    DIY: FKX Strut Tower Bar

    Will these enhance the handling when used with a stock suspension.
    Also off the topic here but what size is the stock Rear sway bar on the EX coupe?

    I installed my bar tonight. Very straight forward and easy. I tried putting the passenger side bracket on first and could not get the thing over the strut bolts for the life of me. I thought I was going to have to trim the plastic back as Tech had mentioned. So after about 2 minutes of pissin around and getting mad I decided to jack up the front of the car. I jacked it up just enough so the strut bolts dropped until about a 1/4 inch was sticking up. I then slid both brackets on simply and let the jack down and tightened everything up. I would recommend to anyone installing to just jack the front of the car a bit to help get the brackets in there, there was no prying or anything at that point.

    Even with stock suspension, you will notice improvement. The car can steer much quicker especially at high speed.
