Default Reviews of Sway Bars

I am interested in buying a sway bar for my 2010 EX. Does anyone have opinions on brands or options, front or rear? I know Cobb has used a Progress Honda Fit Sway bar.

My primary reason for wanting one is for handing at interstate speeds and for less body roll during turns.

Thanks all!

If this is a new problem Id do an inspection of your underside, tire psi to make sure everything is ok.

There is a lot that effects "roll" on this car, including tires. Although I want a new front sway bar, I havent done so yet. Id get the biggest one I can and urthene fittings. I did however find my links were loose and replaced them.

The rear is a progress fit sway bar. In the trunk is a rear strut tower brace. You need to install this on top of the large flat washers of the shock absorber assembly and crank it down. The curtis hitch helps to firm up the rear and provides more weight down low below the axle line.

Having said all that, I like it. I slow own to 60 to take ramps.

Below are a links to a few bars. The B pillar brace I had helped to reduce the corrections need whle on a curve, but i Had to remove it for the slowsl seat relocation brackets.

Awesome, Cobb! Thank you for posting the information, as well as the links to the bars. If I were to buy/install one bar at a time, then I should go for the rear kit first, correct?

Yes, you can mix and match.

The rear is about the easiest to install. The front requires you to drop the K frame and some big sockets.

Springs help too, I got a set for sale from my car.

Oh, here is the rear strut brace. Ultra Racing Rigid Rear Upper Strut Bar Arm Anti Roll Brace 08 11 Fit Insight | eBay
