8/9th Gen Accords are going tubular!

New 25mm Tubular Rear Sway bar for 8/9th Gen Honda Accord!

Progress Tech has developed a new tubular Rear Sway bar kit for 8/9th Gen Accords. Now 2008-2017 Accord owners have a choice. Our 'standard' 22.2mm upgrade sway bar or a more aggressive tubular 25.4mm option.

Progress Sway bar #62.0107
Tubular bars provide the necessary rate with less mass than a equivalent solid bar. The new bar is a two-hole adjustable design with lateral stop rings for instant bar response. The larger diameter bar works well with wider wheels & UHP tires, as more grip requires more roll control. This larger option will suit more aggressive drivers looking for flat and balanced and 'closer to neutral' cornering.
Includes our beefy reinforced bushing brackets.

  • Progress 25.4mm diameter precision-bent tubular alloy sway bar.
  • Low-deflection poly bushings and lateral location rings for instant roll response.
  • New bushing brackets with TIG-welded gussets for maximum durability.
  • Powder-coated sway bar and brackets for superior appearance.
  • Complete hardware kit includes bushings, brackets and synthetic chassis lube.
  • Designed for use with OEM end links.
  • Developed specifically for the Accord platform.
  • NOT a Acura cross-over design.
  • Made in the USA.
Sway bar comparision:

OEM               16.0mm solid              Rate = 41 lbs/inch                           

62.0105           22.2mm solid             Rate = 138/153 lbs/inch

62.0107           25.4 tubular                Rate = 200/220 lbs./inch

25mm, 22mm and 16mm (OEM) sways shown above

So which sway bar should I choose? 
The 22m solid or the 25mm tubular sway for my Accord?

If your Accord has original or a mild wheel/tire upgrade, you are a moderate-driving commuter or you drive in a lot of bad weather, the 22.2mm sway bar is a best option for you. If you are an aggressive sporty driver running sticky tires and looking for max cornering power, the 25.4mm bar should be on your shopping list.
