Here are the aftermarket ones for the RSX:

Hotchiks ($416 for 2 bars): 1" (25.4mm) Hollow Front and Back with polyurethane bushings.
Hotchkis


Comptech ($380-non-adjustable; $580-adjustable): 22mm Rear Swaybar with Lower Tie Bar Kits with bushings. Drilling Required.
Comptech


JDM ($168): 22mm Rear Sway Bar System w/ Rubber Bushings. Bolt-on.
modacar JDM Rear Sway


Progress ($199): Rear sway. Not much info for this.
Progress @ Optauto.com

To those that have no idea why I am posting RSX info on a 2k1 site is that the sway bars fit 2k1's. Well those fitted with one already.

I know that the rear sway bar will fit, but the fronts are shaped different and I'm not sure that they will work.

many posts have been made in regard to the size of the bar

it has been determined that the 19mm is the best for our vehicle.....the larger 22mm will make it handel "worse"

peace

So we can install the RSX-S 19mm sway bar on our Civic EX's? Anyone know how much of the bar, bushings (endlinks?) and all the hardware? Has anyone here done it yet?
I agree, 22mm would probably make the car oversteer a lot or become unstable on the turns and require a lot of throttle modulation. Our Civics have different suspension geometry than the last gen. Plus Eibach told me that the stock spring rates on a '01 Civic are really high in the back (almost 300lbs/in.!!).

Yes we can install it, it runs about $90 total (acuraautomotiveparts.net). Sicollx was the first, check him in the member rides. You don't need the endlinks, and it looks like the factory mounts will work (noone has confirmed yet) so all you need is the bar and bushings.

I ordered it a few days ago. I'll compare the stock mounts/brackets to see if u need to buy the new one.

and even if you do, the total cost is like 83 with shipping. cost a lot cheaper than aftermarket ones.

No need, chassis is the same and suspension is the same. They should fit.



<< I know that the rear sway bar will fit, but the fronts are shaped different and I'm not sure that they will work. >>



From the looks of it the front will fit as well. They look the same at least.

I was wondering that myself and someone posted this: What do you think of my Civic



<< So we can install the RSX-S 19mm sway bar on our Civic EX's? Anyone know how much of the bar, bushings (endlinks?) and all the hardware? Has anyone here done it yet? >>



Yes, they have. All you need are the brackets that hold the bushings. Everything else is the same. That's if you have an EX. Any other 2001 model and the 2002 DX will need everything the EX needs and the end links and the end-link mounting brackets. Those will need to be welded on to the rear lower arms. It's a biotch and a half to do, but I plan on doing it anyway.

hmm, I am still tempted to go with a 22mm bar. I called up a technician at Neuspeed and the guy told me the same thing. That 19mm would be "safe and ideal" size for the 01 Civic. If you get a 19mm bar, you'd only be itching for the 22mm, so why not just save yourself those sleepless nights and get the 22mm? Oh by the way, Mugen has the 26mm bar available for the RSX... imagine THAT in your 7th gen with full coilovers and BF Goodrich T/A tires... sweet...
