Although SEARCH is your friend-might I suggest that you look at ADDCO or ST for a set of streetable/autocross bars. Our '96 HB had ST's front and rear and the car was very responsive. Then again I did have stiffer springs and Konis all around. It really depends on your plan for the car. BTW: personal preference is ADDCO (available direct or from Summit)

both comptech and srr only make the rear. looking for an all around set up (front & rear) or what would you use in the front with the comptech or srr in the rear?

Suspension Techniques rear bar worked great for me (00 EX coupe, as well as 92 VX hatch). No reinforcement used, looked fine after 2.5 years of use on my coupe. I used the bar with APEXi WS coilovers also.

if you cant afford comptech, then go with 99-00 Si front sway with Si LCAs and forks, and a ITR rear with beaks kit. good idea to upgrade to stiffer springs while you are at it.

I just bought the eibach anit-roll kit for the 92-95, its 22mm in front and 19mm in back, i should have it in like 3 days. Just bought it on ebay $150.00 brand new....(some guy bought the wrong kit cause he didnt have a stock front swaybar, which you need for the kit)

I'll post how it goes ASAP

depends on how you drive. if you wanna dial out understeer, just keep the front and beef up the rear. i have an si sway on the back, and i kinda want more. its 13mm. integra rear sways are 14. ctr rear is 17, or itr i dont remember. comptechs and ss those go around 22mm. hope the numbers help you.
