Okay okay okay.. I know what your all thinking. This kid can't search the forums at ALL!
Maybe I can't.. its honestly VERY possible. But at least know that I tried at least 10 different times!
So.. take that into consideration before bashing me. And then you can bash me if you must! :thmsup:
Okay. So. I've decided upon a front and rear TL-S sway bar. Most likely doing the rear first.. and then the front. Followed by a SMALL drop. 3/4" in the front, 1/2" in the back.
Anyways.. after tedious searching.. I have come to you guys with a question.
Where in the world do I purchase TL-S sway bars. Obviously off an Acura parts website... but which one might you recommend?
Also, how much should I expect to pay for the rear? the front?

Thanks guys!

Or an Acura dealership so you don't end up paying extra shipping, about $60 for RSB and $100 for FSB, including related bushings and brackets.

You should do both bars at the same time for maximum peace of mind, some people will maintain they never had issues with just the TL-S RSB, but that's likely because the car hasn't been pushed near/beyond the limit, one DA member did recently loose control with only the RSB and totaled the car. Your decision if you want to risk it.

So you recommend heading over to an Acura dealership and just purchasing the bar? I know I need more than the bar though.. what other parts do I need?

The rear is 17mm, after reading Aviography's post I guess I ought to look into the front bar, myself. Some on the forum have written that RSB is enough, and I don't push my car that hard, but better safe than sorry.

I also picked mine up from Acura, paid $50-55.

Chipperf, many will also recommend an alignment after you get the bars on.

He said TL-S sway bars. I think it's 28mm front, and 20mm rear.

Huh, I'll have to find my old order, then. It's been a little while, thought I had ordered the Type-S bar myself.

Okay guys.. here is what I need! I am very confused now.

The rear is 20mm? Correct..
Could someone please just list the three parts I need from the dealership on here.

Also, the rear is 27.xmm? Correct..
And could you also please list the parts I need for that one here..

I've gotten confused with all the different parts list on this entire website, and want to be absolutely sure before I do anything!
Thanks guy!

What's not clear and confusing? The information is very clear, use 17mm RSB if only doing RSB, use 27.2mm FSB and 20mm RSB if doing both, it's not that hard to comprehend.

Parts needed are listed below:

Front Sway (27.2mm): TL-S 6MT
51300-SEP-A21 - SPRING, FR. STABILIZER - 1x
51306-SEP-A01 - BUSHING, FR. STABILIZER HOLDER - 2x
51308-SDA-A00 - BRACKET, FR. STABILIZER - 2x

Rear Sway (20mm): TL-S 6MT
52300-SEP-A11 - SPRING, RR. STABILIZER - 1x
52308-S3M-A00 - HOLDER - 2x
52306-SEP-A11 - BUSHING, RR. STABILIZER HOLDER - 2x

Rear Sway (17mm) TL (Base model)
52300-SEP-A03, 17mm Bar x1(p/n for 2005 base TL)
52306-SEP-A02, Bushing x 2
52308-S3M-A00, Bracket x 2

If this is still not clear, perhaps you should leave this modification alone.

Give your local Acura dealer the part #s and quantities. They'll know what they are.
