    so i was thinking on buying a sway bar kit for my rex......it has 90 integra front and back disk brakes.....

    my delema is this

    could i use the OEM teg sway bars on the rex? any fabrication required? i have them but no bushings or brackets

    if i buy the kit, do i buy it for a crx si model or do i buy the teg model? and what would be the best company to buy from.... i like eibach but progress seems good too



    i already installed the 4 strut bars but the car seems loose in the corners....and under heavy braking the car steers/jumps to the left by itself.....

    any input is apreciated

    i ride on tokico blues an h&r sport springs

    Nope i dont think sways are your answer- i think you need some sub-frame support - and some tie bars etc - sways arnt going to help you stick to the road

    they allow you to not PUSH or understeer so much-- thus, inducing over steer. and it sounds like you already have too much oversteer.

    if your ass end is tail happy, you have a fast car :p

    but if your concerned that you can't control it, tighten up the front shocks, loosen the rear shocks, and get some better tires on the car.

    okay i'm understandng more...


    do you think that the left jump during braking is the suspension?

    the rear end does get away from me some times.... but my tires suck...michelin pilot sports....but they are old (bald) but i do admit my car is not fast....

    what did you mean by this
    ", tighten up the front shocks, loosen the rear shocks, "
    how do i do that....

    You go buy Illuminas or AGX's. B was thinking you had the whites, not the blues, you don't have adjustability in your shocks.

    Two sway bars, two strut tower bars, two lower tie bars <-I guess some people would mistakenly call these lower strut bars, since they sort of tie the area underneath that would be effected by movement during turning in the same way.
