Chassis and Suspension similarity and part interchangeability between Accord/ TSX/ TL.....
So you can get the TL sway to bolt on to an accord, and TSX shares some of the exact same parts.... so which chassis/suspension parts are more similar, and which might we be able to get other parts from (i.e. braces, brakes, springs, aftermarket parts, etc).
Here's my preliminary take on it, but I'd love it if a TL owner could help us out:
The TSX and Accord seem to share more suspension components, and the TL seems quite different... regardless of what magazines say. The following is why I've concluded this:
For instance, the exact same sway bars, bushings, and brackets (both OEM and aftermarket) are shared between the TSX and Accord. The TL bar geometry, thickness, bushings, and brackets are different (though you can bolt it on). The aftermarket bar from several different manufacturers is different between the Accord and TL, though they are the same between the Accord and TSX. I believe the springs and struts are shared between the Accord and TSX, but not between the Accord and TL. The TSX even has the same displacement as the Accord, albeit in a more performance-tuned 2.4 form. I'd be willing to bet that many of the engine and tranny parts swap between the accord and TSX... something not likely between the accord and the TL.
You may be able to mount the TL bar on the Accord because the bushing area and end link mounts are in the right location, but the bar geometry otherwise is totally different. Most 7th Gen accords have a metal exhaust bracket and rubber hanger that will directly contact and bind with the TL bar.
How about strut/firewall braces... are they the same? In that category, the TL and Accord seem to be the most compatible. How about other chassis parts? I'd like to get the misconceptions cleared out on this before anyone gets hurt
