Re: Sway Bar Sizes

you use the accord ones. you could reuse the ones on the car....if you dont have to cut them to get them off personally, id upgrade them anyway. i was skeptical on them at first, but i got moog endlinks, and when i actually saw them, i understood why everyone liked them haha. theyre much better than the oem ones.

Re: Sway Bar Sizes

The OEM front bar on sedan I4's is 26.5mm, I just bought bushings for 2 6GA's and that's what I measured and bought.

Re: Sway Bar Sizes

So....it's pretty much pointless to swap out the front sway bars.....

Re: Sway Bar Sizes

ill also add that the 04 tl progress bar is a tight fit with the brackets going to their locations. everything fits fine, and is secure, but its definitely tight. also, ive heard that just only with sedans, you have to bend down one of the exhaust hangers a little, and i did have to do that as well. idk if its the same for coupes.

Re: Sway Bar Sizes

Yeah, i was thinking about doing the 24mm Progress sway bar for the 04 TL for my car (a coupe) but have only seen install done on sedans....

A little worried if it's more work than it's worth for an extra mm or two...

Re: Sway Bar Sizes

definitely not hard. and it is SO worth it.

you think it's just a few mm, but torsional rigidity increases exponentially the thicker a swaybar gets.

so a couple mm makes a really big difference. i'd get the progress sway all day every day.
