i'm planning to get the tl sway bar but before i do, i just want to hear some experiences with it on the sedan....things like: what size rear sway bar, handling, ride quality, things like that....

thanks....i searched but i can seem to find too many sedans with rear sway bars...

preferrably sedan owners plz but coupes welcome to answer

I have the stock 17inch rear TL Sway bar but I think you should get the stock 6spd TL one. I think the 6spd one is 21 inches.

yup I really did mean millimeters :p
As for ride quality, there is definitely a noticeable difference. Much tighter cornering I must say

From what I heard, you won't feel as much body roll taking corners at high speeds and the ride is better compared to the stock 17mm. Comptech also has a 20mm sway for our sedans you could look at that one as well or opt. for the 6spd rear sway.

i have the TL 6sp sway bar, which is 20mm. I did not upgrade the front sway. I noticed much better handling and it has never caused any problems.

I'd recommend it.

I'm w/ eccsnow, best $43 I ever spent, I have an 04 sedan, it handles MUCH better than stock, and I'm not Auto-X'n that thing, so it's perfect for me.

Welcome to v6p! Thanks for contributing!

I read the whole tutorial, and I must agree that it is extremely detailed and thorough. I would even venture to say that it was 10x more thorough than the ISIS Service Publications on iN that Honda technicians use. Great link. The only things I have to add is that, (1) on the 03-05 L4 sedan, the 22mm Comptech rear sway does not have any rubbing issues; and (2) the four bushing holder bolts (the ones with the 12mm hex head) should be torqued to 16 lb-ft.
