    I am in the stage of doing my suspension (also tuning my motor). I have illuminas with ground controls (love it). What else can I do to help the car handle better especially when cornering at higher speeds. I want to get involved in autcross.

    Not to thread jack, sort of but on topic, what are some good brands to buy for sway bars? Eibach? Also do strut bars help at all? And What about brands for those?

    depends on what your looking at and your suspension setup. Honda offers tons of OEM bars from like 13mm or so all the way to 23mm. A 22mm ITR rear swaybar is bigger then almost all other aftermarket brands.

    If you have a factory rear swaybar, then yes. If not, your going to have to buy new rear LCA's to accept swaybar endlinks. You will also have to buy the proper bushings and d-brackets. Also, for a rear swaybar, it is almost manditory that you buy a mounting/reinforcement kit like the beaks, BSQ, or ASR (asr is by far the best and most complete kit, however, its really expensive)

    Yea, that's really going to boost performance in his Civic <_<

    Sway bars, new bushings. New bushings may seem like something small that won't do a whole lot, but let em tell you, it can completely revive a cars feel.
