    The only suspension upgrades that I have done is switch my shocks to Tokico Illuminas. I am running the springs that came with the Tokico kit. What do you guys recomend as the next step?

    I have Suspension Techniques it all came in a kit with the sways and the bushings.
    That is the only brand I have had but it handles great. I heard Skunk2 sways are pretty good but they do not have a poly eurethane bushing kit. You can find the Suspension Techniques kit for $200 for front & rear sways and bushing kit.

    I am sure the Eibachs are all good, I have their springs but I have not heard about their sway bars. Like I said the Suspension Techniques kit is only $200.

    The OEM front swaybar is fine. I'd go with a JDM ITR or even a USDM ITR rear sway (23 or 22 mm, respectively). You can get a brand new USDM ITR bar for ~$75, plus $15 for a BSQ subframe reinforce kit and another few bucks for misc shit to install it. This is the single best bang for the buck upgrade you could do IMO. Another thing is to get some stiffer springs, like custom rate GCs. Even with all that the car will still be prone to understeer at the limit, just keep your foot off the brakes mid-corner and don't lift or you'll be going backwards fast.

    Strut bar isn't a sway bar. Although that is a very good tower bar.




    He has a CRX, aka EF. I am pretty sure that the EF won't except a 3rd gen teg swaybar. I belive that the endlinks are further out.


    Look at progressive. They make a very nice swaybar. Up to some better tires, like Azenies or Kumho MX,
