Default Acura TL rear sway bar on '04 Accord

WOW!

It took two weeks for Acura to bring in the 17mm rear sway bar after I
ordered it but it took me less than an hour to install it laying on my back
in the garage.

I can't believe the improvement in handling! Simply amazing for a 3mm
increase over the stock size too. The new bar has approximately 50% greater
cross sectional area but gives 100% better driving feel.

The Acura TL and Accord have the same platform so lots of the suspension
parts are interchangeable.

The TL comes stock with a 25mm front, 17mm rear sway bars and the Accord has
a 25mm front, none/14/13mm (DX/LX - 4cyl/V6).

Although the Accord has a nice firm (European) ride in a straight line in
leans excessively in the corners. After reading about the same handling
concern in a few Accord forums the consensus was to install the TL rear sway
bar. The TL has both the 17mm and 20mm rear bars but the larger rear also
comes with a larger (27mm) front.

The people into 'ricing-up' their Accord go with the 20mm bar as well as
larger wheels, strut braces, coil overs and stuff that I ain't planning to
do.

The obvious choice for my driving style and otherwise stock Accord was the
TL's 17mm bar.

I does make a BIG difference and the parts are very reasonable priced from
an Acura Dealer. Total cost was less $70can which included the bar,
bushings and bushing holder.

(my bar was delivered with a Honda sticker on it. )

Since Acura name is just a North American thing.
Parts were most likely made in Japan.

I didn't check where the part came from but there were a bunch of stickers
on it... one says Honda.
