A great enhancement to a stock vehicle

These Eibach anti-roll kit bars perform exactly as advertised. I purchased them for my 2002 Honda Accord SE and now the car's handling is tighter, with less torsional movement around turns. It wont make a front-wheel-drive car feel like a rear-wheel-drive racer, but it certainly makes driving more fun.
Installation seemed simple, but it all depends are the car and age of the car you have. I used install information from several websites over the poorly printed black-and-white directions provided. Since my car is a little older, my rear sway bar links were seized on to the mounting bracket of the car, and so I needed to hack them off and buy new links, as these are not included in this particular assembly. Sometimes no amount of WD-40/Rust Buster will work. Once that was done, the rear went on fine. As for the front, the only problem was that the bushings are a little bigger than the original ones, so it was hard to screw the stock clamps back in. I had to use the jack to hold the bar in place so I could reattach the screws and brackets.
If money is a concern, I would suggest the rear sway replacement, as that is significantly larger than the stock bar. The front is roughly the same, so the benefit is marginalized.
Overall, it makes driving more fun, even for a daily driver car that doesn't hit the track.
