Default Rear sway bars for DC2?

Hey guys I'm trying to look for a bigger sway bar for my DC2. I am actually looking into the ASR 32mm hollow bar, but from the looks of it, they're only meant to bolt up onto their own ASR subframe brace? I'm currently on Function 7 subframe brace and LCAs. Any insight on this?

Eibach offers a 25mm 3-way adjustable bar that will bolt up to any subframe brace. There are quite a few track guys here in SoCal that are using this bar and love it. (myself included)

Here are the specs compared to an OEM 22mm ITR bar.


OE bar: 22 mm (0.87 in) solid
OE measured bar rate: 51 N/mm (292 lbs/in)
OE bar weight: 3.78 kg (8.4 lbs)

Eibach bar: 25 mm (1 in) tubular, adjustable
Eibach measured bar rate:
P1 = 73 N/mm (418 lbs/in) +43%
P2 = 94 N/mm (533 lbs/in) +84%
P3 = 111 N/mm (630 lbs/in) +118%

Eibach bar weight: 3.15 kg (7.0 lbs)

The endlinks in the picture are NOT included.

ASR makes a 25mm hollow bar as well in literally identical specs to the Eibach. Likely the same bar.

You are correct. We (Eibach) have had this bar in production for 3-4 years and more recently started working with ASR to replace their previous 24mm bar.

from the jhpusa website, the 25mm bar does not work with ITR control arms? Interested in trying this bar out if it doesn't require me to change shocks

The ASR 32mm rear bar? Yeah, I ran one on my ITR... stock lower arms, hell... it even had the stock exhaust on it.
Resurrecting from the dead.

I have a 32 mm rear bar and cannot go full stiff in the rear with the ITR rear LCAs.

Was wondering if anyone had an issue like this. End links hit the control arms when I try to put them all the way stiff.

I'm considering notching the control arms and welding in similar gauge metal to allow the end links to go all the way back.

If I went back to stock integra rear LCAs I'd need to get my rear shock mounts changed.

Edit:

I'm running a the second-to-stiffest rear bar.

My eibach 25mm rear sway bar makes contact with my rear ITR LCAs at full stiff. It has self notched itself...
