thanks in Advance

    why are you puting a different front sway bar on anyway?
    I assume the GSR one is bigger which would cause your car to understeer more than it allready does.
    Do you have a rear sway bar on your car?
    I would suggest adding or upgrading that before changing the front swaybar. The only reason to do that is if you are getting TOO much oversteer and want to correct that otherwise save yourself the time and money

    unless his car was a EX it didnt have a front or rear sway bar. You will need the dc2 lower control arms too because the lower control arms on civics dont have the hole for you to bolt the endlinks on. i was gonna do this but i am to lazy to take all that shit off and put it back on. you gotta take off your exaust too.

    he says that he has a stock sway bar allready, that is why I asked him why he even wants to change it

    if anything just get new bushings for it
    get the ES endlinks and the ES sway bar bushings and you have a better sway bar than you do now without alot of work and without increasing your understeer as much as with a larger front sway bar

    thanks guys

    I had a stock front bar

    took it off for Suspension Tech kit front and rear

    rear bar broke, when it broke it was rusted halfway through, POS

    Front bar rattles the shit out of my car always has, rubs barely on cat

    so I getting rid of the aftermarket crap in favor of OEM components

    first I plan on using gsr front and rear already have them

    then when I can afford a beaks kit and type r rear, i will upgrade the rear

    also I already have the rear lca's, I know what I need to do for the rear , what I am concerened about is the front

    ok, that makes sense then
    as far as the endlinks go
    try http://www.suspension.com/

    you should be able to find the right parts on there

    if you had an aftermarket bar on the rear why do you need different lca's now?
    what model civic do you have?

    the rear ST bar broke, they do not require lca's with mounting points for a swaybar

    the OEM gsr bar requires the use of teg LCA's or civic with OEM rear sway

    thanks for the link

    I went to http://www.suspension.com/acura.htm

    it does not specify a difference in the GSR and LS endlinks, when the are in fact different

    LS and civics have a straight bolt for an endlink, gsr has totally different endlink, I know because I have the bar and the print out from the dealership which shows the 2 different set ups

    I am just trying to avoid paying $60 a piece for new endlinks from the dealer, and yes I do have to get new endlinks the ones I have are Fawked

    I'm pretty sure there is no difference between the endlinks for the GSR and the LS or for that matter the 5G civics that came with swaybars

    checkout this site
    oem acura parts
    you can get the oem endlinks on there for $17
    and they have the same part number for the gsr endlinks as they do for the ls endlinks

    #35938

    the picture doesn't show up but the part is called the "link stabalizer" or something

    that link doesn't work

    but I think I figured out why we weren't agreeing on this.... you were talking about the front end links and I thought you were talking about the rear endlinks

    yes, they are different between the ls and gsr
    but if you noticed they don't even sell the gsr endling on that site, only the ls

    why not just make your own endlinks?
    use the bent up ones that you have as a pattern and go to your local hardware store and fish around for the right parts

    buy a couple heim joints and some nuts and you are good to go

    sorry I can't be any more help

    good luck
