DC Sport CS-2 Vs. Neuspeed Strut Bar

I'm planning on getting a strut bar and not sure which one to get.
which one do you guys prefer or think is better?
price isnt an issue, since they're within the same range respectively

i was dumb and didn't do research, just bought alot of suspension parts. Realizing the DC sport strut bar didn't fit properly with my coilover dampering. I ended up taking off the dampering nozzles after it was set.

Next time I adjust dampering, ill have to take the strut bar off.

Overall, the stock suspension on the accord F'in sucks . Before i felt one wheel going one way and the other, going the other way. Nothin compared to my toyota until i got this new suspension for my accord. o well , But now? OMG it kicks a$$. coilovers + sways + strut bar

its already been 1500 miles on it, nothin wrong, no noises, first couple miles are really bumpy but it stiffens up. best purchase i have ever made.

actually come to think of it...i don't it will fit...
if the part # is CSB3022, it will exclude 6 speed and hybrids.
you might have to remove the 6 spd bar in order for it to fit.
but i could be wrong.

$135????? is that new or used?
if it's new, that's cheaped. I've only seen it for about 140-165.
where did you get it if you dont mind me asking?

I ask some people around and they said it will fit.. I just want to verify here if it does... Since, people have different answers and why it doesn't fit... They said that the 6 speed doesn't fit because of ur stock strut... I drive a 5 speed auto and my oem strut isn't like urs.. They say that it will fit from 05 and up...

again i just want to verify with some people that have done it with 06-07 coupe?

i didnt replace mine i added the neuspeed in addition to the stock one... works great, car is a little tighter in autocrossing but im sure the bar will increase the life of the body of the car too since it's helping to absorb the flex from sharp turning

*Clears Throat* *AHEM *AHEM

The answer to that question is that the 6speed strut extrudes out.. the smart way to do is take the 6speed strut and add an after-market strut...

Since the oem strut is in the way....

Did i explain it right??? hehe

this only applies to 6speeders since they have a strut bar that comes up more than the the 5AT...

And how are you gunna fit a aftermarket strut if you have something already in its way??

Sorry but this is confusing me, I have an 03 coupe 6speed. The DC will definitely fit OVER the 6speed strut? And it matches the V2? (haha, bonus!)

I have a buddy that had a DC and decided to go a different route with his suspension and tried the Neuspeed. He said that the Neuspeed felt stiffer and more solid than DC, anyone else tried different ones? Results? Comments?
