WTB: Pics of rear swaybar endlink attachment.

If anyone has some time on their hands and could help me out, then I would seriously appreciate it. I'm looking for pics of the area where the endlink attachments are in the rear of the car. I basically need what's hidden in this pic: rsx-sway.jpg A couple of clear shots of how that endlink attaches to the lower arm would be killer.

Please refer to this thread if you would like to know why I want these pics: RSX rear swaybar installed

Grey, you can check the diagram of the RSX sway bar at www.acuraautomotiveparts.net. The link to the exact page is here.

You can either look at the one on the civic on your own car or check here.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the links, I never knew of an acura parts seller on the net. I go to www.hondaautomotiveparts.com all the time, but now I'm going to browse www.acuraautomotiveparts.net for all my RSX needs. If anyone has some time to take closeups of that spot then that would help me out even more. The diagrams are too small and only from one angle.

Thanks a ton slikor! It looks like it might be possible for me to make that bracket out of a piece of U-shaped metal. I hear electric welders are cheap. Maybe I'll consider doing this mod? Anyway... It's confirmed then. 2001 LX's and DX's are going to have a hard time getting a rear sway bar installed. [email protected]#$

I posted up on www.clubRSX.com for close ups of the suspension. I have a strong feeling that the RSX suspension parts will fit on our civics, possibly with minor modifications. I am interested in this because I want to get a 4 wheel disc thing going w/ RSX parts + alot more. Maybe next week I will take my lazy *** to an Acura dealer & check them out in person.

Yeah, I saw that posted on clubrsx.com... Too expensive though, plus I already have a rear lower tie bar. Not for me.

Neuspeed does have one out, but I guess they don't realize that DX's and 2001 LX's don't come with a rear sway bar. Anyway, DX's and 2001 LX's will not be able to just bolt-on a sway bar because we don't have end-link attachments on the rear lower arms and holes for the brackets that hold the bushings and the sway bar. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif[/IMG]

Making holes for the bracket is no biggie, but fashioning a custom end-link attachment will be difficult. We'll have to take off the wheels, sand the appropriate area to expose the metal, and weld on a custom-made bracket. Refer to the pictures that slikor posted and then look at your rear lower arm. You'll see that you're missing what's in the picture. All of it! This sucks!

I think that making that bracket won't be a terrible pain, but welding it on will be. I need to see if any of the peepz I know have access to a welder...

Its not a very cost effective solution, but people with 01 lx's and dx's could also purchase a set of ex lower control arms. Like I said not cheap, but would do the trick. Or an even more expensive rout would be to wait and see if the RSX 5 lug coversion works, which would supply the lower control arms of an RSX.

Whoops, missed that part about being a 2k1. Sorry. I am sure the same mounting points exist and all you probably have to do is add the sway bar itself with the endlink attachments.

Actually, no! Read my last posts carefully! DX's and 2001 LX's are missing the part circled in red. This part has to be custom fabricated and welded on because you can't buy it individually and it's not a bolt-on part. You could change out the whole lower arm, but they're $150 a piece.
