Does anyone know what the current diameter of the Accord touring rear sway bar? and if there are any recommended aftermarket replacement? I want to make the car feel sportier while still in Drive mode.

Here is an update:
2.0T Sport, EX-L and Touring and 1.5T Touring: Rear Stabilizer is 16.5mm solid.

1.5T LX, EX, and EX-L: Rear Stabilizer is 16.0mm solid.

I found this on google; Eibach Sway Bar Kit (Anti-Roll Kit) 22mm thickness. Has anyone upgraded their rear sway bar? I know this was a sufficient improvement in the previous gen accord.

Rear sway bars have always been solid, NOT tubular. The front sway bars are usually tubular and hollow. Tubular ones are going to flex more than a solid one. I have auto-x for many years and have tried both. That was a mistake. I would never upgrade the Rear to anything but a solid sway bar.

Whoever comes out with a solid bar for the rear will have my business.

Now it's very possible that Eibach came out with a tubular one because the rear subframe could not handle a solid bar, but I highly doubt it because they could add bracket to reinforce the mounting points on the subframe. So they do it for cost savings which I don't agree with..

BTW, this is just my personal preference and my opinion from my experience. You don't have to agree with it.
