FAQ
--------------------------------
few questions:

1) Any other colors? Particularly RED?
2) What would be the difference between the Rally and Regular strut bars? Would that tightening center flex a lot?
3) How would this compare to the Neuspeed?
4) How would this compare to the Comptech bars?
5) Would the lower front bar do anything? (Compared to lower rear tie bar?)
6) How long is this going to last? And when you shipping?

Good Questions ... =)

1) Cusco offers only 1 color, blue is their color symbol for their bars and suspension.

2) Customer has told me that Rally Type ST is stiffer because all steel structure... the center joint is very very stiff.

3) I would say Type ST would perform same as Neuspeed, or stronger cus Neuspeed is hollow.... but neuspeed does look simple and boring(i had it before, no one like it at show).

4) Comptech is Titanium Structured, Price is Sky rocket high.
I will order one just to compare later . Comptech does not mount the outter bolt ... where the Cusco/neuspeed/eibach does.

5)You will definitely felt the difference , It actually perform better than Rear Lower Tie(compare to OBX's) ... I believe Acura-tl/acura-cl forum have discuss this earlier . The bar does improve tighter cornering and response/stiffness .

6)Unfortunately I have to end the groupbuy next friday, because I will ship these bars along with my container , which will arrived around mid/late June and shipped immediately. Local can pick it up without shipping cost . I may not offer another Groupbuy for this bar after this .

More QUESTIONS RDX:

1) Any pics of the ST on a car?
2) The OS is just for show then? If it isn't as strong as Neuspeed- what's the point?
3) Why is the OS more expensive? Is it just b/c it looks more "showy"?
4) They don't make a rear lower tie bar? Damn. I want one of those to complete the suspension.


1) I am waiting for the bar to arrived, I do not have the ST on the Accord yet, but I do have Customer using ST on the Delsol ... basically same bar different mount.

2)Let me tell you, you can't feel the difference, I have Neuspeed, and now used Cusco OS . They both work great . Just that Neuspeed look damn Ugly . This is just STB bar, not a sway bar .
Quality Wise is Top Notch direct Import from Japan . I have had fitment issue with some Neuspeed bar ...

3) I believe OS is same as older Eibach 's , More expensive? I am not sure thats how Cusco price range are, More material used and Manufactoring cost I believe. Cost more to make 3 pieces with bolt between, then one piece structure like Neuspeed. Instead of making one structure mold, they have to make 3 different mold .

4) I have asked them why they don't make Lower Tie bar, they said because the way our car design, lower Tie bar will only stiff up chassis . Work the same way as Adding Weld to your lower chassis . If you really want to buy one, get Skunk2 or obx.


Hope you can make your decision, Shout out more questions if you have to. =)

Just to let you know, if i were you, buy it for the look instead....

I am sure all the bar works the same thing ... Stiff up the Chassis and the Strut.


If you really want a very efficient system, You should also buy an Alluminum Upper Strut mount, because the Stock mount is make of semi-Rubber and weak struts, so it is really Sluggish but it also provides comfort and sound deadening .

I have alluminum Upper Strut Mounts, I can hear the banging noise of all 4 corners . but you definitely feel the tightness.

And Only if you are using Race Spec Coilover with very fast rebound rate and stiffness "might" tell the difference(eventho not likely)


Many People liked the Type OS design because of the Thickness the bar look ... it does look more sexy don't u think?.
