    DIY 2012 SI Sedan Rear Eibach Sway Bar Install

    hi, just bought a used eibach sway bar (4031.312). Question: is the Eibach bushing color BLACK or RED? and what kind of Lube/Grease should i use on the bushing (Since it does not come with it). Also the OEM comes with 20mm and eibach is 19mm. Should i replace it with eibach? I'm using Eibach Pro-Kit

    If your OEM is 20mm than no point in switching to a 19mm sway bar I would just leave it as is.

    Can someone else please comment on the size difference because I've heard different things. Some people have said that although the Eibach RSB is only 19 mm, it's plenty stiffer than the stock OEM RSB, even though the stock bar is bigger in diameter. Kev, you're saying the 19mm RSB from Eibach won't get you any improvement? Well crap! The Eibach 19mm RSB just showed up at my door and I was about to install it. What do others think / have in terms of experience?

    I believe the Eibach bar is a solid bar where as the OEM is hollow.

    Oh jeez, it's not sounding good for the Eibach bar. It's smaller diameter and not hollow (I can actually confirm it's solid, although I haven't taken off the OE bar yet). Why do they even put this as an upgrade?

    Okay everyone, take it from me: if your car came with a 20 mm OE rear sway bar, the Eibach 19 mm bar, even on its stiffest setting with uprated Moog end links is hardly what I would call an upgrade. They're both solid bars, and there's little between them in terms of roll resistance. I will be trading soon for the Progress bar. I could see the Eibach bar as an upgrade from a dinky OE bar several mm smaller, but I'll probably wind up taking the 24 mm Progress variant after this experience. Who wants to buy a hardly used Eibach RSB??

    If the OEM bar is hollow, wouldn't the eibach one be much stiffer just from the added torsional strength gained from it being solid?

    Guess it depends on the year of your car. The 19mm Eibach bar was a definite improvement in my 2012. The OEM bar for 2012 is only 15mm. While it's not a tremendous upgrade, I can definitely feel it, especially on exit ramps, etc going 40-50 mph. If I had the 20mm OEM bar, I never would have swapped it out.
