body roll/ sway bars

I have eibach springs and tokico blue shocks and I love the way my car rides, but I still have too much body roll. I don't have money for stiffer springs,and besides a larger diameter anti-roll bar is better than stiffer springs in balancing a cars cornering ability with springs a close second. Springs and dampers I have but I really need a sway bar that will give me more lateral grip. I don't want oem. I've heard the fronts on our cars are the largest of the ef chassis, and it's just not enough. Any ideas?[/i]

Oem crx si for your rear.  They are the largest oem at 15mm.  The rear from a hatch si is only 13mm.

Might have to do that. Was hoping for some aftermarket ones. But that sounds like an effective mod

If you decide to go oem you cant use it with your stock exhaust the muffler gets in the way just figured id pass that on sense I wasnt told about that until I got there =/.

i believe he means resonator. that big can right before the exhaust tip leaves the bumper. That thing is just in the way all together.

I've got a two inch straight pipe from the resonator to the bumper

You exhaust and piping must have not been centered correctly or installed correctly.

I have an oem replacement style exhaust on my hatch and have the 15mm bar on there with no issues whatsoever.  I also have the 13mm bar on my sedan and it has an eBay catback designed for a crx and I have no issues again.   Of course the crx catback is not a direct fit, I had to extend the piping in a few spots but it sits like an oem exhaust and it has 2.5" piping and no issues with the sway bar at all.

What kind of muffler or exhaust are you using?

Nothing was installed incorrectly it's all stock from the factory the passenger side is what has a clearance problem. I did happen to look in your build thread and noticed your exhaust is completely different from oem your muffler is located at the end of the car just on the drivers side compared to the stock which hangs in the middle under the trunk area which is why it makes it impossible to fit its the length of the stock muffler that hurts you if it was possibly 3 or 4 inches shorter it might fit trust me ive tried numerous times and ive also tucked up my exhaust as high up as it would go and it still cant clear. I need an exhaust like yours or something along the lines of a straight pipe.

Oh man, I haven't had that sedan for over 2 years.  Lol. I seriously need to update it.  I have a different one now.  I'll see if I can take a picture his Sunday and show my new exhaust and how it fits to maybe help you out.
