I'm not a suspension expert by any stretch, but when you say it turns better, do you mean solely the back end or the car as a whole. Does this decrease understeer even though it's on the rear of the vehicle?
you feel diffrence in the back more, of course it will decrease understeer of your car, but you will have oversteer as well. so you have to go for the front as well. am not face any oversteer right now coz am running 235/40/19 bridgstoen 050 potenza which give me hard grip in the road.

I put a Progress 22mm RSB on my V6. There are hundreds of posts in a thread around here talking about the "ideal" sway bar configuration for front/rear. It looks like you have the I4 so you might want to check that out and find yourself a good FWB.

Edit: http://www.driveaccord.net/forums/showthread.php?t=76953
my god. that post is almost killing me, am not sure what they finally said about i4 accord sway bars.

do you know anything useful about any aftermarket front sway bar or how to upgrade that tiny bar

Looks awesome. I always tighten the sways when the car on the ground with its weight on it , also with the adjustable links you can dial in preload on the bars which will make the car act different when at 95% or so of the capability of the car. Are you doing this with stock tires? If so everything will change when you put some good rubber under you like the BF Goodrich comp 2's that I will be getting soon. GL

i am running with 19 HFP wheels 235/45/19 bridgeston potenza 050 do you think its good ? and what is the your suggestion now ? do i need links badly ?

Any of these rear sway bars would fit the 2013-up:

Endlinks are not required, but are stronger. From my experience I haven't seen too many broken OEM end links, but have received the input that many felt they better translated the stiffness of the sway bar to the chassis vs OEM

Thanks for your help

news: i test my car now in stiffness mode and i drive the car like a crazy turning like hell. i faced no oversteer issues due my tires grip ( Treadwear 120 ) but i checked the end link its start to crack in the top and bend because of the wieght preload. i discussed the issue with one of our suspension expert and we saw its slight bend. so it might not crack becouse of the bending so it will live more. the result in this we have no 100% stifness of 22mm bars. time for now to order progress end link and kill this once for all.

But i like the stifness it dam sticky

i took a video for this : sorry for unclear video and voice coz i pushed myself under the car and faced a problem once i decide to go out :lmao:
