You should upgrade the rear sway bar also.

I concur with hulk. I am running that bar, as well as the rear 776 and 777 bars from UR.

Why replace a two point bar with another two point bar? If you want less lean swap out you factory sway bars.

I think base I4 models don't have strut bars. Many base models cheap out on such things.

At one time, depending on a manufacturer a front sway bar was only used on some V8 models.

As far as I can tell the factory one is just fine. Penski racing used pretty much the same diameter in his T/A cars. The main issue is front sway bar and end links with Accords.

If you want a tight setup, using a heaver sway bar with heim joints instead of urethane / rubber inserts. As most racers fabricate for all out performance.

good point, that bull shit OEM same as UR bar .NO REASON TO REPLACE OEM

Yeah, the UR bar is not much of an upgrade, but I can tell after receiving it that it is better. Also I like that it is higher, I feel much better with it and my MDX riser. Also I like how it works with the torque damper. All around I think it is better, just not as good as it should be.

IMO for daily road use the UR is sufficient. If you want to get the best bang for your buck you should wait to see what DC Sport has to offer.

You guys say "wait for DC" as if they haven't had a pathetic strut bar for our car for years. It looks like it is barely an upgrade over stock. The UR looks far superior. Plus DC's 2008+ Accord strut bar is ONLY for the 4 cylinder.

I presumed there will be one designed specifically for the V6.

100% agree. I could feel a difference from the stock bar - not a ton but definitely a step up.
