2017 Honda Accord Coupe Touring
Can't seem to find any strut bars for the 17 coupe anyone know of some?
Thank you for that, sir.The 9th gen aftermarket strut bars fit for all model Accords (except the LX). I am using the DC sport strut bar. It will contact the plastic engine cover on the 3.5, but clears the engine if you remove it.
Strut tower bar. You know, the bar that bolts to the top of the two front strut towers in the engine compartment?You are talking about tower struts?
Minor issues: creaks and groans from the body and interiorWhat effects do you get if you have some flex?
Curious why my 4cyl Touring has a tower strut bar and yet not yours. Perhaps I should compare with and without the struts on the Accord...easy enough to take it out.Minor issues: creaks and groans from the body and interior
Serious issues: it won't track consistently when pushing it through corners and over bumps, in extreme cases odd tire wear and inability to maintain alignment settings.
Bottom line, you want the suspension doing the work of absorbing road imperfections and reacting to stopping and cornering forces, not a flexible chassis. If you want to better understand things like this in more detail but without having an engineering degree, get the book by Herb Adams titled Chassis Engineering or How To Make Your Car Handle by Fred Puhn.

It would appear the OP has checked out on his own thread.Ooops! Thought you are the OP.
Did you notice a difference between the factory one and the aftermarket one?It would appear the OP has checked out on his own thread.
Anyway, he has a Touring coupe which would have had a strut tower bar from the factory, I think he is looking for aftermarket upgrade options.
Personally, I used the UltraRacing version which is what is pictured above.
