    Alright thanks. I was just making sure cause when I had my 8th I read somewhere that you needed new ones because the stocks weren't strong enough.

    Yea, I'll replace them with better ones eventually. But the 9th gen R18 and Si rear sway bar end links are the same, so I figure a couple millimeters above the Si rear sway bar won't do too much to the current end links.

    I found a front and rear sway bar kit for the '12 on the Eibach site. If I order directly from them will I need additional parts?

    You will need to order the parts from Honda for the rear. As far as the front goes, the non-Si's and Si's use the same front sway bar from the factory, so you won't need anything for the front.

    Just ordered mine from procivic.com. they had two options: All except Si and Si. I went w/ all except, but ordered the extra parts from CHH just to be safe

    Installing it now. How in the world did you remove the brace from the gas tank? We have all the bolts removed, but there's like a tab holding the end closest to the middle of the car....

    If I remember right, since it has been so long since I actually did this, I had to move the brace around either left or right or forward or back in order to get the tab out. I'm sorry I can't be of more help, but I really can't remember exactly how I managed to get that brace off, I just remember it wasn't the easiest.
