Default Front sway bar 95 civic dx< swaybar ?

95 civic dx no front factory sway bar, a few questions before i grab the torch to loosen things up
everything factory, installing:
poly bushings
front integra lower control arms (needed mounts for endlinks)
energy front sway bar links
what are my options for front sway bars i would assume a civic si would work but how many mm and how much of a difference will it make?
is there even threads for the sway bar bushings bolts in the subframe? or do i need to tap? if i get a integra sway bar will it need a different part number sway bar bushing brackets? are the bushings the same size? confused out of my mind and local guys giving me very mixed answers
if i get the brackets and bushings for a integra can i run a front itr bar? ideally this would be best correct? want to stay oem parts
thanks guys

if you already have the full lca from an integra then all you need is sway bar. d brackets/bushings. and also endlinks.

if you get a si/ex sway bar make sure you get the civic endlinks. if you go with a teg bar then get teg endlinks.

i have both in stock and ready to sell. private party sell. this isnt a commercial post. lol.

front integra and civic sway bar endlinks are the same.
the D brackets are different but all sized integra,type r, civic si bars will fit?
so a type r D bracket will fit on my factory civic dx threads/mounting points?...
is the sub frame have factory threads to install the bolts or do i have to tap
thanks

the endlinks are different. the endlinks "mounting angles" are different on the civic opposed to the integra.

and to mount the d bracket..on the lca there is a welded nut and a stud. the hardware(bolt and nut) will be 12mm heads.

how different are these "mounting angles" because both part numbers are the same from energy suspensions and your the first person i have heard mention that....are we talking a few degrees or 90 degrees?

ok. i came home. i checked. i think the teg bar is off an ls and it.s 24mm or almost an inch. the ex civic bar is 22mm. the difference in the endlink "mounting holes" is huge. the civic one sits flat whereas the integra one tilts back like 55degreeish. and the oem endlinks i have are two diff kinds. hope that helps.

92-95 civic front sways use a straight up and down type of endlink
integras (at least 98-01) use a right angle type.

I have a 00 teg front and rear sway setup on my EG.

rear end links are almost identical.

I'll post pictures of the two different styles if I can get IE to stop screwing with me....

**edit**
Click the image to open in full size.
92-95 civic style sway is on the left, #18 is the end link. (some tegs had this setup)

on the right is the typical teg style that I was referring to, #6 is the end link. (most tegs had this setup)


Click the image to open in full size.
rear sway, #6 (teg and civic look the same)

i dont understand how this is possible if both 94-01 integra and 92-95 endlinks are the EXACT same part number from energy suspensions then either a civic or integra sway bar is compatible? because im getting a great deal on a front itr bar but i dont no if it will fit

i dont know why they would be the same number when as you can see the oem units are different.

also pm me your "deal" on the itr bar and i will see if i can beat it.
