  • SI sway bars

    I put a set of SI sway bars on my GX and they work great! I drive a lot of highway miles and going through on and off ramps that are big sweepers used to cause a lot of body roll. My brother found a thread about being able to put SI sway bars on your non-SI Civic so I ordered the parts and tried it. The body roll is significantly reduced and the car handles much better in these sweepers. You don't notice a comfort difference driving down the highway because you haven't messed with the shocks and struts. It was $100 for parts and $100 to install.

    Amazingly, the OEM rear sway bar is only about as thick as your little finger.

    Here is the link to the page that tells you how to do this:

    What year is your civic and does the rear sway bar block the rear filter plate?

      Well if it does, then so does the OEM GX rear bar. They are identical except for the bar thickness. I put on the rear SI bar about a month ago, but not the front.

        What year? I don't remember seeing a rear sway bar on my 99.

          Mine is an 08. The hint from the original poster's link (8thcivic.com) is that the 8th generation started in 06. So you'd have to check on, say, the 6th-gen part of civic forums here:

          and look around.

          Good luck! Even if your's didn't have a factory bar but other 99s did, and if the factory bar comes with new frame brackets (mine did) and your subframe has the threaded holes, you shouldn't have much trouble.
