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.
I read the link on the math explanation. He is comparing the total material in the sway bar; saying a thicker tubular bar has less material than a thinner solid bar therefore no performance increase. I did a quick search, and this is not a true statement.
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.
