Question-- After install new rear sway bar, do I need to do alignment?
If you haven't had an alignment in a while than its probably a good idea to get one anyways but normally no you don't need an alignment when you install a new RSB.

Bringing this back from the dead.

I just did this on a 2015 EX and it took the handling from un-acceptable to acceptable. First I got Si wheels and new tires but the rear sway bar was what I should've done first. Doing both makes it a decent handling car. Doing both was also very budget friendly.

For reference I used to have an EP3 (05 Si) with coilovers and a mk7 GTI that I used to have as well. Those 2 cars spoiled handling for me and I really wanted to keep this 2015 EX as a daily (and drive it until the wheels fall off) because I got a great deal for it but the handling was just friggin terrible stock. No idea how anyone drives it stock and thinks that it feels safe... anyways this thread saved me from getting coilovers.

What, exactly, did you do?

Since my last post in this thread, the '12 LX I had was traded in for a '15 LX. I'm interested to know what you did and your impressions, especially if you did a RSB and you're hapy with it, and why.

I did exactly what the first post of this thread did. I believe its the 2014 Si 20mm RSB. Part numbers are on the first post.
Like I said above. Initially I bought Si Wheels (17 inch) and new tires (215/45/17 I think, dont remember exactly but its the stock 17 inch tire size). New Tires/Wheels helped a bit but the car overall still felt "floaty" and unstable at times. Then I found this thread and did the RSB and its within an acceptable performance now.

I used to feel like the steering response wasn't as good and often times I'd feel like the car was slightly drifting around after I change lanes...sort of like it was unstable. I've driven a Prius that had better handling that this thing imo... well that feeling is completely gone now. When I take turns at street lights its obvious that the car is more stable overall. So basically I just did wheels/tires + rsb and the car is fixed with the exception of a lack of like 50hp and a better tranny of course but its an acceptable daily driver now.

So I have a 2012 civic SI and want to upgrade my rsb. Seems like the 2014 is the way to go. Do I really need all the additional part other than the sway bar?

That was the first plan....but my front sway bar is about 18mm and I don't want to induce too much oversteer. Then the progress is like twice the price.

You won’t though. I run full stiff on mine

It doesn’t matter what year it is. The car understeers a lot as is. People have switched their front bar to the dx 8th gen bar and it improves it slightly.

And what is the thickness of the '12 Si bar?

I ask because knowing that difference would help in figuring the stiffness percentage change, and feel, going from one to the other.

I went from the stock 16 to an Alta 19 on my MINI and the difference in feel and handling was definitely there.

Hi Scotty,

This part list was for the OP who owns a 2012 civic coupe SI, but will it work for a 2014 civic LX sedan model? I also plan on buying the mooq end links (k750125 & K750126). Just want to make sure before purchasing and handing off to my mechanic to install.

Asking you since I think you currently own a 2014 lx model as well? Much thanks!
