    IDK. I thought they were self-adhesive.

    easy way to test? take the stock bar out and drive
    Note: I found that the neuspeed changed the feeling of the steering - i could feel better understeer, most would say it increased it, but no, it increased the feel of the front.
    reduced torsion when driving over to driveway too, one wheel at a time. same comment to rear sways, not sure of the rear strut bars - they are just too close to the wall... Same happened on my miata front stock bar.
    PS: keep extra money for the dampers too... they been there for long time...

    Uuuhnnn.
    I too a quick look, you already have a stock Si front strut bar, so i would keep that there.
    If you see the progress rear sway bar, it includes rear sub-frame reinforcements - best bang-for-the-buck for the car?

    Mixed reviews for the rear top strut bars, but the honda-tech link have some info on the potential factory braces too, not sure price.

    mention of a type-R front that connects the top and the UPA mounting points, but could not verify the veracity...
    Anyway, the front strut mounting point in our cars are close to the firewall, so there are gains, but not by much... i would say D-wish does not need it, but now i saw the upper is considerably high in the chassis and connect to the chassis, not a sub-frame, so "some" gains.

    Stiffening the rear usually better for us FWD.
    you can also ask civicexracer, he have modified his car for the ST class, he might have more pointers for 6th gen.
