any tips/recommendations before installing TL-S sway bars?

picked up everything based on the sticky Threadon DA.net:

Front Sway (27.2mm): TL Type-S 6MT (solid)
51300-SEP-A21 - SPRING, FR. STABILIZER - 1x
51306-SEP-A01 - BUSH, FR. STABILIZER HOLDER - 2x
51308-SDA-A00 - BRACKET, FR. STABILIZER - 2x

Rear Sway (20mm): TL Type-S 6MT (use this if you ARE upgrading the front sway bar)
52300-SEP-A11 - SPRING, RR. STABILIZER - 1x
52308-S3M-A00 - HOLDER - 2x
52306-SEP-A11 - BUSH, RR. STABILIZER HOLDER - 2x


also, got a DC Sports Front strut bar. actually saw DreaminAccord selling his engine cover and really liked his


i will be installing Front Strut Bar myself as it pretty simple and i've done them in the past on other cars

the Front/Rear Sway Bars will be installed when i get my Compliance Bushings done soon. The front one will be free and rear will be $60 totaling about $600ish


do i have everything i need? are there any greases, lubricants that i'm forgetting that isn't included? thanks in advance for your help










BTW, if anyone wants to know what i paid in 2017 since there are a lot of people who did this many years before, will gladly take a pic of what i paid in CO

Forget the compliance bushing. Get a whole new control arm:

Had the same set-up on mine (including the DC Sport FSB) and after several months ended up getting the Progress 24 mm rear bar to stiffen the rear even more and reduce under steer. Rotates almost as well as my G35 (Hotchkiss bars on it) does.

But compared to stock the TL-S bars are a big upgrade.

i'll look into it after i get the bars in but from what i've read, the Sway Bars make a huge improvement which is what i'm hoping for...if i had enough to grab these...i would probably look into another performance upgrade 1st probably

i'll have to consider that Scottwax...Hotchkiss makes some great suspension parts...had them on my old ride and was happy with them

long story short, there's 4 Acura dealerships within Denver area...i checked with the 2 biggest and decided to go w/the 2nd since they were:

$132.10 savings...both offered a 10% discount and i would recommend asking because it never hurts

Hard part is dropping the back of the subframe to remove the front bar and put in the new one. Rear one is pretty straight forward.

Debating adding adjustable end links to mine.

got everything installed last Thurs.

Total was $730ish, main things:

1. Removal/Install of Sway Bars and other Parts
2. Alignment
3. Compliance Bushings replaced
4. Seized bolt cost an additional $100 but my guy was nice enough to not charge extra for Sway Bar install






i haven't took it canyon carving or to some mountain roads yet and don't feel too much difference
