Default Rear sway bar!!! Where the hell do i mount this?!?

Ok I just got my anti-roll kit from eibach, and im trying to figure out where/how to mount the rear sway bar. I have aftermarket LCA's but there is no sway bar in the rear as stock on my car.

Eibach includes mounts for the rear bar if you dont have them stock, and they include directions as well but the pics in the directions are AWFUL, you cant even tell whats the hell is going on. So I have these mounts, but im not sure where they go or how to attach them.

Can anyone help? Dont they go somewhere near the rear LCA?

Swaybar mounts to endlinks on the control arms and to the subframe. The endlinks don't come on the car already (and may not be included in the kit). You may even have to drill your LCA's to mount the endlinks.

it looks like you got 96-00 rear mounting brackets and endlinks

as far as the front its hard to say from the pic, but if you have no mounting points in your LCAs you'll be screwed again...

My civic is an ex and has a OEM front swaybar, so it should have the mounting points in front right?

ALso what do I do about the rear? Get different brackets? Drill Holes?

Why not call the place you got it from, tell them the problem, send this kit back and get the one for your vehicle.

well i got it off ebay brand new from a guy who had ordered the wrong part for his car. The dumbass mislabeled the auction and said the kit was for a 92+ when it clearly states with the included paperwork it is for a 96-00.


Anyway after an hour on hold with eibach the basically tell me they wont do **** MAYBE one of their resllered will help me out. They give me numbers of two local resellers and now im on HOLD again with them... JEEZE

Ok I'm gonna try and make it work using washers for the rear mounts. My questions is:

Are 92-95 and 96-00 front bars identical?

In the rear, do the endlinks attach to the LCA or something else? Cause in some pictures i look at they attach to the LCA while in others it looks like they go somewhere else....

Please HELP! Im gonna make this work!

email the seller on ebay - tell him he mislabled the auction & the suspension conponents ARE NOT COMPATIBLE... you can use dc2 (integra) components on EG but not ek (96-00) components

return it & get your money back...if he says no tell him you'll file a complaint w/ebay for false advertising/misrepresenting item for auction

i just jacked the car up and the front bar looks like it is the same mounting points as the one thats on there (OEM) u sure the front wont fit?

I kno I can always go after the seller and I can get my money back cause i use paypal, but if I can make this fit I would sure prefer that.

There is def no way it fits?

Did you try the washers? Did that help it fit? I was under the impressions the rear suspension components were the same, if not very similar between the 92-95 and 96-00. (I've never owned a 92-95 tho, so I'm not sure)

with all the horror stories I see here on H-T about people ripping & tearing the rear subframe, I would rather make sure I have the right parts instead of making it work. just my $.02

i agree w/ adirondackR, Just email the seller and if he won't give your money back file a complaint w/ EBAY, that is the way to go, don't mess w/ the wrong parts
