Question Front and rear sway bar picks

Okay so I am finally ready to swap out my sway bars....
So here is the ONE MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION.....
what is the absolute best sway bar for the front in terms of performance?
What would be the second best?
What would be the best REAR sway bar for performance?
What would be the second best?
Thanks in advance for everyones replies...
I know this has probably been answered about 100 times but I am at work and the search function of this website and WEBSENSE don't get along and I can't search old threads for the information.


THANK YOU FOR YOUR ANSWERS!!!!!

You may have already done it, but I recommend reading the posts in the sticky below under the Tire and Suspension section about the TL Type-S bars. I'm looking at going with these, since they are a balanced package and can be purchased from an online Acura dealer for about 120 or 140ish if you replace the front end links.

any idea how you would put the front sway bar in? I heard you have to drop the sub frame?

No sub frame dropping, just the removal of the Apipe(i4) and Jpipe(v6), then its all about pita maneuvering and etc. enjoy the headaches lol.

You might want to put the front sway bar in. After I had the LT-S front put in I noticed a dramatic improvement in cornering. My tires howl a lot less on on/off-ramps after the front TL-S sway.

TL-s REAR sway bar???

Just get the TL-s front and rear sway bars. The tl-s front sway is solid where as the tl is not solid.

I second that. After riding on the tl-s rear for about a bit over a year now with the new suspension the front is definitely lacking the stiffness to really take advantage of the stiffer front shocks/springs. Really need the matched front bar.

Suspension topic btw. That being said, the TL/TL-S sways are probably the "best value" sway upgrades. Bigger diameter sways could yield better performance..

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the TL front sway the same as ours (25.4mm)? IIRC, the TL-S front sway went from a hollow 27.Xmm to a solid 27mm on the 2007-2008 type S.

If you want to get the 20mm TL-S rear sway, I'd recommend the 27mm TL-S sway up front. The 17mm seems to have a nice balance with our stock front sway from what I've read in the sway bar sticky thread (ref: http://www.v6performance.net/forums/...ad.php?t=80747). You might want to glance over the first few pages, I think it's all covered there.

I put the TL-S 20mm rear bar in last weekend and I'm riding on stock 16" wheels. It corners much better, but I would have gone with the 17mm bar if I didn't plan on installing the front bar. I'm waiting until I can get some help before installing the front bar. I'm planning on installing the front TL-S end links too since the bolt holes on the bar are larger than the Accord's. I have the 6 speed strut tower brace installed, and the front end needs to be tighter to balance out the rear bar.
