Re: Rear Sway!!!

it makes life a lot easier.. I have this bar, and the adapter kit for my DX.. I'm just worried about drilling holes in my chassis I can't find a DIY anywhere either...

Re: Rear Sway!!!

I have the Progress rear sway on my 02 and I wouldn't ever drive the car without at least the RSX one again it makes that much of a difference. Good mod man, enjoy it!

Re: Rear Sway!!!

ok i give up...i dont even know where to start to take off my old sway.. i see the endlinks..and where it attaches to the rear sway end points... but it looks just like a crooked bolt... theres nothing on the opposite side of the bolt but some smooth ball side with 4 little dots on it. i dont get where everone is saying to put an allen key or hex key or w.e

anyone got a detailed DIY? or something.. i must be just dumb.

Re: Rear Sway!!!

pb blaster is THE universal lube for stuck bolts, go to walmart and get both sets of allen wrenches for 88c, even comes in a pouch, cant ever have too many tools

Re: Rear Sway!!!

liquid wrench works, but it evaporates too quickly, pb stays around longer and penetrates deeper, kinda like viagra, remember if an erection lasts longer than 4 hours, please consult a physician

Re: Rear Sway!!!

make sure u dont strip it! the main problem for me was that holding the allen key was hurting my hands. so i put a metal bar and rested it on the control arm so that when i turn the wrench, the allen key would hit it and would not move while im loosening it.... ugh.. i had a pic when i did it but cant find it. do u get what i said? haha
