Talking 2013 Accord Ex 3.5 Suspension Upgrade

I recently bought this 2013 Accord 3.6 EX w/Navi and did some suspension improvements on it as I did on my old 06 Accord 3.0.I put in a 22mm Progressive Rear Sway Bar, adjustable style; put it on the "Soft" setting. (Took me longer to take the rear wheels off the car, than to put in this bar) I drove the car for a few days, going through the corners and all. Then, I put on the front stock sway bar, 19mm split collars, right up against the outter side of the sway bar bushings. I tightened them down about as far as I could go without stripping them. As with my old 06 Accord 3.0, these really helped a lot with the body roll. It also did with the 2013 also. It sure beats replacing the front bar on these cars. This is nothing new either. It really does the trick with the bigger bar in the rear.

I wanted to pass this on to others who maybe looking for a bit better handling from there Accord.

How did the 22mm progressive installation go? Did you have to drill holes for the larger bolts? And did you notice a big difference after installing the FSB? I've heard that is a much trickier task than the rear. I'm looking into the RSB, but curious as to whether it's better to go ahead and do both.

Default 22mm Progress Rear Anti Roll Bar:

The bar went in nicely and it is without a doubt worth every penny of it. I did not put it on the aggressive setting either, but bolted the stabilizer bars to the farthest hole away from the bar itself. Works very good.
On my 2013 Accord, which is a 3.5l, coupe, automatic.. I put in split collars on the front anti roll bar. Originally I put them on the outside of the roll bar bushings, closer to the tires. There was no sway at all, no give what so ever. So I moved them to the inward side, tight up against the bushing. That, worked great. This really reduced the body roll a lot. I have had them in now for a while and there is a big difference. The collars I picked up on e bay pretty cheap. It took about an hour to put both sides in. Hardest part was to remove the wheel. Easy job and again, worth it.
This is nothing new. The older Porsche's have them built in, as in my 928s, where I got this idea from.
